We have just had a road constructed through our property for easier access and it will give us another access to a public road. The road was mulched and not dozed so there should not be any erosion. I marked the location of the road for easiest travel and will start using it for travel soon.

This year we are seeing a large number of small bucks. This is a very positive thing because we only harvest large and more mature bucks. This is the deer we will be hunting in three to four years. We are planting more high protein crops and are waiting to see what our results will be. We have pictures of at least twelve different bucks that are very young and vary in size from spikes to small eight pointers. Just about every where we place the camera we get at lest one picture of a small buck.
Where are the big ones from last year? Well we didn't get a picture of a good buck until the middle of December last year. They are much more experienced in when and where to stay until it gets closer to the rut.
There was a good news article shared by Kathy Westra that puts together the American Forest Foundation, Friday-Week in Trees- Tree News from Around The World. The article was taken from the Anniston Star. The article is about the Longleaf Pine Trail being constructed in Calhoun County.
