Sorry I haven't checked in, my phone has been on the fritz and so I haven't been able to get on. Back at the ranch with a computer now.

We were hit by a tornado a few weeks ago. A lot of big trees down and a few blinds were tossed and destroyed. I'm looking at getting a couple of atascosas before next season.

I put a camera in the front yard, and have been pretty impressed by the Bucks so far. A few appear to have worms, so I will try to dart them in the next couple days. Check out my obese blackbuck below.

I will be in Africa until the 30th, and will update when I return. Thanks for following along.

What is your basis for thinking your deer have worms? Did you do a fecal exam or any blood tests? Just curious.

Body condition relative to other deer and the current conditions. When I see a 2 yr old with a bloated gut showing ribs and hips I would bet the ranch on worms.

If I remember correctly your place was high fenced after your purchase. Are your deer native deer? What was your deer density like before the fence ?

Those blackbuck are very cool. Have they been successfully breeding/ population growing? We are in the mesquite country of Shackelford co. and I have wondered how they would do on our HF place. We are at constant war w/ the coyotes, and everything I have read is that coyotes are detrimental to the blackbuck fawns.

They are by far my favorite exotic in TX.

Yes, I counted at least 6 new babies in the past week.

Coyotes/cold weather can be very hard on them.

Got 2 deer darted with wormer last night and this morning. Hoping to see a difference in the near future. If they do not have worms, its a rumen problem and is out of my hands.

May be building pens in the very new future to breed fallow deer.

I am currently building 8 acres of pens for fallow deer. I have purchased 3 fantastic bucks and 45 doe. My pens will be completed by September 1.

My goal is to make the ranch my sole source of income. This will be an exciting journey.

Getting very dry out here. A little rain next week has me hopeful!

Fallow pens are starting this week. I will update as more visible progress is made.

I dont care for TBH anymore.

I currently have 62 fallow in the pens. All out of BIG stuff. One breeder is double palmed on his left side, another is 32" wide.

10 Gemsbok on the way as well.

Like me on facebook at Split Creek Game Breeders and Split Creek Ranch for updates.
