I manage, hunt, and co own 35 acres with my father in southeastern NC, pender county to be exact. We purchased the land in the summer of 2015. I use the term work, but we have spent more time cutting, walking, chopping, picking up, planting and researching than we have been in a stand. Never knew that I could be looking forward to december and january to make improvements to the habitat as much as i look forward to the actual hunt. Thanks to WPBDEER for showing me this website and hooking me up with some chestnuts for my students to grow. closeup of a perennial white clover plot in the front 1/3rd of the property Here is current middle food plot with brassicas and rye here is middle plot brassicas with rye mixed in from the stand view. Also can see 3 kieffer pears and 3 plums on the left side Here is first plot, also has poor coverage due to torrential rains a few weeks back flooding out the plot. this This is part of an old loading deck near the road that is approximately 2ft of pine mulch. Is it very wet and thick with mulch that has been slow to breakdown. Have planted heavy on the rye is an effort to speed up decomp of mulch and bark and limed heavily as well.
