    I've got a large addition going on the house over the summer... new master bedroom over an oversized garage w/ full bath. Need to get a bigger room for the wife and I and have an extra room in case we have a new addition... ya never know...
    Divorced with 2 daughters 10 & 12. Their stepmom is a Godsend... they adore her and she them. It's a great situation.
    Why not start over again around 40!?!?! :bhod:

    Congrats on second. Looks sweet. You do all the work yourself?
    I want to get into fixing up some classics. End of winter I dug my mustang out and gutted it and redid it a bunch, still a handful of things to go but drivable. Definitely not for a show but functional for some family driving fun and learning. Hopefully in a few years get something worth putting some more time and effort into to getting real nice.

    Believe it or not, it is an un-restored original. I was working on one when I found this truck. All original, right down to the paint. Only 34,000 miles.

    That's even cooler yet. Glad to see them around in great shape. I like a lot of the resto mods and all but seeing them untouched and original is best

    Hey guys - I've got some time in now scouting and running cams on the new lease. I've got several mature bucks on the property, but there isn't enough antler growth yet to really tell how big, and of course there is no way to tell how many or which ones will stick around once the velvet peels off. With that said, the sign I'm seeing and the pics I'm getting now really look good.

    I'll have some video to share soon, but for now I thought I'd share this pic with you guys. He's not a giant, but I'm guessing he's still there and might be this year. This side scored a hair over 65".

    Very nice Rick James.
    I haven't even put a deer cam out yet. I usually don't start until august after I finish up kids softball seasons.
    Been turkey hunting as much as I can.
    Got another good one yesterday am.

    Finally a little progress for deer season lately. Sprayed a couple little plots a week or so ago. Disced up the two I could get to and today took the tiller back to the other. Pretty optimistic for them this year. If I were planting for season now I'd be confident I was set. They had some growth last year and deer come through, but I never broke ground just sprayed raked and broadcast. With how nice it tilled up and I think this year it should grow in awesome. Spread some rye on them and some clover on trails between for now. Plan on doing rye, oats, and turnips in them for fall. Trimmed out some shooting lanes, got few cams and mineral refreshed, and put more lime in too. Felt great to put some time to deer again

    Saved a little rye to get out and a cam to set. My hunting partners woulda been pretty upset if they didn't get to do their part. It's worth it just having them so excited to help out and my older said the big bucks are gonna love this.

    Great pics turro! Gotta love the little ones in action.
    Heal up bootlegger. Recovery sucks, but do it right so it's good to go and you don't have to go through it again
