Here some results of the labors
Closed out gates oct 14 and my crops have water now
Was debating letting water off slowly a ft or so
But then I think dont be a da and give up free water
So our crops are done
We dodged some major bullets and got adequate rain
We did flood the week of sept 10or so but as water dropped I caught it in the top of the ditch
We still have 5 weeks
Blinds are brushed
Water is perfect
Still pondering on what to do
Corn and seed heads are out of water but flood did knock down some milletlaying it in water
But I have water
First of month of season will be fun
And ALOT of food
Looks great DFS! Always fun following your annual progression-thanks for posting.
Keep the water. They will find plenty of food based on what i have seen from the prior pics.
Looks great! You are very lucky to not have flood losses this year. Seems dang near everyone in the eastern US had a difficult year managing habitat.
Yep, very true Clayton. Our corn struggled to make, then what did eventually got weedy .. then wind blown over to the point where families of coons, along with the deer pretty much ate the rest. So we let the nut sedge and panic grass go that was growing in it. Has turned out well because that and the managed moist soil areas look great. I’m fairly sure had we dewatered after all that flooding a lot of the m-s would have re-germinated.
Great looking habitat. Do you fertilize your Chiwapa? Thinking of doing that next year due to the fact we cannot draw down like we would prefer.
I do fertilize my chiwapa
