I installed a booster antenna on one of them that wouldn't get signal......for the first time ever it worked!

Look up "feed and seed" they sell them at the best price most of the time.

Where he's at I bet he has decent LTE, we are just on the outside edge of the band and he's closer to town than us.

One of them actually shot him year before last and lost him. Consistently back and forth between us but now I know where again lol

Was 5-6 year before last so he's got age on him
Keep us updated on that buck, he's a cool deer. Hopefully he stays on your place come season

Pretty busy last few days at the lease. Set up new feeder, trapped coons, topped off cottonseed and did manage to get some shed hunting in.

Oh yea and I had to go to the ER this morning as I am passing a kidney stone.

Thank you. They are by far my favorite bow blinds. I think we've got 5 total now on the ranch, and I wish we had more.

I'll give it a very enthusiastic and positive


Was getting a little worried we might be headed for another 2011, just had the feel. We have def made up for the slow start a little here lately and the long term forecast looks very good in the next few weeks.

1.6" of rain before we left early this am. Ruined a day of turkey hunting but we each got one so I'm happy for teh ranch and the deer. 7.3 diesel, AT tires and muddy roads made for a pretty western trip out to the main gate. But we're home now.

Pretty good weekend for the lease. 4 gobblers, 5 coons, 4 racks of ribs and some good libations killed.....and and some post deer season sleep patterns..







And mine

Use to do text or email and you could send when you wanted. Now it's an app so you just open the app when you want to look at pics and you can set alerts.

me and my dad had kind of a hard time getting turkeys to answer this weekend. We did have one come in to our decoys and calls(my dad missed him).

In llano county it seemed easier to get toms to at least answer our calls.

Does Anyone have any tips or suggestions? Not really wanting to set up on a feeder. We're in the water valley area.
