Since this is still a relatively new lease as far as our management goes we are still a little tighter on what and how many deer we shoot.
Short story is, if you will feel like you have to shoot the biggest buck you see every yr to justify the money spent then this probably won't be the place for you.
We feed corn yr round and protein from Jan 1-Sept. We also started feeding cottonseed this year but with all the rain they really haven't taken to it good yet.
We will have a good time at camp, cook good food and enjoy our time with family and friends. That being said, we are there to hunt not party.
We are expecting the ranch owner to start to do some brush control in the next year or two. He uses an excavator to "cherry pick" cedar instead of a bulldozer to clear cut the area. Our property is in bad need of this. It is way too thick in some areas to the point where it is unhuntable.
This is a good property with some excellent potential. It is very diverse in terrain.
We won't take first cash but the best fit. We prefer not to have anyone from the area within a couple hrs unless we already know the person. We have found in the past that it is better for all involved if everyone is from 2-3 hrs away. Just our choice not the landowners.
Money is split 1/2 now normally March 1($1125+$350 Protein+electric), then 1/2($1125) Aug 1.
