I have actually seen 3-4 rios over the past 10 years (I assume from illegal stocking efforts by locals), but have yet to see an eastern. We have a spring fed creek that runs thru our place, and it is good turkey habitat, but no birds yet.

Got about 2.5 hrs on the machine yesterday and still have a ways to go. I still haven't seen the back 2/3 of my property. A thick creek bed prevents travel right now.
Hoping to get some help from a hydro mulcher soon to cut me a path thru the heavy timber.

The biologists released those easterns with metal leg bands that would clink together when they walked, was like a dinner bell for coyotes/bobcats

Got some more area cleared out and it seems to be helping.
My population has tripled in the last 2 days

Another area I cleared out today

Lot of potential in that area. Before they fenced off the area behind the dam at Navarro Mills, we used to hike the creek and fish the deeper pools for Crappie . I found a shed that had bases as big as coke can. Also there may be a thread somewhere here on this site about a huge buck shot a few years ago, but I couldn't find it. If you want to google check out:


See Texas Big Game Awards website for 2010-11, #1 buck in Navarro county. Shot by lady landowner on her 432 acre property between Navarro Mills and Blooming Grove. It was a biggun , Grossing 202 points and so big they had trouble lifting it high enough to weigh.

Thanks Jeff, it has been fun so far. Not high numbers of deer but so good ones in the area. Def gonna kill some pigs soon as we get the blind in place.

Haven't done much the last month except more shredding. It's been so terribly hot out there and been busy. Got a blind built and set it up this last weekend.
7'x7' insulated and lined with black carpet inside. Should be enough room for full family hunts.
Pigs have really moved in but have seen a few more deer also.
I got my little tractor sold and about to close the deal on a new one and will be doing some plowing getting ready for some food plots.
Hoping the weather cools so I can start spending some more time out there without worrying about heat stroke.

Also have a 45' high cube shipping container dropped this week to get the camp started. Should have electric and water set up by next week.

That picture does absolutely no justice for that deer. I personally saw that deer a handful of times spotlighting for yotes at night. He was a giant and only a handful of people knew about him while he was alive.
