Looking good Bobby. Have you gotten any rain lately? Struggling on the west side. I would make the guy haul that old culvert off, but I am OCD. I would think it would be more of headache to cut up, transport and sale? To each his own though....JMHO

Little rain here and there. Not much. Creeks are low.

That investment should be well worth it. Not a sexy way to spend hard earned money but it will surely enhance your enjoyment.

Good pics. Thanks for sharing.

Culvert job turned out better than I was hoping. Very happy with it. was able to get my tractor to the back of the property today and do some Mowing and clearing that I've been putting off for over 2 years.

Wife told me, you haven't killed a deer at our place since we bought it. What's the problem? I told her I wasn't that mad at them. She told me I was converting to a vegetarian. That ticked me off so I fought the skeeters this weekend and killed what I thought was a doe. It was a nubbin. I don't care. It was fun. Deer were spooky and he did a matrix move at the shot. Somehow a broadside shot turned into entry near the spine and exit through the stomach. Sounded like a paddle hitting the water (thump/splash/ripe watermelon sound). He ran behind me and I thought I heard flopping.

Checked the arrow and it had green on it. Yuk. Didn't see blood anywhere. Went back to camp and piddled around for an hour and got Daisy the Catahoula. When she saw her yellow tracking leash she **** near peed herself (no humping involved).

We took a long nature walk to get to the back of the property and she had her nose popping the whole way. Got to the back stand and she smelled the nasty arrow and looked at me like I was crazy. I told her to "get the deer". And she was off. 50/60 yard track down a trail behind my quadpod and then she threw on the brakes and made a 90 into the woods. Deer was DRT. Very proud of my girl. I backtracked and couldn't find any blood or stomach matter.

Deer was about the size of a mature jackrabbit. Cooked up ALL of the backstrap and it will only make about 2 meals and a lunch.

But I finally broke the curse of not shooting a deer (only hogs) on my property. Maybe things will come together for a nice buck.

Got to finally open up the box that had my ForEverLast skinning rack. It worked great for skinning the rabbit.

Nice and tender. I would take exception to being called a vegetarian myself. Good job for you and Daisy.

Congrats on the first deer blood.
I've had a deer do the same matrix move before- bh went in the bottom of rib cage and came out next to the spine. Made for an interesting trail as well.

You have quite an assortment of potential "freeaks".


The second and third pic in post 1134, that buck has a black streak from it's eyes and down it's nose. Gonna be an interesting deer in a few years.
