Short story is my wife and I got on the lease her grandfather was on for around 40 years. He hadn't hunted one of the stands in around 15 years and the other in 8-9...and I'm using 'hunted' lightly. I don't think even 8-9 years ago he was hunting but he had put corn down. 2 stands with 5 total lanes in east Texas. The absolutely wonderful folks at the lease helped brush hog the 12 foot tall lanes just a little over a month ago. Put out around 1500# of corn, mostly into 2 gravity feeders that were out there but did rebuild a couple of feeders. Got cameras up a couple weeks ago and started seeing some great stuff really quickly! It is an MLD so we started rifle a couple weekends back and already got me a nice doe. Wasted a quarter blowing her shoulder out...but didn't have to track her far LOL. We're supposed to knock out a doe tag before bucks so I cashed in my tag on a medium doe before the rut comes in. Leaving the big doe hoping some big studs come chasing them

Some pics from the last 2 weeks. There are tons of doe hitting the one feeder every morning, plus a couple of real young bucks. The other bucks I've seen I'm figuring are around 3. Gonna give them another year. A few times I had a chance for a two'fer deal as well, including opening morning. Exciting to have such great activity the first year managing these lanes!

Always potential for an East TX hammer to walk out. Enjoy the season.
