The other theory on pelts is use a light fast explosive bullet that enters pinhole and blows up totally within, no exit wound. But if it does exit its gonna be nasty.
Often times one must remember that destruction on smaller animals is more from speed than other things. IE a heavy slow bullet will punch through. A light fast blows up. But a light bullet going slow may just poke through also.
Especially true shooting turkey with rifle. Speed, even with a FMJ, will destroy a lot of meat if not hit in that bobbing, constantly moving head....
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.
