I have a little over a month of season left, but will only take three or so more deer.

I have to figure out something with dang cows. I am so tired of somes laughing at my anguish. I have four pens at two locations and only plan to continue feeding protein at two of them. I have looked at electric, an outer barb wire fence and panels from Lometa. Right now my T-posts are every 8 feet. I am going to put additional T-posts in to make them every 4 feet and will stretch wire tight with the possibility of adding a second line of gaucho.

Upgrading my living quarters. The old 10x30 job trailer is likely being sold at an extremely good price to a friend's son who will use it on their place straddling the Frio near Derby. A 1st time lease hunter, he will use it to introduce his kids to the joys of the hunting community and I couldn't be happier for him.

The 10x40 two bedroom trailer with, get this, central heat and air, has been recently gutted to the studs and completely remodeled. Some guy brought it to the lease and completely redid it with the hopes his wife would come more. That never happened, but he did buy a place below Big a Wells and sold it to me for, basically, the cost of the renovation. I am giddy. High cotton comes to mind. The exterior walls will need paint and I plan to cool roof the rolled metal roof. Gonna get Crisp to bring in a couple of loads of white rock and spread it out.

The 10x12 bunkhouse on skids is going to Rio Frio and will serve as additional BR space. That'll be the easiest of it all.

Oh yeah, after the pens are fortified and cow proofed, I will start feeeding.

The deer hunters where I quail hunt are having holy heck with a new herd of jumping cattle. They have wrecked 14 feed pens. Needless to say, they aren’t happy.
I broke down today and splurged for a couple sacks of milo to dribble down the road. The quail are lacking groceries.

I honestly would just go to TSC and get the 15 mile DC fence charger. I believe it is about $100 or so.
Get a good deep cycle battery and a good solar panel and be done with it.

Hell, if there is one thing they will respect it is a hot wire. Mine will not go near it and even when I leave the hot wire gap down behind the house 2 or 3 days they will walk right up to it and will not cross into the back yard!


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!
