You reap what you sow! And it looks to me like you are doing one heck of a good job of sowing. Heck of a buck there, he will have several more inches of antler next season.
Skullduggery!Spring is about gone and I failed to bag a turkey this year. I was lucky enough to hunt in MO, AR and TX and did get to see and call in some birds. The experience was very good and I'll remember those hunts for a long time. Next year I'll have better luck!
The rains have been a plenty in April and May and the clover has done well. The task now will be to keep the weeds in check and keep it watered as the summer heat moves in.

In early spring the deer were feeding mostly on new growth brows and the corn and protein consumption dropped off. As the clover matured in March and the fresh growth dwindled the deer returned to the corn, protein and clover. They like it.....

And at the same time the local pig population has been booming.

I've been able to put down 8 since Feb. and another 4 have been taken by family so were putting pork in the freezer. I do enjoy hunting pigs and they don't seem to negatively impact the deer population so I'm going to continue to enjoy it while I can.

Not yet HT but I'm sure the day will come when I stretch the distance. I plan to move this feeder about 10 yards in an effort to put some distance between it and the ground blind. 30 yards is still pretty close shooting off a tripod so I hope to keep the streak going.Have you missed on a pig yet with this method? If not then I see no reason not to unless a wall hanger.
