    When Vermont's deer herd gets big enough to overtake the carrying capacity in my area of the state, then they can make that argument! Thats why I said education and then a permitting system for those that want to supplemental feed.

    Sorry to have hijacked your thread. I will let it get back to your regularly scheduled posts!

    LOL. I agree with you, just pointing out what "they" will say. I think I've seen four deer my entire life in Vermont.

    Tommy - It was weird this year being able to hunt over bait/feed in N GA. Like you, I nor any of us shot a deer over the 3 feeding stations we kept filled. Just didn't seem right but that's prolly from never being able to hunt over bait in N GA my entire life until this year. In our cabin field, which is easily seen from the porch of the cabin, I have clover and a feeder and it has deer in it every day. Could easily sit on the front porch just before dark and shoot deer all season. That field is off limits to hunting.

    Another post-burn picture from today. To have had as much rain as we have, this sure burned good.

    One more. This was in an area I hinge-cut several years ago. Want to see this all grow up in broom sedge and other warm season grasses and forbs.

    literally on the line of 4b/5a
    It looks like when the fire went thru the hinge cut area, it didn't burn at least some of the hinged trees(top right of last picture). Is that normal? We have not ever seen a burn.

    Correct. Burned it quick to burn up the duff but leave the structure. Most of those tops are still live, just haven't put on leaves yet. If I waited until the leaves were on, it would kill them. It did, however, kill the pine saplings which was part of the plan.
