Place is looking great! Interested in the controlled burn, how much area did you burn and did you have to notify anyone?

Thank you! The burn was roughly a 100 acres. I had my neighbor assist the burn. He does it all the time and knows what he's doing. You are supposed to notify the FD. But no one does. I don't believe you are very far from me.. stop by some time.

Completed the burn this past weekend and sprayed food plots. Will be planting memorial weekend. Finished with most of my big projects so far...ready to start to see some antler growth in the up and coming months. Fawns will be dropping first week of June.

Thanks! I will be planting iron clay peas on two plots and sunflowers on another. I will come back and fertilize in about 2 weeks after I plant. How's your new place coming along?

Update on ranch activities. Planted food plots this weekend. Just barely dry enough to plant but got it done. Tractor did get stuck on the last food plot..another story to get that thing out. Took out a big boar Friday night. Fawns are starting to drop. A little earlier than last year.

It's in Pittsburgh county. I bought it 3 years ago. Prices have changed since then. Contact Darton and he could give you a better idea what per acre price is right now.

Update from this past weekend. Fertilized the food plots. Plots are looking pretty good. Baled the hay meadow. Shot another pig and a huge diamond back rattle snake. Had a great weekend. Very hot weekend.

Been slow going on getting the tank drained..between rain and lots of ground water it has been a challenge. But things are taking a turn for the better.

You do good work......Appreciate you letting us follow along.

I bet you could smack some ducks off that 3 acre hole in December.

But the big question is, how's your deer looking?

Thank you. I do appreciate you following along.. it looks to be another banner year for the bucks. I have my eye on 3 different ones to see how they turn out.
