We have been very lucky. We ended up with 4.5Ēs a couple weeks ago when the rain went through S Texas. Iím not sure how much but we got some more Wed. Our deer are fat and happy right now. They are still pounding the protein and cottonseed.

I'm off the Diamond H road and looks like we got a little yesterday and little more this morning. Every drop helps but need more. Looked like SW of Catarina got quite a bit more maybe?

.6" more this morning in Tilden. An even 3" for the week! I will take it. We needed some precipitation and finally have gotten a little. We should be good for the next month or so. Hopefully the forbes and bushes start putting out the new growth so the bucks can do the same for the next couple of months!

Beautiful photo for a south Texas hunter! Accumulated rainfall and big bucks!

What is in the corner of that feeder trough?

Not sure where you are talking about. Timed lamco protein feeder. Only protein in the troughs. In the back is some alfalfa.

I think heís seeing the protein lump that was released from the right tray.

Do you have issues with rain on those feeders? I want to feed year round but Iíd have buy new timed feeders to hunt over. All protein stations are away from stands and free choice, that doesnít work during the season. Timed Lamco is what Iíd want but I worry about the open tray.

No real issues with protein and getting wet. We get rain so sporadically and the feed never stays in the tray long. It never is a problem with morning dew or anything. Occasionally they get gummed up but I would say no more then a normal free choice feeder. 1,000 lb timed feeders last a good long while.

We have several of these trough feeders and donít have issues with feed getting stopped up. The deer love eating out of them. They can keep their eyes and ears up and feel safer. We have had as much as 5 bucks eating out of them at one time early in the season.
