Thanks for getting the new thread kicked off, Bo! The year has started off nicely and slowly everything is coming alive. Feed consumption had been off the hook for us since January and it slowed down drastically these past 10 days. Seems like deer are either finally loving the greenery that’s been there all along or the weather kicked off a 3rd rut. The latter seems more likely.

Looking forward to another great year. Lets pray that we get plenty of rain and Mexico continues its steady, upward trend in buck quality all around! Cant wait until trail camera season rolls around. Good luck to everyone this year!

A few pics from last weekend:

I’m in this year. Leased out our place in San Angelo and jumped on the Mexico place with Dean. They’ve been eating good so far and the green is nice to see. We are pretty hopeful

Looking mighty good down there. I jumped on a lease with with Dean and Bobby as well, we have a fun group to hunt with. Deer are eating well and I can wait to experience hunting south of the border.

We got ours from a place about 1/2 way to hwy 2 from the border. You go under a overpass and there is a big green and white building on the right . There’s a guy named Rueben that has a store just north of hwy 57 on Hwy 2 as well.

Pretty much impossible to bring one in. You cannot bring it yourself, has to be through a customs broker. Process is long and complicated. Short answer: I dont recommend even trying. Lol

There are some guys on here that have inquired about it before and none have tried it after learning the process as far as i know.

I bought feed at both stores last year and would recommend the place on hwy 2. The store is very nice.

Rueben is cheaper on his feed than the green building place. The green building place is more convenient though.

Just got on this site and didn't realize there are a bunch of central texas guys hunting Mexico. Been hunting Mexico since 1980. The last 4 years have been rough, bad drought in prior years, poor fawn crop results in few mature bucks to hunt. HOWEVER, we have the makings for some super hunting the next 5 or 6 years. The deer were in better shape in mid Jan than I have ever seen them before. With a little March or April rain, the coming year will show off some great Mexico bucks.
Best of luck to all you guys out there.

Good to have you here. Folks on here hunt from below N.L to up by Del Rio. You probably have some neighbors here.

Well some of you have heard about some of the drama on the Seco. Some of the family hasn’t been getting along and some of the family members are going to do their own thing. With that being said we leased one of the ranches that became available. I have never been so excited about being on a new lease. So all you Seco boys call out and maybe we could have a beer sometime.

I've been hunting north of the Columbia bridge off Highway 2. May be looking for a place depending on work schedule. Not sure if I'm going to be able to hunt with possible changes at work but let me know if you guys know of a ranch available.
Thanks

Gonna head down this weekend to fill feeders and check the last round of pictures. Consumption was way down last trip, but curious to see what it looks like now.

Supposed to be a hot one this Saturday. Good luck to everyone heading down!

Rosetta Stone is worth the money if you’re serious! I bought it and learned a lot of things. I need to finish. My X wife took my laptop, in the divorce, that I had my Rosetta Stone tied to!!! BWitch! Lol

I have enjoyed it so far, you've just got to be disciplined and set aside that 15-30 minutes/day.
