Yes sir. Got a full crew. We are still doing good on our end from last yrs floods. But, now the time to get rain when it makes the biggest difference.

Always a great time picking sheds up from deer you watched all season.
Majority of them came from around water and Ponds.

How close are you the San Angel, or San Nicolas down the pipeline road? I hunted the San Angel for two seasons, during 2010-2012 timeframe. I believe the front gate was about 6-8mi down the turn off, if I recall.

Our owner owns 2 ranches, the one we're not on is down that side about 20 miles.

Fingers crossed we got two days of 70% chance of rain late this coming week! Hope it’s 2 days of slow steady rain!

Spent a long weekend exploring our place. Brush looks great, especially considering we haven't had but trace rainfall since December. Our protein and cottonseed consumption is ramping up fast. Deer look in great shape. I sure hope we can get some more rain down there.

Found some nice sheds, but more importantly had fun with friends south of the border.

Need to get some rain bad but ranch was surprisingly in great shape all the way around. Bring on the April rains! We may have had a cold beverage or 10!

Anybody on the corn prices out of Piedras Negras? We're being told $10 a bag plus $80 delivery, but it's not from direct feed store. I was thinking it was around $7?
