HSB 627 Hunting untamed game livestock

This bill defines what "untamed game livestock" is and sets rules for hunting preserves on the killing of untamed game livestock.

Link: <Don't pet it before you kill it, its untamed>>

Untamed livestock includes bison, sheep and pigs as long as they resemble wild bison, sheep and pigs.

Ungulates fall under a different category. Why didn't they get lumped together? Politics. Either that or white tail and elk hunted in preserves are considered tame.

Fertilizer/Herbicide/Seed prices are high...

As I sit here and begin to make plans for this seasons food plots I cant help but be a bit discouraged by the crazy amount of inflation of farm inputs. Just like many of you I have smaller bow hunting plots along with larger late season food sources. The smaller bow plots wont as matter much to a budget as they are typically small and fairly cost effective but these larger late season plots will have a significant impact into a whitetail hunters budget. With Gly being triple in price and fertilizer up 100% these inputs are going to have an impact. Any body have some great ideas on how to combat this issue? Here are some thoughts that have rolled through my head today:

-Does a guy plant beans with oats to help as a nurse crop in hopes of suppressing weeds and save money on herbicides?

-Instead of grain plots, plant the larger plots into brassicas but first a planting of crimson clover to help with N fixation and also not having to spray as you can control it with a mower?

-If planting beans maybe skip the pre-herbicide application and just go in 15-21 days after germination and hammer them with a one time heavier dose spraying

-Maybe going with the Dbltree rotation and for forget the grains all together.

SSB 3074 A tax/ways and means bill that affects IWILL and the trust fund

This is a 118 page bill that covers a lot of ground on a lot of different tax topics. I haven't figured out for sure what it actually does to funding the trust, it doesn't appear to be raising the sales tax it may be changing allocations for where the money would go it the sales tax is increased. When I get a better explanation, I'll share it or if you feel like trying to figure it out plese share your thoughts.

SB3,

I found a post in which you shared a picture of a clover plot, I believe May of 2020, it was from an area you cleared of pines and there was a dog in the picture (Lab I believe.) I was wondering what variety of clover was in that plot, seemed to be very upright and large leafed.
