    Spacing on Shrubs/Conifers

    Like others have said i would be real careful with cedars. They can get out of control and become a wasteland in a hurry. (I def do like some). I think a really cool habitat is native grasses with mass producing trees planted within. The old oak savanna scenario is super neat and badass for...

    Bucks fighting, why the Increase?

    The buck to doe ratio is a fascinating conundrum. My farms, an exponentially higher amount of does get shot and yet every year it seems like the does outnumber the bucks 10-1. It's hard to comprehend.

    HSB 158 Crossbows in late archery season

    Chip chip chip away. This is how this works. I don't know if saddening or maddening is more fitting anymore.

    Fish stocking recommendations.

    Iowa DNR puts out a helpful fish stocking guide. You can look it up. I used Blyzo.

    Looking to build a portable wagon blind.

    My general thoughts on these: -Game changer. I have killed more deer out of mine than any other blind/stand I have. I have shot several with a bow too. -Goes down the road well. 45 MPH easy. -Never staked mine down -Multiple times pulled into field, climbed in, and killed that afternoon. -Def...

    176 CRP- DWGH Farm Projects Thread

    yeah I wouldn't read too much into the no shed thing. CRP, natives, etc.... none of it is good bedding cover the time of year that deer are dropping antlers. That dynamic won't change in a CRP vs. straight switch discussion. Where deer drop antlers is about two things and two things only. Winter...

    176 CRP- DWGH Farm Projects Thread

    I'm not a big fan of giant expanses of straight switch. (I like it in small pockets). Piece I got is in pollinator but it has natives in it. So there is bedding cover but the forbes create a giant foodplot. Watch a deer go thru this type of diverse planting and they are constantly browsing. I...

    2018 Farm Bill

    .... I'm going to say that is BS and she is is being lazy. I run into this all the time with FSA being lazy. You gotta hound their ass. Some of the programs are guaranteed. I signed up field perimeters last year under continuous as quail program. Lots of options as Hardwood mentioned, prairie...

    176 CRP- DWGH Farm Projects Thread

    You're going to love it. CRP farms are often overlooked, but in many cases are just as good as a traditional timber/combination farm. I just bought bought one myself, but I been hunting it since 2015. It's a phenomenal hunting farm and it's almost all CRP.

    SF 112 Changes to the Forest Reserve Program

    Boooo! Taxes would go from $0 on forest reserve land to 25% of what they would be. This is just a tax hike.

    New world starting today!!

    I'm going to predict the market goes up. There is way too much money out there its mind boggling. Inflation is a far bigger concern.

    Winter success on hunt to remember....

    Great life message right there. When our time comes, no one will give a rat's ass how many big deer we have on the wall. Other things are far more important. It's easy to lose track of priorities sometimes.

    HF 22 Black bear hunting

    I know with mountain lions it's fair game year round cuz iowa doesn't recognize them as game animal. I'm assuming bears same way? So, yeah this would make it a no no to shoot em. ..... my assumption
