After I got finished with the entrance, the container guy showed up to get this thing on its way to someone else! With this removal that leaves just one more load for us to take care of Man, this guy sure was a pack rat!

Testing some unedited drone footage. I will be putting a movie style film together with all of the drone footage soon but wanted to get some unedited clips on here to show the progress.

This is the start of the pad site for the new 1500 square foot shop

This morning I headed back to Coal Creek to finish up a few projects! I love going to this place, only problem is now we have all the projects done until the water meter and electric company put in the power. I was really excited to see how the Laredo Soybeans were coming along. When I pulled up I was really surprised how well they have taken off! Decided to clear out another fence row/road. Also I worked on finishing up the shop site.

The water meter and power poles have been set! Now we have to drop our own pole for the meter and run the water from the water meter to the proposed shop site! After that its just running power to the shop and wiring it up to stamp this project complete

Well that's just a good looking sight right there. I can almost hear that transformer buzzing, waiting to give life to future memories made. At some point, power will flow from the street, up that drive and into the bulb that will give light to the field dressing and caping of a 160+" buck. And then the lucky landowner will walk over to his/her field sink and turn the faucet on for county water to wash the blood off of his/her knife and hands. That lucky person will stand there, looking 10 yards away at their kids sitting around a camp fire, roasting marshmallows and giggling at every little thing. It all started with an idea, and then a plan, and then clean up, and then a power pole, and a water meter, and then.....

I would say that this is really a long-time coming, but that is what "impatience with really great things" makes you think, because it has only been a couple of months from start to finish. Super excited and ready for the next project. The new owner of Coal Creek is buying a real gem!

As you well know, you do not need a huge ranch to killed BIG deer in the Sooner state

The heavy non-typical looks to be as old as the hills he lives in. A grey body even in his summer coat. He may just be a Boone and Crocket non-typical, and that is just the bachelor group that showed up first. Love the way the 10 point is posed just like the Browning logo just beneath him! The new owner may be winning some big buck contests this year...
