I’m loving this. Ranches in amazing shape and lakes that barely had any water are filling fast ����

Mama needed me to get the girls out of the house so we went to do a "pasture check" to see what shape the ranch is in and feed some deer. Crazy running water everywhere but the roads weren't sloppy at all. Leasemate shot a really nice management deer this morning, he had to go get a receiver hitch winch to load this sucker up. Tenderloins encased in fat! No shortage of deer groceries!

We know exactly how you fill, minus the divers swimming around.

Look on the bright side, at least your feed pen and feeders did not get swept off by running waters...............like some of ours.......ha ha

Anyone have updated for Hwy 190? Has the water started to go down yet? Looking for a fast trip maybe Oct30th - Nov 1st. I have to top off feeders before my big trip in November.


I would like to be able to take my jeep renegade 4x4 to save on my gas getting up there also...

According to one of our lease mates 190 was "passable" west of Eldorado Friday evening and it hasn't rained since then so I expect is fine by now. The airport is right outside of town and the south side of the airstrip is essentially a "bowl". There's just no place for the water to go once the ground is saturated the way it is.

190 should be passable at least before the next expected dose of rains they are predicting for Wednesday. I guess I will be finding out Thursday morn!!

This tank has never held water. The most I have ever saw in it at any time in the last few years is maybe a foot in the very middle, but it is dry 99% of the time.

In the last week we have had 5Ē of Rain. I might try and duck hunt it this season.

I have not been able to go to our place near Robert Lee, but my son and several others were there this weekend.

Total stuck for 2 days:
*Hummer
*Tractor stuck getting the Hummer out
*4x4 Ford Ranger
*Dually (belongs to Rancher)
*Trooper

ONLY thing that did not get stuck was our Polaris Ranger Crew...winch on front helped get everything moving again except for the Tractor...it's gonna' have to sit for a while and dry out some. Like many, we have stock tanks and ponds that were close to dirt, now overflowing...WOW….Just WOW.....

Got help from my wife's kids this coming weekend to take care of her recovering from hip replacement...can't wait...NO MORE RAIN PLEASE!!

The story is...that pic was taken this morning in the same area as the airstrip pic Smart posted above in Eldorado. Thereís a little 9 hole golf course right next to the airstrip and apparently a real genius Google Earth ďstreet viewĒ car driver chose to test the high water. Iím guessing thatís gonna look great on their resume.
