Where did you buy the cell phone booster and does it work only for one carrier (AT&T)? How far does it work for? It looks good!

It's a Wilson Weboost like the one for cars. You just buy the 110 plug for it and use regular antenna. That's the antenna for big trucks I mounted to the house. We go from no signal to 4 bars with it on.

We got about 90 of those panels at an auction for $150. Guys that have used them are cutting one or two bars off the top.

Went and filled feeders this past weekend. No monsters on camera, but had some good deer. Camera went dead on the 22 on June, so we should have some more come September on the next trip.

I can't keep enough of it out right now. They've taken to it big time and prefer it over protein so I stopped protein. I have 2 hoops at my bow stand and it will last 2 weeks max before needing filled again. They're eating enough I can't keep up with my dump trailer and will probably be getting an 18 wheeler load for next spring

Shoot I'll see what it goes for when it comes time. Not sure how much they can haul but I can use whatever they can bring haha. Gone through 4 tons in the last month and that's with them running empty while I've been at work. Could go through a 20 ton load pretty quick if all stations were kept full. Plan on starting them earlier next year also to get bodies in shape quicker

Default 2017 San Angelo area season thread

Spent 3.5 days getting my huge todo list checked off without having to bother anybody else or vice versa.

Trimmed my best pen. Had grass thigh high in some places. Blind is inside pen so I like my walk-in grass to be short for scent purposes. Also trimmed around TC camera.

Before





After





Drained 350 lb of weevil infested corn from my buddy's feeder after a wellness check. Cows smashed varmint guard and forced plate against funnel. Hasn't fed since early May I bet. Corn was nasty.





Repaired his camera solar panel something ripped out of his box





Installed a 12 volt booster in my favorite blind that has no service. Same blind I had to run a couple hundred yards uphill from last year when I shot Woodford to let lease members know I shot him. Works like a champ from nada to 2 bars of LTE constant.















Filled water, corn, scrubbed water troughs, repair my own TC solar at my other blind, in stalled some guest shelves fir folks that sit in the blind for me, did some cabin shelving upgrades too. Was a long productive 3.5 days!

Also Humper got a pic of Splitter. We're behind all y'all as usual but he's off to a good start. Hopefully the rest of our mature deer start showing up. Although if Mother Nature wants to keep feeding them until October, that's fine with me too..

Last year



This year







Also killed some of Jrs BFFs..... 7 total



And sat by a small Sat night mesquite fire with a vodka cocktail and relaxing after a successful list catch-up trip..
