A Whitetail deer operation. ( 16548 )

 Once you build a high fence you then have to understand that you need to provide for all animals inside that cannot exit.  In our South Texas water is one of the first things you must see that  is provided.  Besides constructing earthen ponds you need to have a emergency supply also.
 This water trough is constructed so that the float mechanism cannot be disturbed.
 Cool water is also enjoyed by the family dog.
Two types of supplemental feed troughs are seen in this photo a metal trough that is covered and also in the distant a gravity drop protein feeder.
 Senderos are tilled anually and seeded for supplemental grazing of cool weather oats, clover, and trunips.
 Predator control is also necessary, not to eleminate all predators but to control the numbers.
 Periodic controlled burns can help too.
Here a food plot is being disced not only to control brush but also to provide a seedbed for planting.  It also encourages weed growth which provide tender browse.
