Looks good Chew. Did those springs work out for the hog trap?

I didn't know you had miniature axis on your place.
I also hear they're spots fall off about Sept or so. I've never found a mini axis spot on the ground. But have seen the mini axis. It's the opposite strain of a mega fawn.

Had to bring in a hog trapper this weekend. They are tearing up my back 10 acres from the creek to the back fenceline. Im just not up there enough to hunt and trap.

This guy put out a camera on one of my feeders and poured out a bunch of magic corn. I showed him recent pics of my group of 20-25 regulars.

Both of his cellular traps are tied up at a ranch a few miles away but he is expecting to have one available soon.

Hopefully he can catch a bunch. I had only one deer pic this past week.

I warned the hog trapper that my place is a vacuum when it comes to cell service. He needs it for his camera/trap system. Hogs are tearing it up but he cant get a signal. He said hes got another camera down in the river bottom that has never failed to get a signal and he hopes to get it soon.

Taking these pics I've learned I am not a good aerial photographer. I was focused getting close ups of your camp and not the entire property.

I just read through this whole thread. You have an awesome place. I believe my 21 acre "Ranch" is very close to yours. I feel like we are a lot alike, if I'm not at my property working on something I'm thinking about something up there I could or should be working on.

Put some trees in the ground this weekend. Red oak and live oak. Didnt have as much room to plant as i thought due to existing tree cover. Didnt rake many pics.

Used the new sprayer I got for Christmas to get them all watered.

Lots of good fire pit time with the family. Brother in law visited. Hogs didnt cooperate. Had the hog light on the feeder kickin out green and a lit reticle on the Sig AK47.

Up here now to mow and take measurements for a new culvert project. Had over 2000 trail cam pics. Big groups of hogs have moved on with only a few solitary beasts remaining.

Nice bachelor group that has list all their horns.

Will have the wife on the John Deere mower and me on the Kubota in the morning. Daughter will be on the polaris "supervising".
