I'm on the Young / Throckmorton line just a few miles West of Murray. We bought the place a few months ago and have put a ton of work into getting it ready. I'm ready to enjoy it a little.

Where about?
We are about half between Murray and Woodson little south of 209

OP I haven't seen it this green this late in the year either.
I've been hunting out there 8 years and thought I missed my turn into the lease last time.
It's so green it was almost unrecognizable

I've also never seen so many turkey and quail out there.

All growing up I hunted that area. Cloud Ranch. It's where I learned the woods.
Last time I hunted there was 2010 and we had a million coyotes. Curious if they're still thick out there.

I drive just past y'all into Woodson. I butt up against the city limits basically....corner of 209/CR 390

Yotes are pretty bad out there and the quail population has been getting better as well!

Eastern Young here, I finally gave up on the weeds dying and have been running the dozer to make trails so the deer can walk around. I have not had many acorns since the fires, and the deer are hammering the protein and feeders still. We have lots of big healthy deer this year.

Southern young county. Right on the Young Stephens county line. First real year to hunt the new land we got a year and a half ago. This is actually my first year to bow hunt. I know it's going to be wet but I'll be out there this weekend.

I pulled cards this morning and still a ton of deer on camera. My tractor guy is planting my 5 acre food plot with Turner Seed Deer mix in the morning. Schedules and rain pushed us back a week.

My dad and I did get the hot water heater hooked up in the cabin so that's going to be nice.

The fall mix? I was thinking about trying their summer mix next year along with the fall after that. Have you planted that before? Had good luck with it? I'm only looking at doing a kill plot. Nothing big

This is the first time and it's going in a first year food plot. I planted browntop millet and it came in real well. The guys at Turner know my neighbors and what they use so that helps too. I have heard great things about their mixes. My neighbors plant wheat so I'm looking for something different. It went in the ground on Friday.
