I saw the trail cam pic perry24 posted of the buck with some decent antler growth so it seemed like a good time to start a new thread for 2021-22.

In a new segment this year, fullmoon will be hosting a weekly webinar where he talks tips, tricks, and even gives hints as to the general coordinates of his favorite honey holes. 😁

Last time up north, I sprayed my main plot (acre) My clover plot is doing well. I can’t decide what to plant this year, May just go back to clover there too. Oats last year were a total bust.
I’d vote for buckwheat …. Super easy and very hearty….deer and turkey love it … most typically think of it as a spring and cover crop for clover, but it will grow and produce in the fall just as well

Joe I was leaning over taking pics of him/her thru the balusters, when it started towards the house and rear stairs. I turned around to go inside and came face to face with another that had come up the stairs unheard behind me. We were about 5‘ apart when we noticed one another. it spun and was down to the landing then down to the ground before I opened the door. Never been that close before. Amazing animals, fast as heck and unbelievably athletic.
Wow

Seems our neighbor decided to discard of a pile of Lucky Charms cereal as well as granola with raisins in their yard. Our yard is not fenced and Maisy roams both yards. This morning, Mary noticed Maisy was chowing on something and got down there to see the food pile. I did a quick search and saw raisins are toxic to dogs. We called the vet and they said to give her a teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide to get to vomit if we wanted to be safe. She never puked so the vet said bring her right in. They gave her something to get the job done and out came what the said was a big pile of raisins. Sounds like it could have gone bad if we ignored it or waited too long. She’s got to stay at the vet for 48 hour$ for fluids and them keeping an eye on her.

It’s totally our fault as her owner for not keeping an eye her. And it’s our neighbors yard….they can do what they want. Gonna be an expensive lesson for us.
Glad you caught it Nicko. Big relief for ya!!
My dog gets into everything and I mean everything. He got up on the counter tonight and stole 4 pieces of cheese I had out for burgers. Thank goodness he didn’t get the onions!

What is the best/most cost effective place to by 1-2' tall Norway Spruce and White Pine seedlings to plant on a ridge on my property? I recall getting a habitat flyer in the mail with really low prices on a lot of tree seedlings. Don't remember exactly who it was at that point.

The game commission does it cheap but the orders are closed for 2021. Something to think of next season

Check out Cold Stream Farm. Minnesota or Michigan if I recall correctly. I was pleased with their trees. Planted a ton of them over the years. Used to buy from a place in Pa but it’s no longer in business. I like Norway or White spruce, not a real fan of white pine, they tend to open up a lot as they mature.
have you planted bare root stock before?

Ok, thanks guys. I could add at least 1/2 acre of solid bedding on one narrow ridge if I planted some evergreens and let it grow up with goldenrod and blackberries between trees.

It has a few oak and hickory trees along the sides of the ridge but kind of open on the top. The whole property is mountain ground. Not a ton of bedding on me though

A quality clover blend is hard to beat, feeds from April to November and is one of the only things that can keep up with heavy browse pressure. When fall planting I like to start with a brassica and mix my clover in, brassicas seem to be a better fall draw and then the clover is established for the next spring and forward.
