Thanks Sooner.... I try to take pictures as I go and post them.. Sometimes they are not in order since I don't have service at my place... It's really cool to look back on as a time line and the place it's become....

It's a bulletstop... The fence line is behind it about 5 yards or so... Don't want to be Shooting across fence lines and a lot safer that way... It usually has water in it from rainfall so it's somewhat of a water source also... I hope vegetation starts growing on it soon

Dug some ditches installed sub panel and got electrical ran to my shooting shack and light pole down the hill


Quite a personal accomplishment to have a light and no more propane heaters.... And most of all I didn't hurt myself....

It's felt like forever since I have been able to get to the hill country and relax... Didn't get much work done this time but we kayaked and did some some deer watching... My brother and nephew came down and had a good time aswell
My brother and nephew with my bro's axis doe


Me cleaning up
Watching whitetail munch on the corn.. Very peaceful
Some of the bruisers in the cooler at the processor.. Quite impressive


Some wildlife the boys found together ...
.
The evening before you leave is alwYs bittersweet but this sunset was perfect!!!!

Didn't get any pictures of the kayak float but the river was flowing awesome and bass were biting... Weather was awesome .., perfect day
