Looking forward to the cooler weather. Oldest son got the clover field mowed and it looks like the deer and turkeys are going to have a great fall.
Here is as good as I know.Not wishing my life away but I am ready for some fall weather. I guess I am getting really soft, went outside pre-dawn and thought the temps. were not too bad so went back in and got suited up for squirrel hunting. Got to the woods and while the temps. may have been better the humidity was very, very high, I was sweating sitting still under a white oak tree and the skeeters acted like they hadn't had a decent meal in two weeks. Think I will give it another two or three weeks before I go again.
I have 40 acres in the CRP tree program, unfortunately when I put it in the program 30 some years ago the state was providing Ash as one of the species. They grew fast and developed a canopy which shaded out most of the underbrush, the unfortunate thing is the Ash Bore has killed 90% of the Ash trees and the rest are dying. Today I gathered three gallons on White Oak acorns, does anyone know if they will sprout if I go and plant them next to each dead Ash?
