Warming Up for Fall at Red River Breaks
The summer lull is over here at the Red River Breaks and we have been busy with preparations for our busiest fall yet! With half of August practically under our belt, we are looking forward to a full calendar of events and activities.
The Hunt Club roster is full, with some new members joining us for the 2013-2014 season. Last Saturday, we held our annual Hunt Club Meeting giving new and old members a chance to get to know one another. We also spent time reviewing the mission statement of the Ranch and the regulations for hunting and recreating on the property. Our new, automated check in system was introduced and we can’t wait to launch it for deer season! Hunt Club members will now be able to reserve blinds from their personal computers and handheld devices and we will be able to easily and efficiently download harvest data and wildlife data directly to our database to share with Texas Parks & Wildlife.
Hunting season opens here at Red River Breaks on September 28, 2013 and we are excited about this year’s deer herd. Spot light counts begin August 15, 2013 with the first count in a series of three. Stay tuned for a blog post on this process and how the data translates into our harvest goals/deer tags for the season.
We also held a BLCC Shareholders Open House last Sunday, offering an opportunity for Shareholders of the Ranch to view plans for cosmetic updates to the Lodge and Facilities. The majority of Shareholders and some of their children were able to attend and the Open House was a great success!
September 7, 2013 marks the beginning of a full slate of events at the Lodge. September is full to the brim with corporate retreats during the weekdays, overnight stays, and weddings on the weekends. With weddings booked in October and November as well, this fall is shaping up to be a record-breaking one for the Red River Breaks Lodge! Take a look at our calendar on the website to see the details of each weekend.
Agriculture Operations are in full swing, with the winter wheat going in and preparing for our Winter Stocker Program. The weather has cooperated over the summer and we have had more rain than we could hope for, keeping stock tanks up and fields greener than we’ve seen in August. Let’s hope it continues into the winter. We have posted a job listing for an intern to assist with our operations as they continue to grow and have had a handful of responses in only a week! We look forward to shaping a newcomer to our industry and will introduce him or her as soon as they sign on.
Well, that’s all for now! Don’t forget! We can easily set up any sort of activity or event for you and your family. Please contact us and join in the activity here on the Ranch – there’s something for everyone here at the Red River Breaks!
