Yep we’ve fed right at double of what we did to date last year. We’re kind of wishing we would have shot a few more deer off last season.

Ones on your neighbors there would be covered. Sometimes the whole ceiling covered in wasps. Got to where we just left multiple wasp spray cans in each one. Not sure if there were some old gaskets or something out causing it. Not sure on that part.

Yeah...we should have killed twice as many deer last year as we did, we are feeding 3 tons every 3 weeks and feeders are empty when we fill them...deer are looking pretty healthy though.

Man I feel ya. We are feeding 6 tons every 4 weeks. Praying for any amount of rain at this point even though things looked pretty green this past weekend.

I'm wanting to get back out to the lease bad!!!!

Been way too much work and not enough play lately for me. We are hoping to have a big work weekend later this month or early July.

Ready for trail camera season to kick off. This watching does and horns to G2s on the Covert is getting me anxious.

Have a couple cams out. Added some more today. Some of the deer are grown out pretty good. Some of the older looking bucks only 5” or so grown out.

I heard they had some heavy hail over your way a couple weeks ago. Did you get any damage?

I’ve talked to the Ranch mgr a couple of times and he didn’t mention any hail.
I hope not.

Always fun taking the kids out. My boys have been begging to go but those 100 degree days are keeping us in central Texas most weekends.

Per ranch manager. “Yes across the highway.. but none that I know on y'all. Today the wind is high and high temp.. so hopefully nothing has just been sitting there just waiting.. that is the concern. Wicked dry lightening about 8 last night.. started 4 fires that I know about
Got home about 1:30 last night..
I am not aware of any big fire that required fire fighters on walnut. There were some false alarms do to the high wind and dirt in the air. Far as I know. Nothing on y'all burned..
It was wild.. I had 40 to 50 mph wind and dirt.. temp went from 108 to 66 in about 20 mins”

I think we are alright. We had guys out there yesterday and this morning. They said it was fine. Great info. Thanks for the heads up. Let’s hope it all gets contained. Prayers up. Fingers crossed.
