    Thanks everyone for the kind words. I really appreciate that.

    Our Fall turkey shotgun season is in right now, but I'm just not in the mood to hunt for some reason. Instead, I've been out doing habitat work the last few days. The pic below is from a camera on my blind, and all of these turkeys are in range.

    But just because I'm not hunting them, that doesn't mean they are safe.

    One of the things I've been doing is transplanting shrubs. Some of these will go back in downed trees and briers for protection - others will go in individual cages for protection - and others will go into a fenced circle (shown below) that is 32 feet diameter.

    This is the fenced enclosure made with a 100 feet roll of welded wire that will eventually be taken up and moved to another spot once the shrubs inside mature.

    [​IMG]

    I'm also make some hinged cut pathways. I like to do this to create edge and allow sunlight in to areas that have low value trees like poplar. As the regeneration starts taking place, I will go in once or twice a year and whack undesirables so that desirable plants will be able to thrive.

    Several of my sawtooth oaks are getting quite large. It's amazing how fast they grow and produce acorns.

    This is a deer I'm happy to see make it through gun season. He is already a good deer and might be even better next year.

    Lots of rain this week and some commitments, but Good Lord willing I will be back at it soon. Take care
