I truly wish I had more time to blog during deer week, but the phone doesn’t allow it. Regardless of that. Here’s something I need to take time to get out there as I’ve heard often this fall the corn needs to come off to give more access to the deer. Well I’m not an agronomist but here’s the latest stats as of the beginning of the week. I know the graph doesn’t copy perfectly but it shows the corn harvest is catching up to average. Now I don’t know how much corn was planted 5 or 10 years ago so being “almost done” with 2x the amount of corn on the landscape doens’t help much. But compared to last week(335) and the average (56) the corn is coming down.
