Hello y'all! I haven't posted or been online much as this is looking like another busy year. Now I'm about to get on the road again for three weeks. After a busy year last year, I'd hoped to do more in the woods to get ready for the season but that hasn't happened. Honestly I would not change my decisions. Family, work, and helping my wife grow her business were the right priorities for me. Now I'm counting down to a trip that won't see me home until mid September. No fall plots are in, no trails are mowed and no stands are reset! There's some opportunity as the pressure on properties has been low and the cover is high. With all of the motivated people here, I'm sure I'm not the first, last, or only one with this predicament! What have you done for your busy years? Any tales of surprise success with low pressure and low prep? Condolences? I am thinking of minimal mowing, stand set up and broadcast/mow plots of rye/wheat/oat (probably some leftover clover and brassicas) in mid September when I get home. Then I'll stay out until Halloween. Curious to hear any thoughts or suggestions.
