We did. I think we got about 2.5" two weeks ago and about 1" to 1.5" last week. It's green but the ponds are still low.

Good deal. We got 2.1" and then 1.1". Much needed! But they did slack off the protein some

Update: We've remodeled the ranch manager's house. He and his wife have moved in and made it a home! We just finished the slab for our barn which will have accommodations, skinning shed, walk in cooler etc. We've redone the water well to have a submersible pump and our deer are eating protein like a 1930's soup kitchen. And we have one very agile pig that needs to be introduced to an arrow! I'll be very happy when the barn is done and I have somewhere to stay, commuting to the Fairfield Inn in Cotulla is a pain in the rump!!

Not much compared to the cost of the ranch! But that’s my way to justify. We spend right at $3k every 6 weeks. They’ve backed off a bit. I’m guessing in response to the rains two weeks ago and new growth.

Starting to see some fawns. Twins here at the house feeder. Barn erectors coming along nicely. Starting to feel like we are making progress.

Update: We finished the shell of the barn and spent all last week framing out the living quarters. It was great to spend the week down there working (I was just a helper to the guys framing but happy to be there!) Electricians, plumbers and HVAC guys there this week. We believe the one goofy looking deer (pic is from last year & the next pic is him this year.) made a pretty dang good jump! Got almost 4" of rain yesterday and now the ponds are all filled and good to go. Couple good bucks showing on game cameras, my shooting range I am putting in has a 25 yd pistol and 100 yd rifle, I hope to extend it later out to 500 yds. Still need to build the bench and cover for that in the coming weeks. Season is quickly approaching and we have tons to do!

Dang Lance, you guys really got after it last week. I wasn't expecting the living quarters to be that far along. The last deer in velvet is awesome. Glad you guys got the good rain. We got 0.00"....oh well. The first buck did make a huge jump. Looking great!
