If there was a year for splits, kickers, etc this should be it. Getting some age on the herd and a lot of groceries available. Weíre starting to see some with what looks like starting split brows or brows with kickers etc.

Late, but want to say THANKS for the replies for rain totals in the Robert Lee area!! I'm having some health issues in my "old age" that just seems to (FU) my best intentions day to day.

Hell, off point, but I retired, quit smoking, quit the bourbon and now my health has gone to poop the last few months? Always lived hard and played hard for a lot of years but just love the area. Appreciate the responses when I ask.....Kuma

Plant of the week is what I call purple horse mint some call it bee balm. This is a purple variation of a lemon mint type plant. Not a preferred plant for deer but will be consumed when numbers are getting over populated. Seeing big stands of this plant is one indicator you are under carrying capacity for present conditions (of course not the only indicator by any means). I have seen places where most of the leaves have been eaten off of these.

Protein consumption sure picked up this past week compared to what it has been. Iím sure does having fawns and bucks growing will increase the demand. Definitely on track for the cheapest feed bill in the 7 years Iíve been out there. I saw 3 fawns today they are hitting the ground.

We normally go from the 17 to their BC23 in March. This year as good as itís been I think weíll stick with the 17 and make it on through and spend less.

I like palmers better when Iím in town. When we buy pallets we buy there. The feed store in sterling city only carries angelo pellets so if just want a few bags I donít normally go to town.
