Hunt In: Land Baron in Rocksprings TX
Default Finally, Iím a land baron

So, after many sleepless nights and agonizing days back and forth with the bank(2 months past original closing date) we are land barons in Rocksprings as of 1030hrs today. We are excited to start our journey as land owners and look forward to the many years of memories with our 4 boys. Itís not much(20ac) with a small house, but itís ours and weíre overwhelmed with joy and excitement. God is awesome! My oldest boy and I will be out there tomorrow putting up game cams, feeders and a stand or two. The previous owner did convey several stands and feeders Iíll be selling cheap if anyone is interested. Now, let the work begin......

Thanks for the kind words gents. I’m spending one of my off days every week out there to get some minor work done. I’m setting up another feeder, that’ll make two and one more trail cam tomorrow morning. My next project is to figure out water stations and maybe some cottonseed stations as well.
