I’ve planted my browntop, proso, and sunflowers the same week for the past 8 years. This year I guess with all the rain the millet is already starting to head out and looks to be dropping... I feel like this is earlier than normal. What’s yalls fields looking like?

Also I know opening day is also the first Saturday but they are saying “to be announced” still. Think it’ll still be the first Saturday?

Yeah it’s usually the Labor Day weekend. I plant mine a tad earlier so I can burn strips in it.
 
I wish that dove season opened on Labor Day weekend every year. However, it always opens on the first Saturday in September which is September 1st this year. That means that in 2019, dove season will open the Saturday after Labor Day. I think the reason that the season opener is listed as, “to still be announced “, is because the DNR is discussing whether to allow hunters to begin hunting at sunrise on opening day, or begin hunting at noon.
 
Have the same problem with one of my millet fields. Nothing you can do about it really, hard to complain about too much rain when other years it was bone dry. I just hope it stays green through this month and we’ll start cutting ans burning strips in August. I saw they released the dates today, no surprises the opener is on the first... but I couldnt find if they are sticking with the start at noon on the opener or are they going to allow shooting at sunrise? If anyone can find the answer to that...
