Another Season Ends
It is always somewhat sad as the sun sets on the last day of deer season but it also means tomorrow we will start the process of preparing for the next season. Today I moved and repaired three stands and have more I hope to move soon. That way they will be ready when next season rolls around. Our goal is to grow bigger racks next year because we had an abundance of young bucks this year. Our management plan is to only harvest does and good bucks. We want to find the best forage we can produce to provide the nutrients to grow good racks. We are going to do some research on this matter.
This is what our cornfield looked like the last day of the deer season. There was not one grain of corn left in this field and when the season started the deer had not eaten any.
It is really unbelievable what this field looks like. There is not a stalk standing or a grain of corn on the ground in this two acre field of corn. If you would have had humans try to knock down the corn they could not have done a better job than the deer did to this field. It looks like a tornado has been through it and totally destroyed it.
