    the thing that really concerns me about this season is I do not see road kill pheasants. I go to a lot of meetings around the state and I just don't see them.

    [QUOTE=mlmich@pldi.net;252740]So it is ok to be "grouchy" at a hunter who asks permission to hunt, because you are having a bad year. Ok, (I get it) take it out on the hunter. That is so not ok. ...

    It is a mark of maturity. When it is dented it is getting close to being mature. When corn is mature it starts to dry down and when it is "dry enough" it will be harvested.

    When we had Huns we mostly grew small grains with a little corn, now it is corn and beans and a lot of grass has turned into corn and beans. I wish I knew what the reason for their decline is.

    Nobody wants to combine corn at 25% moisture because the shrink from the moisture loss is a lot and the cost of drying will be significant. Under 20 is almost a must and 17 would be a lot better. ...

    For what it is worth, I just cut some 2nd cutting alfalfa and came across a couple of broods. 7 in the biggest one. I did release 100 hens this spring so maybe that is paying off.
