Default Lease Flooded Pics

Got some heart sinking pics from the game cam at my Refugio county lease when I woke up for night shift. Have about $100 in corn/soybean that will be lost, the feeder in the pic that will need repairs and a pull behind brush mower that will also need repairs because they are sitting under water right now. Hopefully thatís the extent of the damage. Iím glad I picked up my echo trimmer and chainsaw last time out.

"djc" on here has some great flood pics from 2005, of the cam as it goes underwater. It's sad for the loss of gear. But something you don't get every day either. Or you shouldn't, unless your just in the wrong place.


That is cool that you got a pic of the whistler though.

Had a couple ducks swimming under my feeder in Jim Wells. Glad it's still low enough they're under and not with it

Been there, done that.
Lost 3 feeders one year. Me and my brother had just dumped 300 lbs in one of them the week before. Just to let you know how high it got, all my feeders are winch up. To the bottom of the timer box is right at six foot. To the top of the container is around 12 foot. All 300 lbs was soaking wet when we finally got to it. Lost count of all the cameras I lost. But our place is in a river bottom, where itís prone to flood, but I place my feeders on high points and still lose some timers every now and then. I try to take my cameras out when the river is up and more rain is expected, but hardly ever works out that way.

As far as the mower goes
Drain the oil and pull the plug
Crank it over to spit out the water so u don't hydrolock n bend a rod
Get it started w carb cleaner or starting fluid and run it hard and hot after new oil is in

We had this happen a few years back to a leases member and he had both protein and corn feeders completely under water. There were pictures of raccoons swimming and diving down for feederÖ Geico should of used that for a commercial.

Sorry for your troubles pal.

Send that to Tactacam.

They had a sweepstakes earlier this year giving away free yearly unlimited packages for user submitted pics. I won one of them. They'd probably love an underwater pic.

Sorry you are having this happen, that is a lot of water in a short time. Some good advice here about getting things back going and running when you are able. Good luck.

So I am going to guess you are near a river or a creek? That's a lot of water, and typical of that flat area, the water does not drain off quickly. That is going to suck, not going to be any fun, when you can finally get back in there and start trying to fix all the problems.

Happened to my FIL. His feeder was the EZ feeder from Bucees. Even his camera went under water. After the water went down the camera started taking pics again. He had to replace the timer in the feeder and it was back to work.
