Hunting and Prescribe Fire
My daughter got a nice deer this past weekend. We manage our property for large rack deer. We plant food plots, use prescribe fire every year to improve the habitat.
Side view, good rack
This year we have burned 75 acres. This stand has been thinned once and had never had fire in it. With all the rain we have had we were lucky to get this in but because the lower levels of the duff was still damp and this helped keep the roots cool when we burned.
The day we burned the weather was perfect. There was little smoke and the fire was not seen because we were burning far from anyone. This picture was made from one of the higher spots on our property looking out over the burn area.
The debris pile in the foreground of the picture is to be burned soon, weather permitting.
