Youth Turkey Hunt 2011 – Not Weather Friendly

Stewart & Austin spent the weekend at the farm with the first youth turkey hunt on Broom Tree Farm. The turkeys dont like the snow, but the boys made the best of it! … We are a couple of dry days away from finishing the road if the weather would only cooperate. The barn is waiting for the rock road!

Deer Herd At Broom Tree Farm

Don, My dad, Judah, and I counted 24 deer in one group while we were at the farm on Saturday.  The largest herd of deer my dad had ever seen.  It was pretty awesome.  They came out of the woods one at a time, and they just kept coming, and then the ran down the pipe line, and just stood in the middle eating grass.

FYI, you can submit for your deer permits on-line now.  They opened it up on 3/17.

Great 3 days on Broom Tree Lane.  Feels good to have our work complete.  We will need some dry time now to get the road finished.  Thanks to Matt & Tom Black for Friday without the grappler! Dave King received his training on the bobcat and is now an experienced operator. David Padgett worked on Sunday prior to boarding a plane and heading back to Virginia.
