    The last photo.....all is well then? 🙏

    @Lisa yes that last photo was just a shot of a few of the calves. Cows are fat calves are in great shape. Very blessed.

    I've had that problem. I've had better success with P-Line Floroclear and Beyond Braid line. Like the results so far, less knot breakage and superior casting.

    @David thank so you so much David!

    @Chuck very healthy looking calves.

    @David yes we had a great May and June and grew a lot of grass. July and August were brutal but have had about 4.5 inches of rain in September so pastures are looking better going into Fall. I dont have the place stocked as heavy as I could but I will keep it that way just be safe.

    I really like braided line. From salmon to bass and catfish.

    @Wes one of my sons uses braided and o think I am headed that direction. Probably a dumb questions but do they make a clear braided line? If not what is a good go to color?

  • Wes's avatar

    @Chuck I’ve don’t believe there is a clear braid. I use spiderwire . The dark green color is pretty much invisible in the water.

Life long hunter and outdoor guy. Believe that a trophy is different for everyone, some are blessed enough to hunt high fence and exotic locations some just hunt their backyard. I believe each person should be just as proud of their harvest no matter where it comes from or what a tape measure or scale tells you about it. Only possible because a big loving God created them for us to have dominion over.
