Default Terrell County- Feed pen ENLARGEMENT

The 24'x24' pen was crowding the deer and not allowing all to visit and be comfortable. We changed that today. Over 70' across.... COME ALL Muleys and Whitetails to Club Antler! Tell your friends!

Went ahead and used 5/8" rebar cut to 4' lengths to drive into the rock vs. t-posts (which are killer to drive out there). Seemed to hold the panels just fine and drove extremely well. And a ton cheaper than new posts.... Panel height is 32"....used 16 panels that were between 10-13' long each.

T-post driver and sledge hammer. I cut the pieces with a bevel to make them sharp for easier driving....only bent a couple!

The occasional goat and sheep as well as javelina and a couple cows and horses that are on the place. They don't mess with the fences and feeders when we put these pens around them. (no jumpers thank God)

My little slice of hunting Heaven in West TX! The muleys come off the mountains and the whitetail appear from the brush and they meet in the middle at the feeder.... I literally watch deer from first light until dark everyday I hunt....
