The boys at the lease called in, they're muddy and wet. No deer seen, one bobcat down. Buddy's new 4x4 stuck 50 yards beyond my feeder. Look at the road behind my feeder. That's the high end of a long gentle slope so the farther you go, the deeper it gets.



He's driving his new 4x4 and thought it could walk on water I guess. I won't take the gator past my feeder when the road is covered like it is today. This is old pic but today this is how it looks in Throckmorton.

He asked me to haul my tractor out there and pull him out. Regretfully my trailer is parked out back in what is now standing water.

What's that we always say about the difference between 2wd and 4wd?

Is there anybody out there that can help him? Five miles east of town. He is trying a chain come along but there aren't many big trees out there to pull against.

4x4 only means you get further off the main road before you get stuck roflmao

Yep. Four wheel drive gets you stuck farther off the road. Wish him luck For me.

4wd either gets you stuck twice as good or twice as fast.

Yep, when a 4x4 gets stuck he is stuck. Gonna be a rutted mess to repair when it does dry out.

cheers Part of hunting... Son & i packed up ta head ta a WMA for a hunt... Hit town, could smelll brakes locked up on the Ram... Pulled inta gas station, banged on brakes, & got em free'd... Looked at son, could tell he was wanten ta still go just like me... Not looken good, asked if he still wanted ta go, twas before cell phones, he said yah, told him don't tell your mom... At WMA hit trail with standing water, started going threw, felt tires slip a little, so stopped, worried about brakes locking up again... We grabbed rifles, & hunted till close ta noon... Got help getting pulled out, couldn't even tell some one got stuck... If brakes wouldn't have up earlier, would have thrown in reversing, think could have gotten out, twas more slipping than stuck... Few weeks they'll laugh bout it.... Stay Safe... flag

yeah we packed up and came home - no way to get around our lease - nasty nasty mud and we are all in polaris, mules, etc. Sometimes you just plan to come back another day

Hundred yards further and 2 feet deeper is what Dad said when I bought my 1st 4WD. He was right.

Always get the tow insurance as long as you aren't trying to get stuck they will pull you out best few dollars per month I spend.

Put a winch on it and you can get even "stucker" further back in when you try to go places you have no business going to in the first place. I learned a long time ago it is easier to just walk in the last little bit than it is to dig the truck out after pushing it too far!
