Looks like we may finally get some Thursday and/or Friday. Our landowner says our ponds are still holding water but the brush & browse really needs a drink. We’re headed down first weekend of April, so here’s hoping it’s greened up by then. Viva!

Our land owner. Ok 1.7, but I was rounding up. Rain envy is to be expected in times like this, I understand.

1.77” 2 nights ago, heading down tomorrow. Maybe last trip for awhile with govt saying don’t travel abroad, I don’t think there’s much to worry about in mex yet. State dept doesn’t have anything on their page.

I wouldn’t chance going at this point. Don’t need to be over there if they decide to close the border. I think it will formally happen any day now.

Apparently the border is closing to all non-essential traffic. I’d be surprised if this changes anytime soon.

Unless you wanted to live at the ranch indefinitely, I wouldn’t be heading across.

Had a good trip. Got 2.5 tons of cotton seed out and a ton of protein. Drizzled pretty much all day Saturday. Muddiest I’ve seen it in a long time.

Hopefully be able to go down in a couple of months. They had plenty of TP down there. No hand sanitizer anywhere, I’m thinking they don’t even have it down there.

Was able to get a bunch of Zithromax though, that’s the antibiotics you need if you get corona. Tried to get plaquenil and qualaquin the others drugs that they’ve had good success with, no such luck though.

We got about 1" on us. 2 rains of 1/2" each the 18-19th. Partner just left there with no problems at the border . No dust. But obviously time for rain to crank up

Taxidermist got our 3 bucks done for pickup today. We are in the PN area, so not down in the red dirt big boy country, but we had a fun 2019 season on year 1 of the new lease. Looking forward to 2020. 1 trophy and 2 mgmt bucks. The wide 9 had a shattered front shoulder, he had lost a ton of weight since the summer and was limping pretty bad, he got arrowed by Stickemhard03. All three were either personal overall bests or personal bow kill bests, so we consider it a successful year.

Appears things have gotten a little complicated for us La. boys with Texas shutting down the border with La. cause last I looked Texas was between La. and Mexico. Our guns are still at ranch and we have till May to check out. Who knows what they may do with international border crossings??? So very glad none of this is taking place in Dec/Jan!!!
