He weighed 165 with guts and went right at 110Ē busted brow.. We have a bunch of deer on the list like him to hopefully remove. We want to lighten the feed bill on about 25 mature under achievers lol

Not much to the story. I had a pretty long home inspection yesterday on a 40 year old house. The report took me a lot longer than normal. From 7 to 8:30 I worked on the lap top then took a little break. Saw the moon would be overhead 9-12 when I glanced at peak activity for the moon. I was on my last inspection item of the report and looked over to see the bucks already in the pen. Put the computer down and double checked he was one of the shooters I was after. I didnít like shooting through the panels but tried to treat it like it wasnít there. He barely made it 40 yards. Weather is pretty warm for a bit but Iím sure Iíll play Indian somewhere before long.

Iím headed to the grass farm. Should see a bunch of deer. I built a micro pen recently and the deer are getting in. I moved my game tamer from my rut pinch to the new spot. Itís killer with cover around the set up in the oak tree. I donít really have a target deer yet. There is a big 8 and a narrow 9 point with long tines and wrapped beams that are maybes. Should be a fun hunt.

The grass farm. A small place around the navasota River. I doubt I hunt Trinity co until something new shows. There is an old 10 thatís is nocturnal around 130. Waiting for something late season.

This one is cattle panels cut in half and it is six 8í sections. Nothing new just using them to keep hogs off the corn. Deer being able to step over them into the pen take just a day or two for them to get use to. These do not work in newton though. Too many hogs, jumpers would be in it every night if you use cut panels.

Yesterday was a disaster. Pulled up to the farm and realized my whole tote of recently washed clothes at home. Busted 5 does on the walk I . Saw about 10 deer and then my wife gets sick and I have to get out of the stand early. Should be able to get in early today.

Lets go Tony. Deer are up on their feet and feeding. Just had 8 does work up my neighbors fence and pop out at my corn feeder to get a bite to eat. Still 7 does bedded in my neighbors pasture with the breeze at their back and 1 small buck working the fence row.

Do you dump your corn on the ground as you are getting in the stand or 1 or 2 days before? I have tried hand corning and getting in my stand or pop-up and when a deer or hogs come in they bust out.

When I was hunting the big deer is was 2-300#ís once a week in the pen.

The grass farm has a ton of oil field traffic so they are used to people. I corn it when I hunt usually or the day before
