CRP

7 posts in this topic

I hear alot of people talking about hunting CRP. Is everyone talking about the same thing? Are people asking land owners to hunt CRP on their land? Or are people using the acronym in place of Public hunting lands, WMA, WPA?

i would think they are refering to privately held actual crp fields and buffer strips. public land is not enrolled in crp so it would be misuse of the term.

CrappiesNCats has the answer. Alot of people interchange CRP with any grassy type cover. Although Carpshooterdeluxe is also right that public land does not have CRP technically. CRP stands for Conservation Reserve Program which is done to set aside marginal crop land in native type grasses.

That's what I figured, I know what CRP is, and I was getting the feeling that alot of people here refer to it as prairie grass.

Even private land that is covered in grassy vegetation does not mean it is in the CRP program. I have a few acres on my place that I don't grow crops on but it isn't CRP land either. In other words, I don't get paid not to use the land.

Well, actually in a way I might. It would probably cost me more to work the land than what I could get out of it if I farmed it. So I save the expense and therefore, I make money I guess. It would be legal for me to cut the grass for hay if I chose but there isn't enough there to make it worth my while so I leave it for the wildlife and my pheasant hunting.

Same here. I seeded a portion of our pasture to warm season native prairie grasses about 5 years ago. It's developed into a couple acres of a nearly pure stand of yellow Indiangrass and doesn't look much different than our CREP acres that border it. That area of the pasture provides cover for ground nesting birds in the spring & summer months and grazing for the sheep in the month of August when the cool season grasses in the rest of the pasture tend to go dormant. The sheep also keep the brush and trees out of it so it's a win-win situation.

Can't tell the difference between the CRP and private grassland from the road? Don't feel bad, it fooled our FSA office too. I got a letter from them a year ago chastising me because the mowing I'd done on my CREP acres wasn't sufficiently controlling the thistles. Trouble is, I never mowed any of my CREP acres, I spot-sprayed them. I did however mow some of my pasture and after checking with one of the Co. Directors, that's where they apparently looked. Spot-sprayed both this year, got good control, and heard nary a peep out of them.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
