I slipped out to Bull Creek Ranch to add some corn to one of the feeders I had left out there. I should have pulled it instead of just leaving it hang empty for so long…when I opened the feeder motor compartment, Bull Ants went  e v e r y w h e r e ! There must have been a couple hundred of them.  Got it topped off with corn and operating so I should have hog harvest video to post soon.

The cooling afternoon showers make this prime time for some evening hog hunting. I drove up on a brown shoat rooting up some St. Augustine grass on the edge of the hammock on the way in. He was a little small to shoot, guess he was about 45#. There seems to be plenty of hogs around.

I remembered I still had a trail camera running out in the pasture that has been there since the end of gobbler season. I pulled the card in it to see what has been going on. The camera is in no particular travel route, nothing to funnel them, no enticements to get them close to the camera but for some strange reason, almost every turkey that has passed by has walked so close to the camera it fills the whole frame? It was the strangest thing.

Anyway, the young jakes are getting some pretty decent beards on them now and there was a number of mature gobblers.

The grass in the pasture has gotten a little tall but I did not notice any young poults with any of the hens. They sure seem to take a beating. I guess it did not help that we had a couple severe storms systems this spring right during the main part of the hatch.

I wanted to share some of the pics with everyone of what’s been hanging around this spot.
