Beef', you make the claim to being an "old wise" hunter... from the looks of your grammar and communication skills I am not convinced you've even made it through high school. Congratulations on figuring out the internet!
Seriously, thanks to all who had constructive input in this thread. Now that I've dipped to this low level, I won't be posting in it anymore.
Even though the 270/elk debate is great and worthwhile, this thread is turning into a slug fest, so I'm locking it before it really turns ugly.
If you all want to try again in a new thread, fine by me. I'll say this though, while I have no problem with people disagreeing and even having heated discussion, I will not tolerate board members disrespecting other board members. Period.
If you want to see how witty you can be slamming people, there are plenty of other places on the 'net to do just that. However this isn't one of them.
If you have questions about the rules, read them here, otherwise let us move on.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
