Thumbs up Ran across a piece of my bowhunting past

Doing some cleanup at work and brought home a box of stuff I have had packed away for some time. Started going thru it to throw away stuff that needed throwing away and ran across this...

This was the first place that I paid to go hunt at when I first got into bow hunting over 30 years ago. Didn't kill anything but saw lots of deer and turkeys. Those were exciting times...How many others on here went there over the years.

I’ve had the pleasure of being all over it, but never hunted it. Beautiful property. We always saw some great deer out there.

Same here. Me and my best buddy worked for Homer the summer after I graduated high school. We filled feeders, general maintenance stuff, but mostly drank beer! Saw a lot of cool wildlife out there.

I hunted there in the mid 90s with a group of fire-fighters from Bryan and College Station. Great place!

Homer’s was great. That was our first year there, that is actually me and “Bish” 4th and 5th from the left. Our group hunted every year till they went to the corporate lease.

That place was awesome! Good memories were made there. I was disappointed when they stopped day hunts.
