    Just wanted to reach out and see what your alls winter plans are?

    Are you putting anything out right now, as far as mineral/salt/etc ?

    Hoping to do some walking here soon and look for sign from this past year. Also going to build another blind and some platforms to put them on.

    Anything else recommended would be great! Let the start of the 2019/2020 hunt begin!

    Re-fresh mineral sites, already spread some soil sulfur to drop ph in one plot, frost seed a bunch of chicory and more clover and mineral stumps. Mineral stumps worked extremely well last year, I go through the woods and cut any hackberry, redbud or smaller than 4" tree off around 18" and wait for it to re-sprout growth, those deer eat it up, 30% protein and the highest concentration of selenium that you can come by naturally.

    I've been dropping yellow polar every day the winds not howling or the snows not dropping. Actually the wind has helped me a lot with a few hang ups. Also I've been clearing up around the oak flats thinning out crowding maple.
    I ordered trees and have chestnuts from my Dunstun in the frig.. Ordered 70 dollars.worth of veggie seed and will be starting plants in March for transplants. As soon as we have a ground defrost I'll be digging holes for trees. I have a lot of them coming. Fruit tree and vine cutting will start soon.
    I bought seed for a few plots on sale in January clover. I will be buying mostly fall seeds later.
    I maintain hundreds of yards of brush pile fencing that gets worked on all.winter. I maintain it to a 5-6 ft height by hunting season. Reside a 9 yr old cardboard blind and perhaps add one more short blind platform.

    Not too busy...Oh and start buying my bagged lime.. 3 bags each week until spring these will maintain plots and start others, very low PH here. Before it's asked.. No bulk lime isn't feasible here.
