Welcome to the forum Doc !
Hey!!!! Whats up? My name is Calvin, Im from La and live in SETx. I hunt in probably the most difficult county in Tx, Newton County. Lots of illegal pressure there. I have been hunting for 51 years....man that's a long time. I mainly bowhunt and just recently picked up my rifle again to deer hunt. I am married with 4 children, I am a Christian man that loves the LORD and HIS creation. I believe I should be a steward of the land and all that's in it, as one way of showing my love for Christ and a witness for him. I look forward to being on this website and learning as much as I can. I have been practicing Wildlife management for a lot of years, but believe I can still learn.
Glad to be here, Calvin, aka, Sir miss Alot
Welcome Calvin ! I hunt a place not too far from you in Trinity Co. Big woods hunting can be hard, but food plots, if you have a place to put them, can make it a little easier. I was fortunate enough to have a three quarter acre opening where I was allowed to hunt and the plot has really made a difference.
Hunting in general, and especially food plotting for deer hunting, is a journey, and we learn as we go. There is lots of knowledge here, some of it doesn't apply as much to the SE Texas Pineywoods as it does to other areas, but it still makes for good reading.
Yessir, I hunted Batson a couple of years bavk, thats not to far from Trinity.
I have 3 small plots, I only hunt one. The pineywoods has so much for them to eat a plot is more dessert than meal.
Looking forward to more conversations. Sir Miss ALot...out!
Welcome aboard Sir Miss A Lot! Great bunch of guys on this site and will be made even better since you joined. Look forward to your contributions.
Thanx a lot guys! Looking forward to learning
My name is Matt. I used to be fairly active on the QDMA forums under the names "Younghunter" and then later "mdweber2".
I caught the habitat bug in high school while trying to improve my family's land in Wisconsin. After I graduated from college, I worked for three years for a land trust improving wetlands, prairies, and oak savannas. Then, I spent 2 years in California studying river restoration and geomorphology, and now I work for an engineering company that specializes in river, wetland (and some coastal) enhancement projects. Last fall I moved to Charlottesville, Virginia.
Anyone else living in Central Virginia... feel free to say hi or private message me.
With your interests and hands on experience in habitat restoration your input will be a great addition here. Why don't you start a thread on improving wetlands, prairies and oak savannas! I have oak ridges and would like to transform some to oak savannas but don't know where to start...
Welcome back. Sounds like an interesting job you have.
Welcome Matt, looking forward to your input.
Hi Matt, good to have you back.
