did any one hunt the west texas bobcat contest? Me and 3 other lease mates are doing the one this month. I know we are loaded with foxes and have seen a cat or two so it should be a fun time.

Went last weekend. Topped off protein and cottonseed feeders. It snowed almost 1 inch Friday night on the drive in. Woke up Saturday morning to a winter wonderland. By noon Saturday all the snow had melted.

Made a quick day trip to grab my ranger and top off feeders. Deer are looking fat and happy. My son found a nice shed on a new place I just leased, so that made his day.

I think so too. I was watching it today while putting out feed. Got 2 tons of protein put out today and delivered 3 tons of cottonseed yesterday and will be filling baskets tomorrow. Deer look to be in pretty good shape already hopefully some timely rains and feed will treat them well

Post up your pics and stories fellas as usual. Hunts, trail camera pics, LDPs, work weekends, new projects, food, drinks, coons and other varmint carnages are all welcome! The more participation (and last year was a great example) the better the thread. Here's to a bountiful 2017 for us Angelo area hunters!
Ain't no deer in Angelo!!! Tom Green, Coke, Sterling, etc, no deer, none. Stay in north Texas where all the deer get HUGE!!!!!!

That chance for rain next week would be nicely timed if we get it.

I'm bbbaaaccckkk!

After doing some thinking I decided to get back in the Angelo area. We had some issues with the Brady place so I decided to head back west. Looking forward to sharing some more with everyone in the area.
Hunting in the Watervalley area with a good group. Ready to get setup and get this offseason rolling right!




PS don't ask about openings in Brady, the lease manager had a long wait list of his buddies or they were just gonna make up the difference themselves.

That's what I feel like. I'm still looking for that unicorn. So far this place is as close as I have been. I've hunted with great groups of guys the past few yrs but had different issues at each place. I knew this last season might be a 1 and done but it was worth it. Trying to dig some deep roots in this one. Been trying to get to this area since 2009 but never had an Opp. One finally came a knocking so here I am.

Really missed my west tx homies!

Yep now the work starts......AGAIN! But I like it. Already have some big plans.

One is to not loose another cell phone out in the pasture...not fun or cheap.

I hunted in Water Valley. It was a high fence lease though so no real experience with the hunting. Like that area though.
