Feeder has been going for months and just set the blind two Saturdays ago. My daughter is 12 and has been practicing with her bow for nearly 4 years. This weekend was going to be her first bow hunt. She is devastated!

I would like to replace your pop up. Give me an address and I’ll send you a new one tomorrow. Had it for a while and never taken it out of the box.

Man I really hate hearing this . I grew up not far from there and walked many mile in rice fields each summer North of Inez.

Not what I remember of the area. Heck I have family that still doesn't lock the house when gone.

I have a tripod hanging feeder sitting in my shop ready to feed. It's yours. I'm in Luling and will be back home Wednesday evening. Anyone going that way can pick it up before I get there. I can set this up with my wife at home. 979-236-7046

Mech heads are rural turds we can't flush down the toilet where they belong. Anyone that test positive for meth needs 2yrs in the pen for possession.


Sorry for your loss. Did they steal the blind or just destroy it?

I live in Edna. I have a feeder that I’m not currently using if you need something to get you going until you can get yours replaced.

I’m at the firehouse until Saturday.

Not yet. We set up again last Friday and Saturday. She hunted Sunday morning but nothing showed up. Itís ok. Told her let everything settle down and the deer will start coming back. Working this weekend so weíll be back next weekend. Sheís so excited to get back and a little upset that I have to work. I keep reminding her to be patient, thereís plenty of time. I will report as soon as she connects. Thank you all.

I had a lease last year outside of Huntsville, Texas and had a pop-up set up right off of Chalk Creek. Arrived to the stand to hunt a evening hunt only to find the chair had been stolen out of the stand. Tracked the footprints in the mud back down to the creek and found all the evidence that duck hunters were in the area...

I HATE A THIEF.....
