    No beauty like peace of mind. Interestingly I also have a dog with one blue eye. "Annie Oakley "

    @Chris Only in the winter due to our below zero temperatures. In the summer it turns into a lush green ranch. This photo was taken in the same spot as the other one.

    @Chris this another image of it in the summer.

    @Wild straight up beautiful. We are blessed to be able to buy another 10 acres behind our house giving us 15 acres where we live. We have another 42 acres 35 miles away. It’s not wide open like Colorado but it’s ours (God’s we mange it). And all 7 grandkids live within a hour and a half.

    @Chris that’s beautiful man! We bring my daughter out to the ranch to have a good time without tv or internet, just quality time as a family. We converted a shed into a house, and everything is 100% solar powered. Nothing in this world is like having your own private piece of property, and creating family memories. Land prices are crazy in Colorado now. When I bought my ranch I only paid $7,000. Now days my ranch is worth so much that I wouldn’t be able to afford it in cash anymore. I feel blessed I had enough sense when I was younger to buy it, and that my daughter will have the ability to have those family memories.

    @Wild that’s why we bought it. Prices are crazy here as well. I wanted to be able to hunt with family and not be beholden to someone else. Opening of the gun season I’m mostly the camp keeper. Funny thing is I shot a decent buck last year from the front door of the cabin in a freezing rain while making lunch waiting for everyone to come in.

    That’s awesome man. If you got a picture of the buck I would like to see it. I lived in east Texas for awhile, so I completely understand wanting your own property to hunt. Every thing out there is private property.Every hunter I knew was dreaming about having their own property to hunt on.

    @Wild She's a bit of a mutt, mostly pitbull but we did a doggie DNA test and she came back 2% Huskie so that may explain it

  • Wild's avatar

    That’s a nice white tail.

  • Wild's avatar

    @Kyle That would explain it. I’ve never seen heterochromia on a pit before. It’s a really cool combination.
