I guess it's that time to get the new year kicked off. It's also time to start saying a few prayers for much needed rain for everyone. As usual lets keep this thread useful for anyone needing any help rather its for a new lease or just leanding a hand when needed to keep everyone Safe. Please post up any rain totals in your area and let's try an drop a few pictures from time to time to share the adventures with our fellow hunters. There seems to be a big return going on this yr in Mexico given all the groups looking for ranches. Post up any leads on available ranches if you know of anything good. A big welcome to all of the new hunters this year and good luck to all the groups that's been grinding it out on these past drought seasons we've all shared. Best of luck to everyone and Please be Safe.

Protine question. Who all here feeds Nubam? Been feeding MNA but switching to Nubam. Good bad or ugly. Congratulations to all who shot a trophy this past year. Pray for rain!!

We fed nubam for years. Only swapped to MNA due to price. Why did you stop feeding MNA?

Bo right now Nubam is cheaper. I had some feed tested from MNA and it didn't come back correct. They did give me the price deference in what it cost on that one order. No telling how many tons of protein was put out before that was wrong.

Back below the checkpoint in big deer country this year with awesome brush, good cowboy, lots of deep water, and stands/feeders ready to go. Got a good feeling about ‘23-‘24. Viva!

I'd probably try to make offer based on number of tags YOU need vs trying to do a lease per acre deal. I think Stupid crosses at Acuna.

Iíve been crossing at Acuna for the last 3 years. Itís ok, we have always crossed but sometimes it can be a pain in the neck. We just know going into crossing there that it might take 10 minutes or 1.5 hrs. Once we get through itís smooth sailing all the way to the ranch. The town of Acuna is great as well!

We had dusting issues with Nubam with multiple loads of feed. Just poor quality control on Nubam's part. Keep an eye on it and stay on them if you go that route. We are paying more since moving on, but quality seems to be much better.

I’ve read where this summer and fall it will be turning to El NiŮo. The rains will probably not help this season, but should for next with the wetter winter.
