Always look forward to this time of year. Really makes you appreciate all the hard work that has been put in to get to this point. Amazes me to see how much the younger deer can change from year to year. Come on November.

Our mounts are finally done. Two old bucks from the bonito. These two deer are very special to me and the guys that I hunt with. I wanted to try and re create them the way they were when they were harvested. I couldn't be more pleased with the detail and thought that my taxidermist put into these deer. My wife's deer was 13.5 and my deer was 8.5 years old. If these two old warriors could tell a story I am sure it would be a good one. Her deer has the darker hide mine has the lighter one. Many thanks and much appreciation go to the guys I hunt with and to the ranch. The best part about it all is I was able to watch my wife kill her biggest deer to date.

Made a quick trip to the ranch last week to put out some feed and check on a few things. Saw quite a few deer and they are in great shape. Got there just in time to get soaked with 1.1" of rain and then slip and slide around the ranch filling feeders. It was a great trip as always.

We got a little over 1 1/2" rain last night between 7:00 - 12:00 according to Farm Logs, heading down Saturday to do some checking, might need mud boots!

Took a quick trip to the ranch this weekend to fill feeders and check trail cameras. Consumption has slowed down about 30-40%, likely from the heat and good crop of mesquite beans we have. Deer are in good shape all around. Lakes is dropping very quickly despite the 1"+ rain we had 10 days ago.

Here are a few pics from this weekend:

Went to the ranch on Tuesday. Hot would be an under statement. But did see quite a few deer laid up under the mesquite trees. Ranch looks great for August. Truck showed 113 degrees Tuesday afternoon. Season can't get here soon enough.
