Crops in the area

5 posts in this topic

Was down to my uncles yesterday and its amazing with corn prices how many acres are planted this spring in the area. Should be some fat deer by winter time. Best yet is a 35 acre field bordering his farm is planted in soybeans this year - should be great early season bowhunting....and being in an EAB zone again for the third year it will come in handy!

Better hope for some summer weather so the crops grow.

Looks like this week might finally be a good kick start to get things growing significantly finally. And pray for rain this year!

yep, some corn areas around here will be pushing the old saying "knee high by the 4th of July"

No kiddin, hopefully not a repeat of last year with too much rain in spring/early summer and then none and HOT weather July/August. In my hunting area, we got just enough small amounts (1/4") of rain here and there to save the crops. Other areas only 15 miles away got fried. We actually ended up with some of the tallest sileage corn in many, many years with decent ears to boot. I spent a bunch of time and miles watering apple trees - they are looking great thus far minus the two I lost over the winter. I gave them a dose of fertilizer yesterday - the wild apple trees should be great also, over half of them were full of blossoms earlier this year.

Still not sure what to do with my small plot in the woods....need to break in a new one soon for a fall planting of rye. We have about 2 acres of corn for food plot that got a good shot of roundup yesterday. Never know though, with corn prices it might get included in the fall harvest and end up in angus bellies vs whitetail bellies!

If we hit $15 a bushel corn like they are predicting, our plots will be expanded into full fledged agri business.:o

    • Have a friend that does this....   http://aquaculturenorthamerica.com/Finfish/fresh-water-fish/profitable-commercial-production-for-walleye-and-saugeye/    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
