One of our members went out to feed two weeks ago. Said everything was green and the grass was higher than he's ever seen it. We HAD a pretty good size tree in front of the camp house. It wither got struck by lightning or wind broke it about 3 feet off the ground.

They've had a lot of rain over there and several large washes we had are even larger now. Last years flood made the creek bed at least 20 feet wider in one spot and washed out our crossing point at another creek bed. Another member may have to take his skid steer out to fix some of those spots.

I'm going to try and make it out the weekend of the 22nd. I haven't been since the end of February an my trigger finger is killing me. I've got 3 cameras I need to check on as well.

Just got back from Dryden. We filled feeders, cleaned our senderos, and started to set up for bow season. It is hot out there y'all. Make sure you stay hydrated when you're out working. Also, bees are out and about looking for water, so make sure you don't leave any open containers with liquids at camp. We made that mistake on Saturday and when we came back for lunch to camp, it was swarming with bees.

Default Headed out....

this Friday and coming back Sunday. I'm hauling 30 bags of corn (half my required 60), my mule and a load of firewood for the camp house. It's gonna be a hot one, but hopefully I can get over to the next door lease and go to the Pecos River. I'm feeding and checking cameras and hopefully we can get on a few hogs. The guys that fed at the last of May saw some big ones, but were only there to feed.

It looks like it will be about 5 degrees cooler. That means it will only be 108 at the camp house instead of the 113 I saw last year in June.

We went out last Monday. Have never seen so much grass and green growth in Terrell County and on our place. Deer have a ton to eat naturally. Protein consumption is slow, but still steady. Didn't retrieve my cam this trip, but bro had some good pics show up of potential hit-listers. We wont get too excited until we go back and check the cams in September. Should be a great year for antlers for sure....

I made it out to my lease near Dryden. Dry out that way. There is a new AT&T cell tower up and I got great AT&T service. Bad new seems to have effected the Verizon signal. I could get my Coverts to eventually get a signal and they would send a few pictures then nothing. They had been working fine. Same way with my Verizon phone. I am going back pretty shortly so I will take my Covert AT&T camera and see how it does. Had about a 6 foot long snake skin in the RV and another one hanging out the floor a/c vent. Non venomous type. I guess they wintered up in there. Will moth balls keep em out? Saw a few deer but mostly quiet out there.

I'm planning on heading out the last weekend of the month. I'm anxious to hear your report about that cell tower as well.

Hey guys just joined tbh because of this thread. Iíve been lurking around the forum for years, just never thought I had much to contribute. Me and a couple of partners own 1360 acres south of Dryden near the river. Weíve been feeding corn year round since 2002. Hunting has been tough since the drought, and we havenít killed but one deer in the last five years. Just got back from there last week, north of Dryden had some rain the evening before and there was some puddles in the rd. South of Dryden was extremely dry. Iíll post some pictures if I get some good ones.

Where exactly is the tower? I'm anxious to get out there and see what kind of signal I get. We hunt about 25 miles north of Pumpville, so I'm not sure how much good it will do us.

Ok, we're about 20 miles east of 349 off Old Pumpville Road. That Tower should help us, but not sure how much at this point. The other closest tower was around Sheffield/I-10 area and I was lucky to get 2 bars of service on top of the mountain.

I shot a whitetail doe last night. This morning has been a parade of young mule deer bucks. A couple 7 points, couple sixes and 2 spikes. All young. Some still in velvet

We are having an unusual hunt. We normally shoot 90% mule deer. But this week we are 3 for 3 whitetail. Never done that before. Buddy shot a 10 point. First buck with a bow. Good times with great friends

Geezus ya'll are making me jealous! On top of that, the Constable in the office across the hall from me keeps showing me pics of pigs he's killed. I haven't spent nearly enough time at the lease this year. I made it out the last of June to feed and pulled cards and that's it. I saw some good bucks driving around, but only had pigs on camera. Every weekend until the second weekend of gun season is booked with work. I'm gonna explode!!!!

Very nice! We saw one like that, but he wouldnít come out. He didnít get that big by being stupid.
We saw bunches of real young bucks, we gave them a pass. Hopefully, the neighbors give them a pass. Looks like it is going to be a good year

Some of our lease members were out filling feeders the last week of September and said they saw some good bucks. I can't wait to get out there.
