CUT'EM ALL JACK wrote:ha ha, never ever too early, I have about 3 acres of milo that's headed out (has about 30 corn stalks mixed in tasseling well, along with an understory of wheat, and maybe 7 or 8 sunflowers) I hope the seed comes out full enough for me to brush hog it down some before the opener. anyone know how long it takes milo to turn brown on the heads and start seeding? they are mostly all seeded out, just all still green seeds. oh ya and........... only 16 more days!!!! that's like 2 weeks!!!!!
CUT'EM ALL JACK wrote:I knew someone would try to make a statement like that, that's why I was prepared . my county conservation officer (Billy Barton over iron county Missouri) is a good friend of mine, and also an avid outdoorsman. he personally told me that with dove, it is completely legal to manipulate a crop field however you please, as long as you aren't dumping seed right on the ground, you can mow, cut, chop, etc. as long as you aren't dumping or spreading seed or bait out, its legal. there is no law stating I cant mow down a crop field, then proceed to hunt dove over it. Billy has been a part of this milo field since day 1. yes dove are a migratory bird, but they are not controlled federally like waterfowl, that's why you don't have to buy a federal "dove stamp" to hunt dove. he did say that it is illegal to manipulate a crop for waterfowl however because of federal law dictating it. dove are regulated more so by state law.
