Lex, Kristi, Katelyn, Levi, and another baby due in late April are moving back to Texas.  Pictured here by a Thanksgiving fire at the ranch.

This Bobcat caught slipping away from this feeding area is probably looking for a rabbit, rat, mouse, or bird attracted to the feed.

Men from Mississippi can shoot too!

This deer was downed with a well placed shot to the neck. The deer's name was "Sin Cahones".

Bucks still in groups

I'm betting this latest cold front will have them splitting up and marking their territories.

Another good deer taken...

Tall and wide, six on the right and four on the left side of this deer's rack.

First hunt of the year, success.

Hunter, Conrad, travels all the way from Washington State to get his South Texas deer.  He made a fine shot from about 250 yards.

Oat planting time...

The oats are in.  All we need now is some soaking rain.  The fall oats give the deer something green to eat when the cold weather sets in.

They all don't make it.

My guess is that predators got this one.  Probably coyotes attracted to the blood smell of scraping the velvet off his antlers. This one looks to be a three year old buck.

It's that time of year once again...

Deer are starting to "scrape out".  Pictured is one buck that has just completed rubing the "velvet" off of his antlers and another that hasn't started yet.

Fawns catch on quick...

Fawns come to feed with their mothers and soon they are sticking their noses into the feed too.
