This is year 3 of supplemental feeding for us.

Looking back at pics of what we started with vs what we have now as far as numbers and size/health is dramatic.

I went out Friday and our neighbor got 3.5 inches out of the rain earlier this week. His daughter two miles north of us got 4.5 inches. This is west of Hext and south of Hwy, 29.

Lots of rain fell a week and a half ago. About 7.5" in town and at least 2" everywhere else that I am aware of. It was the best rain that we have had in some time and we are about ready for a follow up.
Adios,
Gary

Manager,
We are low fenced and have a roaming Axis herd.
Our Axis don't come to the corn very much or only stop by for a bite or two. Looks like yours are hitting the protein pretty good, but do they come when it is just corn?
Looking for tips to bring them in more. I have also tried Alfalfa bales without much success.

Also are those timed demand style feeders?

Ours live by the water. Lots of them everyday come to drink.

Not ours.
Ours are more elusive and skittish than the whitetails. Snap a twig and they are gone.

Anybody got a dove report ? We're southwest of town, off of Ellis Road. Our dove shooting usually consists of evening shoots around the water troughs. I didn't get to go last year due to the hurricane and ensuing rains dumping 3.5 feet of water into our house. Hoping for a much better Labor Day weekend this year !

We just picked up a lease between Menard and Junction on 2291. We bought a flat antenna from Best Buy but couldn’t pick up any local channels. Has anyone had luck with a regular antenna just to pick up the main channels?
