As some may have noticed, I haven't been around as much lately as usual (or at least posting) or as much as I would have liked. With the rains, storms, and time of year, work has kept me running from sun up to well past sun down. I did manage to sneak away for a West Texas Holiday and spent last weekend with the family at the lake house. Hope you enjoy the pictures cheers

First weekend get away was for the West Texas Holiday. I haven't had a chance to get out to the ranch for the last 4 months and was itching to see what condition it was in. We haven't had the rains that most the state has seen, but have had more than we are used too. The grass looks great, pastures are in good shape and the deer that I saw look healthy. Should be a great upcoming season.

Spent the weekend by myself for the most part. Drove around and checked the tanks, checked some of the stands and had to locate a new bow blind location for one of our new spots. Stopped by the ranch house for a bit and talked to my old roommate and overall, had a great weekend.

I lost count of the horny toads that I came across and got one blurry picture. It is great to see them making a comeback.

Few more pictures from the trip...

Managed to take a little time and catch a few bass out of the tanks. Also caught site of our "unicorn", the one horned blackbuck that was one of the first to show up on the ranch. We were trying to remember how old he is, but at best guess, he is around 13 years old or so.

And couldn't pass up the chance to snap a few pictures of the Power Wagon. We have had some good times in that old beast grin

For Father's Day Weekend, I went to Oklahoma and picked up the kids to take them to the lake house for our annual crawfish/crab boil. Was great to have the entire family there. Good food, good company and a great time. Most of the family left for Saturday night, so we just sat on the dock with my sister, BIL, pops and the kids...little man would get a little excited when we would catch a fish rofl

did the same few weekends ago - by myself on 9000 acres - every once in awhile that is fun to do. Tried to fish but our tanks are so full that they are up to the high grass line so to get close enough to the water you have to go through waist high - even with snake boots that makes me jiggy. May head back this weekend to do camp work - even though our camp site is all gravel the grass and weeds come up bad so I need to cut all that stuff back

Great pics and looks like a good time
