Our deer have been hitting the feed pretty consistent. So far we've fed 3 tons of protein and expect to fill another 1.5 tons next week. They are mowing the cottonseed down. We will topping off cottonseed feeders this week.

Looks like it's rolling in to our neck of the woods. Best thing is that it is widening out and still growing so it should dump some good rain!

I noticed the heavy part of the storm went directly over us and long ways too so better than it looked. Hope it last a bit longer out there

Hope my trailer is still upright, at least it is running east to west so hopefully it didn't catch that wind broadside.

.7 inches here in town. Crazy winds for a little bit. Looks like we got a little more north of town. Was going to run out and see how much protein is getting eaten but think I'll wait until it dries up a little.

Joining the party! We are headed down to our lease on Friday. Hope all is well there. Time to move a few set-ups, add corn to feeders, and maybe kill a few thunder chickens.
