  1. I reroofed my house last summer I got about $300 rebate for the singles i bought at Menards. Well worth it.
  2. Not surprised at all. Extreme habitat loss over the last 5 years along with disease in portions of the state. Whitetails are pushing out mule deer in central and western SD as whitetails follow the expansion of fall crops like CORN. I hope they actually start drawing for archery mule deer tags in central SD. Way too many people along the counties near the Missouri
  3. Love we need to post links and data on agriculture chemicals killing our eco-system? I deal with ethanol spills on a weekly basis from around state here at work. Plenty of industry spills
  4. Civil Engineer in the petroleum industry
  5. Creepworm, Sorry for the confusion on my part. While they don't pay taxes directly.... The federal goverment pays Payments in Lieu of Taxes (or PILT) which are federal payments to local governments that offset losses in property taxes due to non-taxable Federal lands within their boundaries. Here is the link, you can see payments per state and per county each year including 2013.
  6. South Dakota Game Fish and Parks pays taxes on all land owned by the state of South Dakota, such as game production area. Not sure if you consider that government or not. Maybe not.
  7. Yes, but once land is purchased by the government, taxes are no longer collected on that land. Therefore, purchasing land is a loser in the long run for the government. South Dakota Game Fish and Parks pays taxes on all public land owned by the state of South Dakota. Are they considered government?
  8. If soil erosion is that big of problem in given araes god forbid you leave a grass waterway or butter strip. I guess it is pain to spray and plant around though right? Rumor has it the world would be a better place if every last acre of crop land was tiled. Guess what guys? water coming out of a tile outlet is cleaner than rural water. I have sat thru a Hefty tile seminar, now there is some tile propaganda for ya.
  9. Why is very piece of grass CRP? That is because it isn't. Just as much native grass in being plowed up as CRP in SD.
  10. You know what held the nutrients in best in that picture? The virgin prairie that was there 3 years ago.
  11. Here some good old virgin prairie in NE SD ready to be torn up to feed the hungry, cough, cough, I mean ethanol plant
