I started my 12 year daughter applying this year. If she stays healthy and still has the desire, she should be able to hunt them in the next 20 years or so.
I have a friend who drew both goat and sheep this year in Colorado and it was his first year in the draw lottery. In Colorado you have have 3 preference points to get into the lottery for rams, goat and moose.
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.
