Don't have but a couple cams out but a few bachelor groups running around.



Pigs not liking the new feeder pen on the river.



Pretty sure this is a buck we call stickers that in the past has had bladed type brows with kickers coming off the brows. Had 5 kickers on the bases last year. Should be able to tell in the next couple weeks.

Just mostly big drops and some smaller hail. Those same quarter size hail balls were sitting there all through the rain and after.

Our lease keeps getting missed on most of the rain. It's starting to get pretty dry out there.

Looks like we have some pretty good rain chances coming up this week. Some of our dirt tanks could sure use it.

We stopped about 3 years ago. Most of our tanks have water wells piped in that maintains 'em but we do have a couple dirt tanks that solely relies on runoff.

One of our guys called me from the lease yesterday and said our south pasture and camp got hammered Friday night but barely a sprinkle and wet roads on our north pasture. But as stated, we will take what we can get this time of year.

It still looks as green as it's ever been before out there which is great....because we all know it can AND WILL change soon. It will dry up and look like a desert before long. The good news is, we should have already weathered (no pun intended) the storm again this year to have yet another great year for horn development.

We are north of grape creek on march rd. And didn't get squat. Got a lot of work done this weekend. Should have enough wood for the rest of the year and got some feed pens built. Oh and looked back at some cards and found this gem.
