Default 3/12/2017 Update

We went out there this weekend to fill all of the protein and cottonseed feeders. We got our new 1,200lb Krivoman timed protein feeder set up so we now have two of the Krivoman timed feeders running. We started building our big a%* bow blind, built our quail feeder/watering station and did some strip disking to see if it will help promote any forb/grass growth. Everything is greening up out there, but it's still fairly dry so hopefully we get some rain soon. We are now gearing up for turkey season and filled up the turkey feeders. Here are some pictures from the weekend:

The second and last pics are of one of the food plots. They are green, but the cows and deer are keeping them mowed down low.

Thanks guys! We set the timed feeders to be open from 5am to 7am and 6pm to 8pm. We are doing this to help control the amount of protein feed the deer are eating, but we also have cottonseed available at all times from January through the End of August. The cottonseed is $230/ton, so it's around 1/2 the price of protein. I wish we could feed 20,000lbs of protein a year, but we can't afford that. Our goal is to feed around 12,000lbs of protein this year.

Default Quail Feeding/Watering Station

My brother and dad finished the quail feeding/watering station yesterday. We will eventually put a trail camera inside and see how often it's used.

Default 3/18/2017 - Cottonseed Feeders

Here's a picture of one of our cottonseed feeders after one week of use. We had piled up the cottonseed so that you could barely see the top of the t-post and also put a pile of cottonseed between the cottonseed feeder and the Krivoman feeder.

Consumption for both cottonseed and protein has definitely slowed down over the past couple of weeks, which i'm assuming is due to everything greening up nicely out there. Hopefully we can all get some rain in the next week or so.

Looking good! I really like the quail feeding station. Please update as you can on it. Our wildlife exemption covers ground nesting birds and we are deciding which way to go on a quail feeder.

Thanks! I'll be out there April 7th through the 9th topping off protein/cottonseed feeders and doing some turkey hunting. I'll check the camera card on the quail feeder and post up some pictures. I'll also take some more detailed pictures of the quail feeder.
