    UTV Opinions/Advice Solicited

    This is just an anecdotal observation that might be relevant: The other day I was hunting the pine farm. One of the other owners was hunting as well. We coordinate so I knew where he was hunting. His stand was about a half mile from mine. I saw nothing that night, but about sunset, I heard...

    chestnut growers

    We must have had a weather issue this spring. Chestnuts trees that were starting to produce the last couple years had nothing this year. Our oaks did not produce either this year.

    Chestnut Ridge

    I think it has been on Oct or Nov when I got nuts from them. No rush. You should get them in plenty of time for cold stratification.

    Brush Transport

    My bucket has been my poor man's manlift. I just lift it to the height I need and use a ladder to climb up into it.

    Chinese Chinquapin

    I have ACs that grow native on my place. I've collected nuts and propagated a lot of them. These are native and well suited! They do get blight, but react differently than American chestnuts. They react to the blight similar to how they react to fire. They die back and then resprout from...

    Chinese Chinquapin

    I had a horrible experience with Schumacher getting Sequin seed. It was all moldy and none germinated. Bill had a good experience buying seed from them the next year. I'm interested in following his progress. Mine fizzled out...

    Chinese Chinquapin

    Yes, the are called Seguin and are a variety of chestnut. The nuts are small. I bought some from the wildlife group but they eventually died. Do a search for Seguin and you will find my experiences with them. Thanks, Jack

    Burris Oracle X

    Well, I finally released an arrow from this setup. About 15 minutes after I get into my stand, when things start to settle down, I like to make a few soft turkey feeding calls. I think it tends to relax any deer in the area that were impacted slightly by my entry. About 1650, I heard a...

    Burris Oracle X

    It is not for a rifle. It is designed for a crossbow. My experience with the sub-one lite is quite different. Under very unique circumstances I do hope to shoot out to 35 yards or so, but that would be very unusual for me. I practice out to 50 yards. A lot depends on your tolerance for...

    Burris Oracle X

    I also made one more modification the setup. The other day, I hunted a stand where I expected deer to be feeding in a field to my right. I had cover on that side in a few places but most was pretty open. I had another small field to my left. where it was possible for deer to feed but much...

    Burris Oracle X

    On the heavy side for a scope. If I was run-n-gun style hunting for turkey, I may not want to lug it around. Same if I was hunting Elk in the mountains. For treestand hunting in the east, the weight is insignificant. They don't have a weight spec on it and I didn't weigh it. It is...

    New Project

    I continue to be impressed with the project. Just like a food plot nutrient cycling will eventually deal with the soil tilth.

    Field grown trees anyone?

    Here, we call that feeding squirrels. :emoji_smile:

    Sometimes luck beats doing everything right

    My buddy is an excellent shot as he has killed his share of gobblers with a crossbow. How could he miss by a foot at a much larger target at 20 yards? He understands turkey and their behavior very well, be not deer. When to release an arrow only comes from experience. My guess is that his...

    Raptor vs Imox update and questions for experts

    Years ago, I bought some that was intended for pond use at half the cost rather than Raptor which is for crop use. They had the exact same active ingredients as Bill notes. As I recall, there was something that Raptor had in it, not listed as an active ingredient that made it work. I can't...

    Magic Eraser

    When I was a kid I chewed my pencils. I'm sure I consumed a lot of erasers by accident. I'm not sure if any were magic, but they did disappear. I just figured, this too shall pass. Could explain a lot about what's wrong with me. :emoji_laughing:

    Volunteer Buckwheat

    If I were in the mid-west and had fertile soil, I would probably use it less if at all. It is a great OM builder which is great on marginal soils, but it is not the only one. Different conditions and different strategies. I'm far enough south that between deer browsing pressure and weed...

    Field grown trees anyone?

    My squirrel always eats the nuts rather than planting them! :emoji_smile:

    Volunteer Buckwheat

    I buy mine locally from the coop. Price is about the same as online when you add in shipping.
