    My weekend wood working project

    The past two weekends we ran a little over 450 yards. The fence pick is the back half. My friend who owns the farm in Va and is kind enough to let me hunt any season and fish and stay at his home, I give him a good bit of my time in the spring to get some projects done. We work well together. I would or should have been a farmer. I find a lot of peace and satisfaction after a good days work.
    Plus I see my Sunflowers are going along nicely for dove season and the upper field I planted in a foot plot for deer is doing really good this year.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Dave, we prefer barbwire, but any free fencing will do if you get bored
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Bob I love it when I get to drive the big JD, sit back and listen to the radio with the AC cranked up. Life on the farm is kind of laid back.

    Here ya go Bob

    You haven't enjoyed the farming life until you have spent time behind a good team! The pictures are beautiful. Am putting in some turnips this year for my deer plot. Deer utilize my pasture and pond until shotgun season, then they tend to hole up now South of us as our SW neighbor has leased his hunting ground to a "guide". Hoping the turnips pull them back in at least for a couple of shots. CJ will be on his maiden hunt hopefully next year if Uncle Eric has anything to do with it. Lead sled and single shot 22 strapped onto the shooting bench and CJ is having a blast!! What mix do you have in your deer plot?
    Oh, high tensile wire here, not much barb wire.
    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.

    I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.

    Jonathan Have I got the seed for you ! Buck Wheat ! Deer will hammer it. It grows fast and you can not over seed it. You do not have to till just broadcast it. We were pulling deer from all over the area and I was seeing upwards to 90 deer in one field.
    Steve when I retire (NOT) I will take you up on that.
