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.

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.

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

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.

It’s going to be hot and dry out there....I bet we get a lot done though.
The deer have really amped up on feed over the last few weeks.

didn’t think it was possible to amp up more than they were, I guess what little bit of green we had is totally gone again.

We got a smidgeon of rain on the last blowup. Caught the edge enough to make the dust dark and wet a coons back....I’ll take it but sure would have been nice to be in the center of that long storm. So close.

Had a very productive work weekend. Set up 2 Lamco free choice feeders and pens. It was hotter than hell but I’m glad we got everything topped off. I was able to set some coon traps and we got 9.

It sure is nice seeing some rain and cooler temps over the last few days.

It’s been a dry winter, spring and start of summer for us.
