Had to unclog and fill 4 feeders after the rain. No complaining here though.

What type of Red Chain protein are you feeding? I put out a mix of 17%, Peanut Meal, and Deer Krave this weekend out by Brady.

17%.

I might bump it to 20% if we have a hard winter, but otherwise the 17% works just fine.



Let me know how well they like the deer krave. I saw a sample of it, is it a textured feed?

What's a textured feed? It's pellets, like the other stuff.Smells really good and sounds cool so i added a couple of bags to the mix to check it out. Red Chain hasn't steered me wrong yet.

I thought it was a meal type feed. I must not have been looking at what I though I was looking at

No, it's pellets. Maybe you saw the crushed beet pulp mix stuff. Looks pretty interesting as well, but i passed on that.

This is what I was wondering too.

Went out to santa anna for the day. Got up yesterday morning and left midland about 5, did some work til about one, too hot, drove to lake brownwood to cool off. After that i didnt feel like working so i just messed around in the heat the rest of the day. Got back to midland about 1030. Checked the radar and it looked like rain.

O and saw some doe and rattlesnakes.

You will be amazed at the instant change the rain will make. Glad it fell on you. Keep up the posts. This thread is great. Are you and tiff coming to Lubbock for geese again this year? If you want to hunt a couple of extra days let me know. Waterfowl is looking really good here right now.

Google Earth just updated, and it really shows the progression of the mesquites filling in the middle of the field. Lots of deer moving through that area now.


Im going to continue to let them grow within the upside down and backward "L" shape that they are naturally making, and control any outside of that area.


I should be back out there next sunday, and will hopefully have another round of TC pics to share.

Looks good. I have them filling in adjacent to my food plots now and the deer get more comfortable every year eating in the plots instead of a wide open space.

Very green out here. It hasnt looked like this since 2010!

The deer have backed off of the feeders quite a bit, but im still watching 5 eat at the feeder in the front yard. The two fawns I posted earlier have gotten big.

Today we filled all of the feeders and set up two bow blinds. These Primos Vision blinds are awesome! I have a little more brushing in to do on the next trip, but i think there will be some animals killed out of them.

I have 3 bow blinds set up now. Two will be for a south wind, and one is set up for a north wind.

Next trip down I will make the first plow through the plots. Planting season is rapidly approaching!
