    I’m went through the same thing. I planted my yard 2 years ago and am now having some clover wanting to take over in a few spots. The first year I had that other grass popping up all over. Everytime time I went outside I’d try to go to one area and pull out as much of that ugly grass as I could. It kinda sucked but it’s definitely looking a lot better now. I just sprayed Trimec last night to wipe out the clover and other stuff, but am still pulling out some of that gass in spots.

    I’m not sure if its too late for crab grass preventer but Trimec won’t kill the other type of grass that you have popping up in spots. It will only get the broadleafs.

    I haven’t actually fished in the town Humboldt but I do know there’s a dam upstream from where the West Fork goes under HWY 169 where people fish a lot. I talked to the DNR on Sunday and he said there were still people fishing there for some walleyes. He didn’t say if anything was biting or not. As Old Bear said, U can go upstream from that 4 miles or so to the town of Rutland to the dam there. I fish the East Fork and it’s fairly high so I’m guessing the West will probably be moving pretty quick too.

    Congrats! I went out Tuesday while it was snowing and shot my first limit in my life (with my mutt lab/border collie cross). She’s really caught on this year. She locked up twice on birds which she’s never done before. I’ve had days where I gotten 2 but never got 3. I also missed a few too. I was pretty stoked so I can’t imagine shooting a triple. Well done!

    As of the last time I was out and saw our food plot of turnips, it hadn’t been touched much yet either. They hit the greens decently in October but they haven’t went for the actual turnip yet. I think besides the little cold snap we had in November, the weather hasn’t been bad enough for them long enough to go after the turnips yet. I say they’ll get to them whenever the weather turns and other food is scarce.

    I think you’ve got it covered pretty well with taking off Nov. 6-16. You should have see plenty of action.

    Does anyone know when the DNR makes their decision on whether to keep the anterless season for this year or not?

    I believe July 10th

    Thank you DGorman

    The discussion is about deer numbers and shooting deer by size/age only refers to bucks. Does are are what control the deer numbers so that won’t work as far as the population goes. Now if you’re looking for more quality mature bucks then absolutely shooting bucks by size and age would help. The downfall with that is once you’ve shot the deer it’s dead and walk up to it and think it’s not old enough, it’s too late whereas fish you just throw back and they go back on their way.

    To answer the first question, it is not too late to plant a food plot. I’ve planted beans in one of our plots on the 4th of July and the beans did fine. Lets face it we’re really not looking for 60 bushel beans to feed the deer. We’ve also planted a turnip mix the end of July/early August and the deer will hit the greens in the beginning of bow season and paw out the turnips in the late season. Now to answer the second question you’re going to need a clearing for a plot. Without sun I can’t think of anything you could put in a food plot that would grow in the shade unless they have something new out there that I don’t know about yet.

    Yes I totally agree I’m only seeing one side. I guess what I think needs to happen is the antlerless season should stay for some counties and be eliminated for the other counties that have been hit hard. I’m not sure if they’ll be open to that or not? I think if it comes down to eliminate it completely or let it stand, i think it will stand only because as stated before agriculture is what runs this state so I believe government will side with the farmers.

    I’ve hunted the January doe season for the last 4 years and haven’t noticed any bit of a decline in numbers so obviously I’m not at all for shutting down the antlerless season. I’ve seen all the damage to the crops of the farmers’ groud that I hunt and totally see why the farmers want more does taken. Agriculture is what runs this state so I believe the farmers are going to have the upper hand in this situation.

    I haven’t ran back lines for about 3 years but when I did I used 80lb braided line. I know it was probably overkill, but I never had a broken line. I also didn’t use sinkers.

    I don’t think they’ll completely cut the doe rifle season. They may reduce the amount of tags that the landowner gets but won’t eliminate it completely. I’ve hunted that season for the last 4 years and have not seen a decrease in the deer numbers there (Lucas,Wayne). I’m not saying that other counties weren’t hit harder, and the ones that were probably won’t get as many depredation tags.

    I agree with Asgrow. Getting a chainsaw for occasional use I’d stick to something cheaper. I have a Stihl for cutting my firewoood and have no complaints. It’s dependable and cuts fast. I don’t have any experience with a Husky, but I’m sure they sell a good saw too.
