    Just 1

    I only have a riding mower and getting a pull behind sprayer has been an enormous game changer for me. I would rather use a bag spreader than a backpack sprayer. I just so happen to also have a pull behind spreader, but if I had to pick one to drop, the spreader would go. Plotting is so much...

    The Woods ... mistakes I'v made

    If having a few oaks you planted too close together is your biggest eff up, I think you’re doing okay. I’m not sure that anything that I’ve done has made any difference at all, positive OR negative. The only feeling worse than regret is feeling irrelevant or inconsequential. Sent from my...

    Mostly Failed (at My First) Food Plot

    Broadcasting soybeans as a first ever plot isn’t quite a hail mary, but not too far off. I would start with the lickcreek mix around labor day, and then maybe try a throw and roll/mow of a bigger seed next year. But start with a bulletproof plot like winter rye and clover and use that as a...

    timber management for whitetails

    I hinge cut a group of hickories along a field edge to give my pear trees more light. The job accomplished that goal but more than that created a ton of cover along that previously open edge. Now if only I had taken my phone along to get pictures... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help Identifying a Mushroom

    I normally see them growing directly on dead elms. The larger the pores on the bottom, the more mature the shroom and supposedly the worse tasting. I’ve tried fresh ones and older ones and they all suck. Good to be able to identify in a life or death situation, but I’ll look at them and maybe...

    No Apples

    Yeah I would look at it as an opportunity for your trees to explode and pump out a dumptruck of fruit next year. This fruit tree thing ain’t for the impatient, it’s definitely a long game. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sourwood trees

    Keep a few but cut a few. If it’s growing naturally, they’ll grow again later, but you need the sunlight now. KILL (some) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bone Dry

    Wil plums looking good.

    Very cool, that’s some awesome growth. I’ve planted several and they have seemed to grow in slow motion. I’m planning to order some scion and topwork some of my stubs next spring. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    insane land prices

    I’m hoping it’ll crash at some point so I can get back into the game. We’re buying an existing house instead of building as material prices made it untenable to build. Still have a 2 acre piece of land sitting there that I can liquidate or save to shoot on and potentially build later. 60k+ in...

    Bush honeysuckle, autumn olive, stilt grass

    Spraying leaves has knocked the plants back so that it wont fruit that year and spread, but cut and spray in late winter has been the way to kill it. But if I want to make sure it’s dead and gone in an area, I’ll have to do a pass the next year too. It can outcompete native plants in one season...
