I went to Academy this weekend and found again bare shelves with few guns in the rack. I was talking with the man behind the counter about the times we live in. He told me they have all there semi-auto guns locked up along with high cap clips. He said he thinks it wont be long before they are back to normal and can sell them again. What does this say about Academy? Im not happy about this but I am sure they had some pressure from somewhere to do this. They may have to be on my list not to buy from along with Dicks. They have been going down hill since K-mart bought them out last year.

You are right. Sound like the future is bleak. The only course you have is to get a bioligist who can get your club more doe tags if your area needs them. They will do that if it is needed. We did it years ago when we had doe days. The only problem you may have is getting the rest of the club to buy into it. Good luck.

A comment titled: Sorry in response to a report titled: Camera stolen

You need to post some pictures at the store in Wilmer and Richard Whites store on 1056 and 10. Put your phone number and see what happens. I use to hunt off of 1054 and had two stolen from me over 5 years. I caught one, he had a stand on the property line overlooking one of my fields in direct sight of the cam that was stolen. His mistake was that he was on my side of the fence. He had his stand chained up in the tree. I call the police they did there report and said dont expect anything to come of this. So I cut the tree down and took the stand. Wrote a note that said stand for my camera. He came back and tore up the note and that was it. Good luck.

I use to believe in the system. Now im not so sure of our voting system. This last election sealed the deal with me. I dont think we will ever have another fair election. Media, fraud and plain our right lies. Did I say fraud. :)

It good to see a Gun company go on the offensive instead of laying low hoping their company will survive. We need more of this.

A comment titled: clover in response to a report titled: Deer Feed Question

re-read my post. I never said it would die. It does not grow good in the summer. It will maintain thats all. It will hold its own but if you get alot of pressure on it then it will not come back good until fall. I should know we have had it on 6 acres of food plots for the last 4 years. Planting in the shade has its own problems in the fall when the leaves cover the plot.

A comment titled: Managment in response to a report titled: THE NEW AREA 4

If he sees that many does and no bucks he needs to shoot some does. A good population of deer is 30 per square mile. He had nine in one field. You need to try and get to (but you will never get there) two does for every buck. That is why you leave this to the Wildlife Managers that get paid to do this. They will make the proper call. I know of alot of places that will not shoot does and have them everywhere but wont listen to the Wildlife Managers. They dont see big bucks. Too much competition for food. They only complain about not seeing big deer. When clubs finally decide to change this rule and kill does they see big bucks again in as few as two years.

A comment titled: clover in response to a report titled: Deer Feed Question

I use whitetail institute clover. Durana clover is also good. Both wil come back year after year with only lime, fertilizer and mowing. This will save money. Clover does not grow in the summer. It will stay alive but does not do well in the heat of summer. It is spring when clover is at its best. The pea's are good but if you dont have alot of land to plant they will eat it up to fast and then your done. American Joint Vetch (Aeschynomene americana L.) will come back when deer eat it. It is great for drought and high heat. The hotter the better for this make the plant sweeter. You will see deer in the plot in the middle of the day eating it mid summer. You will hate to till this up in september because of all the deer sign. A freeze will kill Joint vetch not a frost. Lab Lab and Alyce clover grow well in the summer also and can take deer feeding pressure and come back.
Mineral sites are good also. Anything you can do will help.
Then you will have to let the little ones walk. Good luck.

Almost forgot the most important part of a food plot. Lime and Fertilizer. Test your plots to see what you need. You may be suprised. I had one last year that had a ph of 4.8. I spent alot of money on seed and fertilizer for nothing. Nothing grow. The test showed I needed lime and nothing else. Still working on this one.

A comment titled: summer plots in response to a report titled: Deer Feed Question

Sorry but summer plots are very important for a healthy herd. More important than winter plots for bucks rack growth and fawn production and growth. I split my plots up. Half of them have Whitetail clover that all I do is lime, fertilize and bushhog. Should last for 7years. 4 years so far. The other I plant in the summer joint vetch with either lab lab or alyce clover. September 1st I will till and replant the summer plot for winter. In two weeks it is growing great again. (if we get rain)
Deer do not sit in one place and eat all there food. They like to keep moving so anything you can do to help them including protein feeders will help. Dont worry about putting minerals on the ground deer eat dirt all the time. I wish I could post a video of what I grow in tangiphoa parish around Amite.

I think you already know what your club needs to do. To get support get the area wildlife manager in the and have him guide your club in the right direction. Hint, shoot does and if you think you shot enough shoot some more. :)

You rode your bike through once why not just do that. Im sure you would have less hunting pressure back there with the road closed. It will also help you get in shape or stay in shape. I think I would like it.

Dollar General is the one. It doesnt matter they are still holding guns and clips that they could sell to us in their vault.

We need a website to list all the anti gun buisness. Why cant we go on the offensive. I need a list and I will stand my ground for what I believe. It has to be legit. I already have a few on my list.

A comment titled: Summer-Winter in response to a report titled: Deer Feed Question

In the spring I dump the corn out of my feeders to get rid of coons. I put soybeans in my feeders all summer. You wont find a better feed for you feeder. Coons and birds dont eat it so you dont need to feed as much. Up to 32% protein and the deer will love it. Deer need 18% protein to product their best racks and for doe milk production.

I have one field in Whitetail institute clover year around and the other I rotate summer American jointvetch and mix with lab lab. They tear this up. In the winter I plant in this one plot with a mix of clover trinnical, turnups and rape.

Winter I go back to corn in my feeder along with rice brand on the ground. Winter deer need carbs.

I am in the process of making a mineral feeder but am not sure what I will put in it yet.

I do have mineral sites. I buy 100 lbs of trace mineral salt, 50 lbs of rock salt, 50 lbs of di-calcium phospate. I mix equal portions and it works great and deer love it. I normally mix in a bucket and fill 5 lb coffee cans to freshen up my sites.

I have been doing this for the last 20 years and the more I do the better it gets.

Good luck

A comment titled: K-mart in response to a report titled: Academy is on our side?

I was in the Hammond store last October looking for some food plot seed. I asked the salesman if he had anymore seed because the shelves were bare. The salesman told me he wanted to order two weeks before so he would not run out but the new owners k-Mart will not let them until stock got real low and seasonal items cant be reordered. Seed was a seasonal item. He was able to order some more but was completely out of stock long before the order came in. Not hearing anything about the buy out, I asked another person at the store in Covington and the girl dropped her head and said it was true. She wasnt happy about it.
