    Chestnuts?

    I had probably 60-80 nuts from a supposedly 15/16 american chestnut. this was probably 6 years ago. I put them all in a ziplock bag with some potting soil and moistened it. put them in the freezer best I remember. pulled them out in the spring and after a few weeks probably 80% had sprouted...

    Amendments #1 and #2 Results

    the left did a good job of selling misinformation on amendment 2 and the right did not even attempt to tell what the amendment was actually about. this amendment did nothing to legalize or make illegal abortions. It simply said that the judicial branch could not consider it a right. It was...

    No doves?

    I would disagree it does take the lazy out bag of wheat poured in anyones driveway and you could shoot limits all day long. baiting laws are to protect the species. most dont do dove fields because they require time and money and there is no guarantee. I could shoot way more doves with way...

    No doves?

    the difference is once that seed is on the ground thats it. if you can throw it out whenever you want no need to worry about it sprouting or other issues. basically it limits the seed to a certain amount per acre. what you can grow there is all the seed that you have to work with. plus it...

    No doves?

    Also with winter wheat thatch can be an issue. Burn it if you can to expose more bare ground. Or disk strips thru it can help. Millet is the best dove field I have ever done.
