    Unfortunately my cocklebur too is measured in acres. I will definitely be obtaining the use of a large boom sprayer to use next summer when they come back up. I may not have much other natural moist soil plants after I spray a couple times, but hoping it is only a one year setback of hunting.

    If you hit it with broadleaf killer like 24d should allow grasses to come. You would lose your smartweed but wild millet might find its way. Could spray and then disc a couple of weeks later and then broadcast jap millet right after a good hard rain.

    Not sure if that is the right order and timing but seems you could get your cake and eat it too if you can coordinate all that.

    Good luck

    Too far of a drive just for that satisfaction, brotha! :l

    You pretty optimistic you’re gonna be able to hunt most of the season this year? Here’s to hoping so.:tu

    I feel like I will be able to hunt some, but how much is up in the air. One day of hard activity wipes me out for days.

    Tell me about it, Ol' man I assume.

    Couple pic's of me sweating my Derrier off in the 110 deg F heat index, this month. The Pump project took 5 days Repairing grease lines and putting up a trash blockage fence, I had lot's of company that pondered their options.
