Default 6/30/19 Update

The deer are hammering protein and cottonseed. We added an additional cottonseed feeder in each pen so that there are 2 cottonseed feeders in each pen. we now have around 700lbs of cottonseed per feed pen. Saw a lot of fawns and everything is still very green and tall. The grass is nearly 4ft in some areas. All of the blackbuck seem to be doing really well. We will be putting some cattle out there next week to graze thru end of August/early September to help reduce some grasses. Thistles are everywhere out there. I was told that big fall rains cause thistles to pop up everywhere. Iím hoping we can figure out something to reduce/prevent them from coming back next year.

I pulled some cameras this past weekend and are starting to see G4ís staring to grow. Iíll try to post some trail cam pics sometime this week.

Awesome!! You should be able to recognize some bucks by now, curious how many of your big boys are still around.

I’m hoping by the next card pull I’ll have a better idea. Once I get the next round of pics I’ll post some comparison pics from last year to this year.

My dad and brother are out there this weekend moving some bow blinds around and getting some feeders filled.

Here is a picture of the two cottonseed feeders to show the consumption over 2 weeks:

We will top off the cottonseed feeders one more time this year because we want to make sure it's all gone by Sept. 1st just to be certain it's out of their system by the time the rut rolls around. I know our deer aren't eating a 30% diet of cottonseed so they won't have a high level of gossypol in their system but we just want to be certain.

My twin brother sat in the big blind this morning and saw 9 doe, 4 fawns and the big male blackbuck:

Default Moved a Bow Blind

We moved one of our large bow blinds to a section that will be near a 2-acre food plot and within 150-yards of water. We are readjusting some of our spots to ensure we can hunt a North or South wind. This blind is looking WNW to the feeder.

Looking good! I love following along! I can’t wait to see what you can grow now that you’ll have more control over age structure.

We will see how everything does after a couple of years of management and feeding. It’s kind of like we are starting over. The good news is that we have been feeding heavily going on 8 years now. The good thing is that we won’t have to worry about the 3.5, 4.5, and 5.5 yr olds jump the fence and get shot. I really wish the two 12-pointers weren’t shot. That 4.5yr old typical 12 could have been a stud this year!
