None. We have been kind of busy and it has been a while since I have had the opportunity.

Just need a corral! Get them used to coming in for feed and have a remote gate closer and pen them up.

It is easy for us guys that don't have problems with them to give advice! laugh

We had the electrofishing survey done over the weekend.

Will be interesting to see the data.

Another big sow down. 200 yards placed right behind the ear. DRT. Doesn't get much better than that. Regret I did not get a video of it. I am still impressed with this 18Ē IWT 6.8SPC and IR Hunter Mark III 60mm.

Best laid plans last week.......

A friend and I were going to do some load development work for one of my rifles at the shooting range below the spillway but it was underwater. The weather was bitterly cold too. So that was a bust.

Shooting range under water. Pond releasing lots of water.

Nice hog! Keep up the good work.

That's a lot of water. Are you getting a good flushing?

Lance nice hog! It's crazy the rain we are getting....when I got to my place on Sunday the top of my fixed dock was missing. WTH? We could not find it. We assumed it might have came loose and sunk. After more searching we found the Trex dock walkway floating in shallow water at the other end of the pond. It was obvious that sometime last week the pond water came over my fixed dock. Partly my fault because I told the dock builder I wanted the dock as close to the water surface as possible and didn't care if it got submerged ever few years. I guess once the dock was submerged it popped the attachments holding it to the braces which he now admits were "not heavy duty" attachments. We'll try to re-attach this coming Saturday. Supposed to be sunny and 61, but will be cold in that water...lol

He says he can do it....but that thing once we get it back over there is going to be heavy as hell out in the cold water. He says he has a "trick" that will do it. We'll see.

Well, I donít know where he was during the electro-fishing survey back in the fall........but he sure was AWOL.

7.2#ís which I guess isnít bad for a farm pond. Still trying to break 8#ís though.

If he has, or he can rent airbags that can be inflated under the dock and hoist it up to a higher elevation float it over its posts and let the air out of the bags lowering it to the top of the posts to be fastened back down.
