We got 0.82-in of rain this morning. Weíve gotten 1.95in since we broadcasted the winter wheat last month. Hopefully we will see some green growing in the field over Thanksgiving.

I always like it when we get more than we were expecting! Neighbor had 0.6”, hoping we got the same!
Once you get some sunny days I bet you’ll have some green!

We are just a few miles north of you and the coyotes have been bad the last few years and are getting worse fast.. We will be after them hard from here on out.. I can remember years ago when we never heard one or saw one, not even tracks.

Unfortunately, we didnít get much runoff. We really need to get 2+in to see a lot of runoff out there especially with how dry itís been. Hopefully the field will be nice and green next week for our big hunt.

Our estimate is right around 155, but it's hard to tell. My twin brother shot a buck that scored around 157 off our place and this guy looks very similar but has a lot more mass. We are really hoping we shoot all 21 deer this fall to allow him to have more access to food and hoping we get a normal rainfall year so he can add a little more to his frame next season. Fingers crossed!

This is the first time weíve ever seen a deer caught in a hog panel. I saw on one of our cellular game cameras this morning that a doe was hung up. I never thought that a deer could get hung up in a hog panel. I hate seeing this but Iím glad we were able to end her suffering before the coyotes got to her. Just wanted to pass this along and share that deer do in fact get hung up in hog panels. Have a good one!

My nephew was able to shoot his first deer today as well. He ended up having 20 points and was a 7yr old this year. He dressed out at 140lbs. He was a toad!

Going to try to shoot 2 or 3 more doe and another cull buck over the next 2 days.

Thanks for all of y’all’s kind words! We showed our boys our first bucks and they were amazed at difference in sizes. They both really enjoy the outdoors and working on projects out here so they understand all the effort that goes into it.

Now it’s time to shoot some doe and get our numbers down. We will hunt some other cull bucks later this year. Good luck to everyone!

My twin brothers niece was able to shoot her first buck as well. This was a buck on our hit list due to his short brow tines. He ended up dressing out at 148lbsÖ.huge body!


We ended up shooting 4 bucks and 3 doe this past week. Hoping to shoot 6 to 7 more doe and three more cull bucks between December through February.

We put out a lot of rice bran, alfalfa, and filled up a cottonseed feeder. All of our corn feeders are running right now but we like to keep our two Krivoman timed protein feeders running this time of year along with having at least one of the cottonseed feeders full. We typically donít need to have all of this but we didnít see any acorns on the ground this year and thereís very few forbs and browse available. Hopefully we get the 1.5in of rain they have forecasted for tomorrow and Saturday. I wish I would have broadcasted more winter wheat out into our bigger fields but just didnít have much time with all of the hunting we did.

We had these Mexican White Oaks planted two years ago and they have done well until this fall when a buck decided to make a rub on all 5 of them. Any ideas on what we should do to prevent these from dying? I wasnít sure if there was some type of protective wrap we should use or not. We would like do try and save these trees so please let me know if you have any ideas.

Default Constant Level Pond

We have decided to pull the trigger and drill another water well to help keep our large pond full. Our large pond, when full, is around 2 to 2.5 acres in size but the drought this year has caused the water to drop drastically. We have to drill down far enough and use a 6-inch pipe in order to get the gallons per minute we need to fill this pond and keep it full. The large pond is very deep and has never gone completely dry, even during the 2011 drought. When it's full, it is around 25ft deep. This kind of depth doesn't make it a great pond for fishing but if we can keep the water level constant then we can provide structure for the forage fish in the 3ft to 12ft depth spots and try to grow some trophy bass. We will be removing all of the current structure and looking at adding new structure so please let us know if any of you have any ideas on what structure to use or if you have any experience with this.

Our goal is to hopefully have the water well drilled in February/March. We will have a dozer come out to make a path for the water line along with clearing some other cedars. Once the water line is in place and pumping, my brothers, dad, and I will be building our own fishing dock. I'll be sure to include pictures and updates as we go through this process.

We are planning on broadcasting Turner Seed's Forb Mix in all of the areas that we doze this year to help increase the number of quality forbs. I've broadcasted native forb/grass mixes in the past and they have done extremely well but now we want to focus more on forb growth that will benefit deer, turkey, and quail.
