Default Bow Season is coming...

With all of the crazy threads posted, I figured we could all dial in some focus on what really matters. It will be bow season again in 6 months!

Have you started feeding?

Working on projects?

Are you behind on getting started, or not worried about filling your feeder until Labor Day?

I have 2 new leases to get set up on personally. Labor abounds

I never stop feeding so that's on going.

Need to get out there and shread. Spray some weeds around camp.

Also need to build some stand platforms here at the house during lockdown to take out next trip for some stands we are moving.

I'm always behind because there is always something else I want to do!

I never stop feeding, or working on getting ready to hunt.

I went to my Eldorado lease two weeks ago and went to my Del Rio lease this past weekend. Next weekend I will be filling feeders at my Votaw lease.

I need to build a platform also. Got any plans in mind? Iím not looking for a very tall one. Maybe 3-4, off the ground.

The only reason I quit feeding is because I am between leases. With a newborn at home it’s been tough getting out and setup.

I’m building some new Victory RIP TKO’s tonight. Final product should have a 20% FOC. Other than that, waiting on the tractor to get out of the shop so I can go mow and spray and get ready to plant. Shooting just about every day. Can’t get here soon enough.

I usually don’t between April -July. Throw off feeding patterns. I would end up feeding 10 javelinas all year long. I like to think I’m starting over. New animals.

I’ll start up again probably last week of August.

It will absolutely be October 3. And my guess is that youíre an idiot.

What area is your Del Rio lease at? We have been getting some nice rains in the area. Unfortunately, it has not been wide spread rains but something is better than nothing.
