Relaxing at the Broken Skull

Sitting in a deer stand. It’s 6:30am on Thanksgiving Day. There is a low lying layer of fog but its starting to lift. Another peaceful as hell morning. Very relaxing. I can see shapes of deer through the patches of grey misty fog. One in particular has a haze of white antler above its head. Prolly a pretty nice buck. I’ll let the fog lift a little more and just keep chilling….
Sonofabitch, it is quiet and peaceful. A far cry different than the streets of Los Angeles. I do not miss the sounds of sirens. Whether its an ambulance or a cop, I don’t miss that sound. I don’t miss the low flying helicopters either. Circling the neighborhood keeping a birds eye view of another dipshit running from the law. I don’t miss my damn neighbors dogs barking their asses off all day and night, either.
I’ve been here at the ranch for about three weeks now. It took me a week and a half to just settle into a rhythm and wind down. Hershey is having a blast. She goes everywhere I go. Without a leash. I think she likes the So Cal weather just like I do. And L.A. Is a very cool city. Don’t get me wrong. Lots of history, lots of things to see and do. Great restaurants. But it’s hard to beat South Texas. Or anyplace that’s home, really. It is hotter than hell here in the summer. But once it starts cooling off a little bit and you climb into a deer stand, it’s tremendous.
I’ve taken one cull buck this season. I’ll prolly take another one or two depending on what I see. For the most part though, I enjoy sitting in the brush country of South Texas and watching deer.
The fog is getting lower, rather than lifting. I filmed two good bucks, took pictures, and logged everything I saw into our deer count sheet we keep in the stands. Time to blow this taco stand and go eat breakfast.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Broken Skull Ranch.

    Hope you and your family (and Hershey the wonderdog) have an amazing day together!!! Your ranch is a magical wonderland and it is nice to see my hero enjoying life after the madness of fame and looking forward to the day you get that huge offer from WWE to come back just one more time to put a punk in his place and give your fans one more stunner or three ;) but even if you didn’t….I’m still Redneck Islands biggest fan!!! Happy hunting and thank you for sharing your beautiful life with us…you will always be the man!!!!

    Wish I was there. Actually just wish I could walk and see the deer. Left leg surgery failed and and either in bed or wheelchair and that is real hell and hard to be thankful – but I am thankful for family and friends – they can’t take them away!

    C.M. Punk is still at it so I think you should pay Punk a visit on Raw.

    Mr. Austin not sure if you read these personally or not but if you do from my family to yours hope ypu all had a happy thanksgiving. I which i am sure you get alot am your biggest fan since the beginning. The WWE Universe needs you to set CM Punk straight. I l know that it is a show but this man has went over an beyond professional. Some of the stuff he says an does makes me want to go through the t.v. and wrestle him myself lol. U are such an awesome person an i love watching you on Redneck Island. If we cant see you in the ring t.v. show will do. Well hopefully you will decide to show up on Monday night Raw an tear Punk a new ass. Please keep writting about you an your family n dog an your adventure in the wilderness. Take care Steve. Beth

    Hey Steve, hope all has been good for u. My nephew and I meet u at mattal children’s hospital when u signed a bunch of stuff for use witch we still have and will always have. My nephew is doing a lot better now but still not 100 percent but is back to school after a year in a half of fighting back from an AK 47 gunshot. he was a bystander walking with a friend when he was hit, the shots where fired two blocks away from where he was. took place in Las Vegas. FYI. P.S. I had a feeling tough enough was filmed in my home town of Simi Valley. know thos rocks any where.picked it up when u and Bret went for a drive on the golf cart. and just seen a random pick of it on your site. Well keep enjoying your self CHAMP. If u come back and face any one make it an iron man match vs CM PUNK. the guy is good in the ring but he sure needs a real lesson in respect that only u can teach him. MUCH LOVE to u and yours. P RATT

  22. Hey Austin I’m 14 and I’ve been training already for wrestling but I’m still a good bit away from being as good as you by the way you and Shawn in the ring were like fire and ice perfect matches between y’all but umm any ways I’m in Mississippi and I was just wondering if you had any tips for me if I’m wanting to be in the buisness
