Looks like you won't have far to go to put some meat on the table. Maybe you now need a swing for the front porch to watch the sun set.

The pictures of the cabin were before it was finished. We now have the railings around the porch plus two rocking chairs. My wife will set up her hammock upon her return from Viet Nam in August.

The cabin faces South...so we will have to go to the west side of the porch to see the sun set. I will send more pictures when she returns with the camera. Now I have only pictures that are/were being taken with my game cams.

As to food....that's for sure. I am getting another freezer from my daughter for storage. I have been letting some nice exotic bucks walk by because I am too lazy to shoot them, clean them, cut them up and wrap them for the freezer. I will wait until my wife returns..then....I just shoot it and she does the rest. LOL

We have several species of exotic deer (axis, sika, chocolate fallow, white fallow, spotted fallow and moufalon/barbado sheep roaming around...in addition to our native whitetail. Even a few blackbuck antelope. The exotics escaped from game ranches over the years, and are actually pushing out the native deer. We, of course, also have the usual wild animals of Texas...raccoon, fox, coyote, porcupine, bobcat, ringtailed cat, jack rabbit, a few cottontail rabbit, skunk...and...some swear an occassional cougar. I haven't seen a cougar but one was run over last year on a road a few miles from here. It's sort of like living in a a zoo.

Later

I knew a guy that went to one of those exotic game ranches once and shot something exotic. He also paid something exotic to shoot it and bring it home. By the pound it probably cost him, on the hoof, about as much as prime beef fillet Mignon cut and wrapped at the up scale meat market. And ...if he had it stuffed and mounted.... he could have bought a new car with the same total cost of the adventure probably. He never would say what it all cost him.

Got to thinking about that sunset stuff. You could get an A frame like my wife and I did. She wanted to see the sunset sometimes and watch the BBQ others. Our front porch hasn't got any room for a swing and we like the back yard better. The red swing faces West.
