Question for the guys who hunt around Guerrero Coah, where do you get your feed?
Is there a feed store in Guerrero?

Santa Maria*

They make their own blend of 20% medicated and non-medicated pellets and have cotton seed.

They'll deliver to the ranch for a fee.

Just had the feed tested. Purina said very high quality. That's consistent with tests we've been doing annually for years

Should they ask for the El Gato blends Rusty?
Yessir, Ruben and those guys are very helpful and extremely competitive in price with great quality feed.
They have cotton seed in stock as well.
Medicated 20% or non-medicated.

Thanks - we cross at Br 2.

Anyone know what corn is currently running a 50# bag? $7-8?
I am getting my numbers together for the ranches corn budget.

Sure looks green.

Can anyone post up the link to that letter you are supposed to carry w/ your bow when traveling in Mexico? I assume a letter and a copy of your hunting agreement is all you need.

You don't need a letter to travel with a bow...or a hunting agreement.
