Well I didn't know who to talk to about this since not many people understand my interest/healthy obsession [;)] of hunting. But I have been thinking about this for the last week or so, and it seems I have a bit more initiative/interest in to make the practice of QDM happen on the land me and my buddy will be hunting on for bow season.
I don't mean this to sound like I'm the good guy or anything like that, that's def. not my intent, but I seem to have a lot more of an interest of wanting to do out plots the right way, lime,fertilizer. (i realize we should of "limed" last fall to plant now, but last fall we were lucky to be set up in time for the season lol!) Anyways, he just wants to till the land, and put the seed down and call it a day. As i read more I know the lime will not be completely broken down until a good 4 months or so after applying, and now I think the best option for us, and the best way to not waste our money would be to sacrifice putting the plots in this year (as much as i want to put em in now! [:(] without being fully ready, and lime now to be fully prepared next spring to have the lime in, get the right fertilizer picked out etc.. and he won't commit to this idea or, a weekend or day to actually get the plots done the way he wants to. He'll go up north instead, or something else when we have already made plans.
He is the reason why i can hunt that land, so I feel bad disagreeing with him, and I don't want to get into a big argument over this with him, but I don't have the money to just throw into this and hope it works, I want it to succeed and I want to do it the right way the first time, Idk, it's just kind of frustrating with all that has happened in the last few weeks and now he just wants to do the quickest route and expect it to work perfect. I'm really almost tempted to start going door to door and try to make some connections with local farmers and get a new project that I have control over. Like I said, I don't mean that to sound selfish or like im doing the right thing, I was just looking for some advice on what to do, and i know a lot of you guys have a lot more experience in this field than i do. Sorry this was long, i hope its legible lol! Thanks for taking the time to read it!
Them Darned ol' deer.
