Got all those food plots planted, Dave?
Working on it - kinda! I'm trying to learn to not fight mother nature. One year there's not enough water, the next there is too much, so my partner and I have decided we will just go with whatever the conditions are. We're certainly keeping the economy going though. LOL One of our farmers has our 100 acre Duck Sanctuary planted in corn, it’s growing fast. We’re getting our blinds set up in the right spots this time. Say that every year! We’ve been spraying and disking some, trying to kill coffee bean plants, at another place.
We traded, some hunting outfit, for four nice duck blinds and a monster portable pump. LIke a pump on a trailer with 4" inch hose. In fact I'll go get the info off of it, y'all might know more about the cost of running it. Anyway on my favorite slough, we had to take out 2 dozen beavers, just couldn't keep up with some of their damning. Now we have a mile of slough divided into 4 parts by beaver dams and two road levy’s we built. My Beaver Hut has water still at floor level right now. I sure have a lot of wood ducks. When the water starts dropping, I’m going to pump that water back over the most upstream dam and save it in a reservoir for season. That’s the beaver dam I was trying to knock down last season. This sounds like a plan don’t it? LOL
We also have this hole up in a field, planted in wheat now, will probably plant beans next. It’s a wet spot that teal love. About 50 yards, through some timber, above part of the swamp we want to drain (section we'll rob water from to indirectly keep my reservoir level up). The hole has been dry the last couple of season’s, oh we can’t wait to pump that hole up..... Going to be our dove hunting hole too. I have wheat around it that will stay up and when that farmer plants beans, I’m going to throw millet all out in there.
It’s just romper room around here like usual - but we have a lot of fun talking, dreaming, and playing in our sandbox......
