It gives bowhunters more opportunity to get out and hunt. It's perfect if you have a buddy who owns more that 5 acres in the city. They were wise to conduct a managed hunt as compared to all out hunting in the city. Sounds like they're doing it the right way.
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.
