Plan your duck season

Thanksgiving weekend closed out the short, teaser sessions that primed the valves and got every waterfowl hunter excited about bagging a limit of ducks in the Carolinas’ flooded country. For the first week or so of December, hunters and the hunted get a little break, but the remaining portion of the waterfowl season will arrive in little time at all. Duck hunters need to regroup, plan and prepare for their last hurrah for the best hunting of the year.

Living creatures, whether of animal or plant descent, are sensitive organisms with unique requirements for life. Down to the cellular level, all living things require certain chemicals at opportune moments to function and for long-term prosperity. Food plots carry a unique set of biological and chemical needs. In order for wildlife managers to grow a successful plot, adequate chemicals must be available for the plants at the right moment.Read More...

Soil moisture is No. 1

Plants are simple organisms with basic needs to fuel a laundry list of chemical reactions that sustain life. Sunlight, air and nutrient availability rank high in the cycle of life, and few plants will survive very long when any of these components is lacking. Yet the simple compound of two hydrogen molecules bonded to one oxygen molecule, also known as water, is crucial for sustaining life. Food plots need adequate soil moisture to get off to a good start. Read More...
