Hope the game warden doesn't see this. Lol. 250 DOVE. DOVE. LOL

3 deer, no bucks other than a 12" spike. Culled two does. ****ty season.

They are big rabbits around here really. Biggest buck I ever shot was a 21" spread 10 pointer, he weighed 108 lbs BEFORE I cleaned him. Lol

No 108 is pretty big here though. I here these ignorant bastards say they kill 135 lbs all the time, never happen in CENTEX unless your giving it steroids. Only weighed that one because the scale was available. I figured 125. Not to good at guaging weight. My buddy killed a 150 lbs 8 point in Kansas this year. HUGE neck. Crazy.

Think we hijacked a thread?

Buck and a quarter to a buck and a half is a big critter on the coast.

3x3 & 4x4 most common.

You guys count points funny back there.

Maybe a bit we only have mule deer here so I have to give the white tail hunters a little grief. Texans come here and think there elk.

Have a Yankee friend who says the same thing. Used to be if you could hang a ring on it, it counted. Officially it changed to an inch. That is for real, too. My buddy is from Illinois and he calls 10 points 5x5. Only he usually doesn't think its a 10...

Bull Elk go 800-1200 lbs out here.

No mistaking them for a Coastal Black Tail...

Well unless you have a new hunter in the party that got into the whiskey & went hunting...

Ya real story...NEVER hunted with us again...

I call this a 8 point. He's a cull, but he was free.

I've never hunted anything else. I'm at the base of the Mountin right at the canyon entrance so there thick in my back yard every night. Used to paintball em when I was a kid, or blunt em with arrows.

There are many ways to charge as a GC. Time and Materials, Cost Plus a percentage, Cost Plus a percentage with a cap, Cost Plus a fixed rate, Fixed Cost Bid. There are many ways. The main thing to know when contracting is Labor +Materials+ Overhead+Profit equals your price. This is very basic, but I'm not going into graphic detail on the web. If you want more information, PM me.

BTW, welcome to Central Texas. If you like BBQ, Mexican food, cold beer, hunting and fishing and beautiful women, you will love it.

I love all those things, so I will fit in well. But the BBQ in KC will not be beat in Texas, I promise you. I can assure you that I am not a home owner looking for answers. I would google what I needed if I were. I asked you guys because you are pro's. Or supposed to be pro's. I plan on being here for a long time.

Truthfully, I am not sure how much the GC portion of my company will occupy. It is something that I want to offer, but it won't be my only service.
