I have several projects done and several to do. So far have hinge cut 1/2 acre or so in thick bedding cover. Planted 35 conifer trees in bedding areas for thermal cover and am getting ready to plant couple of 1 acre fields to a switch grass mix for deer, turkey and small game habitat and bedding. Also replanted a 1/2 acre food plot to imperial whitetail clover with some alfalfa mixed in and have 3 other clover and alfalfa plots to get in yet. This wet spring has slowed me down a bit but should have everything finished up next couple weeks. Deer hitting mineral and feeders hard last month or so. A wet spring and early green up usually equates to some good sized buck come this fall.
I'm headed out now to move some things around in the woods. Mainly, I want to get my Redneck blind out of the hay field and placed on the hay wagon. The wagon is already in the woods and ready to go. I'll store the Ghillie material in a trash can until September. Hopefully this will keep the squirrels off of it for a while.

If I can swing it (baby on way in September so pennies pinching more) but hoping to rent a mini excavator to dig a few ditch line/water troughs in a few spots, small water hole in clover plot and eradicate some bush honeysuckle for a BH bedding area I want to convert over to dogwoods, service berries, winter berry, willow bush types and not BH.
