This coming season there will be two properties hunted next to us that hasn't been hunted by another club in several years. We can only hope they have management in mind. Ten or twelve years ago, a club leased next to us and shot everything they saw. Every weekend, they had guest shooting the same. In two seasons we didn't have enough deer to hunt, that club left. Now that property is cow pasture. It took three years before we began seeing enough deer to take two bucks each, and most of us didn't. All it takes is one group to ruin an area, and there's nothing you can do about it. Usually when they quit seeing deer, they leave and go for a lease elsewhere to do the same thing.

Twenty years ago, there was a club hunting the 250 I mentioned above. They had ten members and allowed guest. No need telling how that worked out, but eventually the land manager for that property sent them packing. He then leased to us.

We're lucky, there's nothing big enough in our place yet. It will be another 6 or 7 years before they can do a thinning of the first planting. About half the place. Other half is only about head high now.

Checking our plots considering when we want to mow and plant the winter plots were shocking. I've never seen crab grass grow to such heights. Suppose to be high in protein, but what will eat it besides cows? Guess we can contribute the growth to all the rain we've been having. Last few days have been dry, noticed some of the swamp water is receding. Farmers are getting in corn, they don't want rain right now. Looking forward to some cooler weather.

Hopefully SW GA doesn’t get to much wind and rain from these storms coming, It’s still to hot to work all day long in the woods cleaning roads and plots.
