Are you still out at the ranch?? We had four inches here in Del Rio along with some large hail and 50 mph winds. Hope it was all rain for the rest of the state.

I saw it coming but it was too late to get out. Stuck it out at camp. Killed a hog, coon and found a rattlesnake in the camp house soon after arriving. Rained like the dickens, but only some small hail at the ranch. I'll post pics later.

I unloaded the truck into the camp house. Didn't even turn the lights on. Its a two room cabin basically with a living area/kitchen and an attached bathroom. I walked around the kitchen table, turned the lights on from behind the fridge, walked back the same direction and headed for the door to go turn on the water. I turned around to grab something off the kitchen table and spotted him sticking out from under the kitchen sink cabinets. I walked by that snake at least three times. I was wearing tennis shoes and tac pants. I hurriedly put on my snake boots. loaded my .38 with snake shot and went after him. I tried to pin him down and drag him with a broom stick, but he slipped away and went under the cabinet. Great. And now he's pisssst! I drag him out form under the cabinet with the broom, smack him on the head several times to hopefully stun him. Got another broom, made like huge chopsticks and picked him up. Took him outside and finished him. Scared the begeezus out of me. This is the first I've seen on the ranch in 6 years. And it would have to be in the cabin. So I slept (went to bed rather) with my snake boots next to the bed and all the lights were on. Its no wonder I haven't been seeing any mouse droppings around. I did not sleep very well this past weekend.

Finished up filling feeders on Saturday, checking game cams and hunted for those 5 rams. Never did find them. Not even a ewe or lamb. Hunted my stand Saturday evening and whacked this pig near dark.

I could see the storms building, but knew I had no chance of getting out before the storms arrived so I stuck it out. Opened up the barn door in case I needed to move my truck in due to hail. Fortunately, I didn't need to. It did rain though, and it rained hard. I was a little worried the creeks would be running and I wouldn't be able to make it out, but they were fine.

I don't think I'll be going back for awhile.

Hahaha that snake would've had me sleeping in my truck!!! No way in hell I could've slept in the camp house. Glad to see you found him before you went to bed!

We are headed to the lease April 28th. If we can get everything done that we need to we will try to do a little hunting.

Default No idea how...

but it's a metal building on a slab. I'm pretty sure it found a way to get in, the same as the mice.

Seth, I've never tried it on this place, but I know here in Kerr County they tear it up. They hadn't touched it before I left on Sunday. However, I went back to that stand on Sunday morning and opened the bale up a little so expose the greener stuff. I've got a camera on that feeder too so I'll be able to check it in a month or so.

Looks like it rained at the lease pretty good then as well. Anytime I look at the RADAR I'm looking at Val Verde County.

Glad I found this thread. This is my second season on the Brewer. We had good bucks on camera late season but early season was tough. Pigs took over so we put in some feed pens around a few feeders. I'm already thinking about now season pretty much non stop! Can't get here soon enough.

Rain is setting up a good year so far. If VV keeps stacking good years it's gonna pay big time. The deer are there. Here's to hoping it's a cold dry winter so the deer hammer the corn.

I'm guessing its looking pretty green out there right now. I haven't been out since the end of March/first of April. Itching to get out there and work on some hogs and add tot he coon carnage count. I don't wanna see any more rattle snakes in the cabin though. That was a real downer for the weekend.

but it was before I got on the lease. The guys next door have seen them along the Pecos River though. I saw a huge one just off the main highway on the last weekend of the regular season in January a few years ago. Locked up with a doe. I keep hoping a good one will present himself.

I hunted mulies for 30 years north of Van Horn in the Delaware and Apache Mountains. It will have to be a gagger before I kill it.

One of the guys on our lease just down the road from the Brewer killed a mule deer last year. I've never seen any though. We were out there last weekend killing coons. It was plenty green, and they got lots of rain last week. But as green as it is, I still have several at the feeders regularly. Still learning the area, its only our second year out there.

TP3, I've seen the quality of bucks killed on the brewer in years past by my group and also the solid deer we had on camera. We were picky and only killed 4 bucks last year. However, I was surprised at the number of young pencil horned deer brought to camp by other pastures. Is that the norm with some of the other groups there?

I think you'll find that the guys that have been there awhile are not the one shooting those small deer. But when you have 15 or 16 pastures and two or three turn over every two or three years you get a lot of folks in and out. There are some really excellent deer out there by our standards at least, but you can't shoot the first eight point you see. I also think that some people drive so far to get there that they don't want to go home empty-handed even if that means shooting a deer that you or I wouldn't think about shooting. That is not an excuse, and it burns me up too.
It's definitely not a trophy lease by most people's standards, but a mature deer out there is a heck of a nice specimen. We are also just now recovering from that drought, and I think some of the guys that hunt out there don't know what a buck over 3 years old even looks like.

I see. Thanks for the response. Your right about the good bucks. Last year was tough for us with the rain and warm winter but we had great bucks on camera and I've seen some game pics of monsters as well as mounts from years past. Was just a little surprised seeing some of the deer that were killed.

How is October out there usually? Deer weren't really hitting our feeders hard last year for bow season but I'm hoping it was just the weird conditions. Late season was definitely better for us.

October is great. Bucks are in bachelor groups and not many people hunting them.
I don't really bow hunt the feeders though. I have much better luck corning away from the feed pens and setting up there.

I built a big box blind this past summer, and they completely ignored it by bow season.

Unfortunate a lot of that rain came down in storms that dumped multiple inches in very short spans of time. While that is better than no rain, too much of it runs off with little to no benefit. Things are starting to get a bit yellowish/brownish.

It's been extremely hot these last few days. 105 plus 4-5 days made it seem like august temps already. Hopefully we get some relief in the form of rain soon but I am not holding my breath on it.

On a good note, I have noticed a lot of healthy looking does running around out there that should be getting ready to drop fawns soon. Found this one stuck in the river the other day and we were fortunate to be able to get it out.

Thanks for the update. I figured the temps were up there in the triple digits. Vegetation starts to get a little dry and brown this time of year. that part of the country never really seems to get any sustained rain events where it has time to soak in and really benefit the vegetation/wildlife. Like you said, it comes down 3-4' at a time and runs right off. It foes fill up the huge holes in the rocks for us though so the critters can have some water. We don't have much in the way of water on the lease so those "pots", as we call them work until it evaporates off. There are several pots close to my feeder. i take a shovel out once a year and dig out the silt that builds up. One of them is close to 3 feet deep.

Blake's FIL set up a water station on our lease this spring. It's probably 800 yards away from the only pond in the area. I bet they are hammering that station now! It'll be interesting to see how long it lasts them during the heat of summer.

Yeah! I was hoping Blake was going to get to go this weekend so we could check it out. I'm interested also!

Default I'm interested...

in the water station idea. Is this one that he must haul water to? I'm not sure I could haul the water to where my feeder is. It's a long way in and very rough country. I've thought about a guzzler like I've seen in some places. Also thought about building a small rain catchment system, but don't think I could build it big enough to catch enough rain to fill a trough.

It's a 275 gallon tote that fills a small plastic pan via a trough float valve. The pan is in a hog panel pen and the tote is outside with rocks stacked around the pvc between the two. Water is hauled to it with another tote and pumped in.
