    Seemed like no better time than now to renovate the pond without having to break the dam.

    Nice place you have, and a nice shop to work in! One of my ponds looks just like yours, and will probably get cleaned out this year if it stays dry.

    I've posted this before, but I have a thread to put it now. :D Biggest 4 point shed we've ever found. It is one inch bigger than the match. Very close to a gross Boone & Crockett 8 point.

    That shop looks awesome. You guys did some great work. Now you need to get a shot at the buck that dropped that shed. Nice update.

    Got the plots put in last Saturday. Got 1/4” of rain as the last seeds hit the ground. Spread 50 lb. of 11-52-0 and urea as per the soil test. Worked that in with the springtooth. Spread 50 lb. of oats and worked that in shallow with the springtooth as well. Ran all that over with the cultipacker before spreading a mix of turnip, radish, kale, rape, chickory, and red and white clover. Cultipacked half of that in and got rained out. I put up 2 exclusion cages for fun. Just over an acre. Now we pray for rain. Already dodged one today...

    Got a few pictures of the boys. This is a piece I hunt a mile North of the house. Very few cattle in the area with lots of ag, so I created a mineral site. Seems to be working just right!

    50 lbs of mineral, 25 lbs of fine stock salt, a coffee can of dicalcium phosphate, and drizzled with liquid molasses. Had the camera set to take 3 pics with a 5 minute delay. It took 2200 pics in a month. They have hammered it. All does until that first buck pic on 7/29. Created the site on 7/1.
