In 1792, the first year of George Washington’s presidency, Robert B. Thomas created the very first Farmers’ Almanac, which was used to help struggling farmers improve their agricultural production yields as well as other things. 


No-till drilling devices are often available for short-term rental for land managers wishing to use them to plant food plots. Consider no-till drilling

Hunters are always looking for a new way to improve their opportunities. From planting fields of green to charring the woods with a routine prescribed burn, there are many ways to manipulate the land to improve conditions that are beneficial to wildlife.

Food plots are one of the chief habitat-management techniques that provide either a temporary or semi-permanent food source for wildlife throughout the year. The long list of variables required to fall in synch and produce a thick, lush plot are sometimes tough to manage. However, if land managers are willing to alter their planting procedures and incorporate no-till drilling methods, the benefits may actually outweigh the risks and leave a little bit of money in the bank. 


Banana water lily is a great aquatic plant to help jump-start a moist-soil management program. Get ducks and keep them

Each fall and winter, flooded areas along the eastern seaboard get bombarded by the annual migration of waterfowl, and duck hunters are always on the prowl for new ways to get more birds into shooting range. From new calls and revolutionary decoying devices to the various grain mixes planted in impoundments that are temporarily flooded, hunters are always going to the drawing board, devising plans to improve their hunting experiences. But the typical dry-land impoundment may not always be the best way to attract and retain a substantial portion of the migrating flock at the time when it matters most. 

For years, the typical agriculture field with perimeter dikes and a reliable water source has been the ideal setup to get a visit from the migrating flock. And no doubt, these dry-land impoundments can be super duck magnets if planted correctly and controlled effectively.  Ducks are suckers for fields flooded with carbohydrate-filled grains, yet, the majority of these impoundments only provide a temporary food source that often gets depleted quickly. And since they are only flooded for a short period of time, these fields are only important to ducks on a part-time basis, with a very limited grocery selection available.

The weather may seem very similar to December, but January is definitely a transitional month for outdoorsman around the Carolinas — especially the thousands of deer hunters out there. More hunters participate in deer season than all of the other game animals combined. But just because the season is over doesn’t mean the deer rifle should be retired to the gun cabinet. Hunters can continue hunting, targeting a different quarry with large white tusks in the front and a pair of country hams bringing up the rear. 


Plan your duck-hunting season so you don’t overpressure any areas; that will ensuring good hunting in future seasons. 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. 


Make sure to re-sample your food-plot soils to see if this year’s unusual rainy season has affected the soil composition. How to get the ‘wet’ out

For many Americans living in the southeast, the thought of building a modern-day ark was becoming a real possibility this year. The deluge soaked just about every place imaginable, threatening many communities with property damage, swollen rivers and recurrent, widespread flooding on almost a daily basis. 


Creating interest in hunting and other outdoors activities among youngsters could reverse the trend of spending less time in a deer stand and more in front of a game console. Love hunting? Promote it

Hunting has always been an important facet to American and human culture. Yet the history of wildlife in America could have led down an entirely different path. Since the impact of civilization is so massive, the nation’s forests, soils, water and wildlife is wholly dependent on human actions. As long as hunters and conservationists continue to conserve, manage and promote their natural resources, future generations should have a chance to enjoy what we enjoy today. The future of wildlife is in our hands, just as it has always been.

Over the past decade, annual rainfall totals have fallen well below their mark, leaving woodlands, grasslands and crop fields with a little less moisture than normal. But since early this spring, the faucet has been on, and drought is a very distant memory. For wildlife and hunters, it couldn’t have happened at a better time. Hunters can expect a unique experience this fall with an exceptional collection of animals roaming the woods.

A couple of days after August ends, dove season arrives for wing-shooters across the Southeast. With the exception of the Aug. 15 opening of deer season in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, the Labor Day dove pursuit marks the debut of hunting season for most hunters in the Carolinas.

Plants convert energy from the sun through chlorophyll and photosynthesis, but they must extract a unique elemental cocktail from the soil to produce strong roots, lush foliage and an overall successful crop.

Fertilizer application before an expected rain event is usually an excellent plan. Fertilizer is food-plot key

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.

Waiting for the proper soil moisture is more important than getting spring food-plot planting done within a certain time frame. 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.
