Thanks man! Yeah not much public land hunting for me any more.

Hopefully, Oklahoma treats me well and we have lots of deer, and very little hogs. After being there this weekend it's looking like I may have some work to do on the hogs. We will see in a couple of weeks.

It doesn't matter where you go! If you don't have hogs you will

haha I figured so. I found that the pigs are using the telephone poles and are rutting circles around them. They're going to give me something to hunt in the off season.

Well me, the wife, and the dog made a quick run to the ranch to make a list of things we need to get done and check the cams. One cam on the road got hit by one doe almost everyday and the one on the power line saw about 5 different deer throughout the week. Looks like 4 does and one buck.

One doe is either really fat and healthy or sheís still prego. Not really sure.

Well yesterday was a long hard day at the ranch. Repaired a section of fence, hung a gate, installed a new gate post, cut a small path for the 4 wheeler to get through, setup a new feeder, and crossed the creek to get into a place that I have yet to step foot in. Of course, the spot across the creek looks awesome and has a trail that is flat worn down with deer tracks, and the wife claimed it as her spot. She's calling it "Queens Landing". haha I try to post a few pictures from what my wife took, but I didn't think to take any. I was doing most of the work and was trying to get things done while I could.

I pulled cards off of the two cameras I had going. One cam looks like it has crapped out on me, but I had about 3500 pics between the 2 in about a month and a halves time. One cam had a doe and buck frequently passing by (this one was just on the main road) and the other had a handful of does, 2 bucks, a fawn, and a bunch of hogs. I think once I get the hogs out of there I will be seeing more deer. That and I didn't have any feed out during the past month with everything so green. Now that the feeder is up and running, they ought to be coming in more. Probably have 30 pigs to kill or run off.

Here are some tc pics. We have some big pigs, 1 healthy fawn, a handful of does, and a decent buck. We havenít had really any corn or feed out until now for the most part. Hoping if I get after the hogs the deer will really show up.

Check out "the hunting grounds" on YouTube. He only has 100 acres and turns it into deer heaven. It's pretty cool to watch it develop.

Well I'm headed to the ranch this weekend to mow, move a feeder, hang a couple of stands, check cameras, and spray for food plots. Trying to figure out if I should plant one big food plot in the big power line in the center of my place or plant 3 separate plots. If I do 3 I'll have one on the SE side of my place (1/3 acre), one in the power line in the center (1/2-1 acre), and one on NW side of my place (1/3 acre). Thoughts on what I should do? I will have two feeders running this season as well. I'll have one on the power line and one in the opening on the SE part of my place. I will post more pics when I get back on Sunday!

Congrats Brandon! Looks like a great place.

I assume you still have to buy an out of state license since this is not your primary residence?

Unfortunately, yes I have to buy an out of state license. Good thing is the taxes for the property in Oklahoma are almost nothing. That was a trade off for not buying land in Texas. Taxes in Texas would be more than the license cost and the deer season in Oklahoma sets up better for the bow hunter.
