I was actually a bit worried about the trailer on the property next to it and did see that folks that had contract on it before us ended up putting no trespassing signs all over which confirms my concern with that particular neighbor....

Sure like seeing several fellow TBH brothers so close to my place. We'll all have to try and get together sometime for a shoot and trail cam pic slide show

Close tomorrow at 2PM! Pretty excited to say the least.

Mulchers starts next week and should have fence in 2 weeks. Then building and plots.

I will keep you posted. Anyone want to trade a CC boat with no titles in exchange for anything ranch related lol?

Its this boat. Runs good, alarm will go off if you run full throttle for long period. Will run all day at 30-38 mph. I think impeller is week. Its a lot cleaner now. I hot water chemical power washed it. I will get some new pics this weekend.

I will take 1500 for the boat as is no titles. You might have better luck contacting smithnwessen and see if will get you the titles. But don't count on it.

or trade for implements, fence work, protein feeders, ect.

Congrats, I hunted your place back in the early 90's. We had too many guys hunting it, so we didn't see a lot. but others that have hunted it before and after said they saw good deer. Good to see some one that will take care of it take ownership.

good luck,

Jimbow

Ok guys here is an update.

So far I have 12 cameras 2 are Coverts running for 2 weeks now. I have 7 diff bucks and 9 or does best I can tell. I think most of these deer bed to my East and I have found out the two immediate properties to my East including the Maran oil field is not hunted. I did get permission to hunt a small section of my Northeast neighbor. I have found countless rubs and the pigs are starting to leave now that the old owners feeders are gone. I have built two pens one with 10 panels one with eight panels and put protein feeders inside of them. I have cameras running and I'll be pulling pictures tomorrow and staying the night.

The fence contractor starts tomorrow by mulching and removing trees getting ready for new six strand and gates. Couldn't be any sooner as I already have trespassers and it's easy to tell the locals have been driving in and out of this property for some time now. There's been no signs and no gates for years and it's definitely being abused. Hopefully the new gates in the new fence tells all the locals there's a new sheriff in town LOL.

Yesterday we went to wolfvalley buildings and decided on a Model it will be a 14 by 24 with 8-foot walls gambrel style roof with Lofts hopefully delivered in the next two weeks.

Here are some pics from the road view the two different entrances and a few deer I will get better pictures of the bottoms next trip and addition to the fence guy and the building. What can I do with these new Billboards I have? Freedom of speech make a point maybe just a big TBH sticker!

Yes. But for now I have to give the benefit of the doubt who knows who's been told they can hunt there over the years fence going in starting tomorrow.

Hopefully the new fencing sends a message. It's awfully close to Cooke County, Sherwood Shores, and Oklahoma. May have a meth lab fired up in there anytime.

Looks like an elm to me. How much ground did that mulcher cover in a day? I've got to get one out to clean up spots the dozer couldn't get to on my place.

The wood from the billboards would make good sign material to hang around your fence perimeter.

Also get you some purple paint and start painting your trees on the perimeter.
