Got on 1500 acres lease between George West and Freer. This camper was left by the heirs of a former member who has passed on. It will now serve as my camp house. Needed lots of cleaning, a few bug bombs and a lot of electrical repairs. I got the electric gremlins worked out though. A/C, fridge and microwave all work perfectly. Saw lots of wildlife to include deer, turkey, quail, dove, javelina, hogs and yotes....oh, and rattlesnakes. Including one rattler that crawled up on top of a feeder motor, presumably to catch birds. Stands and feeders are set. Now ready for the season to kick off.

That's what deer camp is suppose to look like. All you need is some shade, a grill, and a place to sleep.

Yep, looks like deer camp, just missing a nice little lean-to to keep your self out of the elements and don't forget mice traps/bait.

Gonna build a covered "patio" between the camper and the mesquite tree. The camper will block that north wind and the tin roof will keep every dry.

When we got our place down south we slept in a tent, bed of the truck, or on a 16-foot flatbed for about 4 years. I appreciate the a/c and heat, but sure do miss looking up at them stars!

Good luck this season

Good to have a camp. Place to kick up your feet and stay out of the weather.

Shoot man you got all of the fundamentals you need to live large. You have a smoker, grill, trailer to sleep in and a water tap and hose, if you have running water you rock up More shade is all you need buddy!

Looking Good!! I travel through there pretty often. There is some good looking and diverse brush in some areas of that stretch of road but water can be scarce. I've seen lot's of rattlesnakes down there but on top of the feeder motor is a new one...better really watch your step.
How far out of Freer are you?
