Mexico is an unbelievable place with a lot of great people. The country is wild and not like anything I have ever seen.

Do y'all or anyone you know need to fill a gun. I had one lined out, then the rancher went way up and everyone bailed. Any leads would be much appreciated. Y'all have a sweet looking setup down there.

Couple of pics from this weekend. Ranch is drying up very quickly. Lakes are holding well, but brush is drying up very fast. Deer are hammering protein and cottonseed. Got a new feed pen built and cleared spots for 3 more. Gonna start seeing noticeable growth on deer before too long, very exciting!

Had a very productive trip this weekend. Moved some feeders into a few new pens and got everything filled up. Deer are eating protein and cottonseed like crazy despite all the new growth on brush after the rains. For the first time in many, many years all of our lakes are at or near capacity! Shaping up to be an awesome year once again.

I don't know anything about aoudads but I have a female nilgai on my ranch. Saw it twice 2 yrs ago and once last yr. Has never been seen from helicopter. Seems they can hide really well.

Only thing to know about aoudads is that they destroy protein feeders lol
We had quite a few nilgai on El Barrocito before the place was high fenced. They were very rarely seen, but reproduced quite well, we'd see quite a few calves.

Getting hot out there QUICK! Deer are still hitting protein and cottonseed like crazy, it's like it hasn't even rained at all. Got a couple new feeders put out and everything filled back up. Now that the real heavy heat is setting in, consumption should go down considerably. We'll see. Forecast for this week calls for temps between 103-105. We had 1 camera out for a few weeks and after checking pics deer are in great shape and on average bucks are about halfway through growing their brow tines. Lakes are full, but once again brush is drying out very quickly. Hopefully we have a good, slow rain in the near future.

Here are a few pics from our trip this weekend and off of the trail camera:

Those protein feeders look awesome. Brush looks good too. Are they Mexico specials or did you bring them across?

Our new place isn't all that far from you guys so I hope we are that green as well.

Made a quick trip to the ranch yesterday to fill feeders and put cameras out. It was HOT! But the heat is not slowing down feed consumption whatsoever. They're still eating the heck out of protein and cottonseed. We had 1 camera out and so far deer are looking good! Now the growth will be fast and furious for then next 45 days! Can't wait to see what deer look like in a few weeks.
