    Yeah, I don’t like the nailed/screwed panels either.

    Ha ha. Alan you have the bar set higher than my stumpy legs will ever get to. If I remember correctly your the one that got me to change from my 30x40 garage to “The Shed” that it is now. Lol. Your place is looking first class as all ways

    Clover is mostly frozen, radishes are eaten to stubs, but our winter rye is still going strong, it's the backbone of our winter deer food in the fields. [​IMG]

    I can’t disagree with rye. We think similar on what’s appropriate for no-fail plot options. I’ll stick with rye myself. Do you have any beans or corn?

    Although I usually do, I don't have beans or corn this year, due to various reasons. I plan to have both next year.

    Our PA muzzle loader season closes on Monday and then the deer will be safe for another year. This means it's time to work on bedding areas, trim trails, and make new food plots and access roads. Here's a new 1 acre plot in a special regulations high deer density area of Chester county that I'd been to busy to make ever since 2006. Clover and oats will get planted March 15.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I was at my place last night. So much ice we could barely navigate with side by side. I was here day dreaming of your dry dirt.

    Stocking up on Regal Graze ladino clover seed, 25lb bag for $135 a bag at King's Agriseeds. When you buy seed where the farmers do you know that the seed is top quality, isn't outdated, and the price is going to be less than BOB. [​IMG][​IMG]

    That sure looks a lot fancier than our seed stores. I’m going to have to let the fellas know they’re not passing muster!

    Cabin fever sets in, so it's time to do a "prefab" blind build in my shop, then I'll take it apart into panels, take the panels out into the woods and reassemble them, I have the 4x6 posts set 4' into the ground, 10' high already, wrapped in painted steel. It will have a treated strairway going up, and be painted black on the inside, with windows similar to a 360 brand hunting blind. The windows are spaced for my chair and to fit specific shooting lanes. My main goal is to buy nothing, so I save potential blind building materials from the dumpster and throw them in a corner of the barn, when I have a pile I start assembling. Therefore every "scrap wood" blind is different, depending what materials I'm able to scrounge. Because this blind is made out of painted steel with double bubble insulation to keep the noise down, it may outlast my grandchildren if a tornado or a tree doesn't get it first. Eventually once it's not too muddy to get to the site I will post finished pics.

    Today I was watching migrating snow geese traveling through Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area on their way to Labrador and Nova Scotia. They peak at up to 200,000 birds and are always a big tourist attraction in late February.
