Texas Drought, Water, Fire and the Game Camera

My brother and I have kept the feed flowing at our place in Lampasas county because very little is available for the wildlife to eat. Due to the long time drought birds and other wildlife are having a real hard time making a living. My uncles each have acreage on either side of our place with available water. One has a well with a tank and float and the other has a stock pond which has never gone completely dry in my lifetime, but it is getting awful shallow. We decided to put out some small five gallon poultry waterers for the dove, turkeys and songbirds at the feeders. We are using these until we can design and build something better. We are working on a guzzler or large waterer to put out until we can have a well, cattle trough or stock pond put on our acreage. The following pictures show what a difference a little water makes at the feeders. If you can help feed and water the wildlife during this hard time please do so and be very careful with fire as the whole State is ready to burn away. Wild Ed

Yes the corn bandits are at it again. I thought I would wait until the kits are out on their own before I start busting any again. They cost me a moter and a barrel last year. Ed
