Hog Out County Grants Program

According to the Texas Department of Agriculture, Texas is home to more than two million feral hogs - the largest feral hog population in the nation.  Dang!

TDA is sponsoring the 2nd Annual Hog Out County Grants Program which runs October - December 2011.  Discussion of program participation was on the September 12th agenda for Stephens County regular meeting (Item 11).  I do not know what the outcome was, but if we are participating, the county could win up to $20,000.

Looks like we've got plenty at our place!!

Cool Deer Pics

This is a fun series of pictures taken by the game camera in three-second increments.  You could almost make a flip-book out of them!

Sorry, I haven't been keeping this blog updated very well, have I? Here are some pictures off the game camera we got Dad for Christmas last year. We've gotten lots of interesting pictures on it so far!

Mom and Dad have been doing some updates to the house as well including fresh paint and new floors. Will try to get some updated pictures for you. Thanks for visiting!!
