There is a dry creek that runs through the whole place and two very small tanks.

Making them a lot larger is one o the first priorities

I was really surprised by the axis. The previous owner had pictures of them back in 2014 so they’ve been in the area a few years at least.
Bring some over to the Smith Ibar!!

Congrats on the new place.

Court, Rod, big congrats to yall ! Yall gonna have some great fun.



That's some beautiful country down there . I hunted through day-lease the Winkel River Valley pasture just west of town, for a few years back in the early and mid 1980s. Always dreamed about owning something in the area since then.

First thing I would do to keep the axis around is put out a Lamco style timed protein feeder and a water trough.

There is a well that supplies water to a small trough and small tank. The plan to is to replace the small trough with large one and build / repair tanks.
Protein feeder is on the list but I'd like to start feeding alfalfa and cotton seed at some point.
The neighbor has been running his cattle on the property. We will be removing cattle and switching to wildlife exemption.

Sounds like a good plan. Keeping the water troughs full at our place is a full time job. The fun work starts now. At our place the axis will eat the alfalfa/Chafhaye sooner or later, but do not sprint in for it like they do the protein.

The reason they only sent one pair of gloves is those gloves are “pointing gloves” so you can point the workers to projects of work
