This is a GREAT deal in SC. I have been on the NRA State Funds committee (NRA Foundation / "Friends of NRA") , having the pleasure to approve grants submitted by the SC Dept. of Conservation for this youth hunt. 50-70% of the NET proceeds derived from the "Friends of NRA" banquets held in the state stay right here in the state of SC. for these types of programs. If ANYONE is interested in becoming involved, contact your state's NRA Field Rep.
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.
