Welp.. been down and out since Thanksgiving with surgery on both feet. If you ever have to get your feet worked on, I HIGHLY recommend doing both at the same time because this would have been annoying as hell to be down for 6 months instead of 3.. lol.. BUT..

Moving around well...can't run my butt off, but I can at least fill feeders and work like I want to, for the most part.. so.. it's to the ranch and work!

I have a 8x8 stand that I am going to finish out this weekend with paneling and some shelves. I picked up some 2x12x8's and plan to put shelves up high and at the windows.

Then, time to swap out a water heater that went out, but luckily I keep spare water heaters wink Hoping to fix the current one and then use it as a spare, but they are only a couple hundred max so who cares.

Then, new power supply. We added a 34ft antenna to the cabin last year and then a couple months ago a friend added a really nice live camera to the top of it but it is a power hog and needs a little more power to operate, so doing that.

Oh.. and we are coming up on our 5yr Ranchiversary (lol) so prepping the place for a big shin-dig with the inlaws etc.

Pitch and Erath... soon as we get past that, let's schedule some axis and hog hunting wink

Okay.. just had to ramble a bit guys as I am just waking up.. now, on to more deer hunting stories wink

Oh, for your viewing pleasure...

Nope.. had 2 of them crossing the ranch. They did not mess with a single rock on the place.
