As long as we're discussing terrain terminology, could someone clarify the term CRP field. I know it has something to do with crop rotation, but is it a weed field left unplanted that particular year, or simply a crop field that may have beans one year, corn the next, etc....?
In the sense you are referring to where a field is planted one year and not the next or one crop then another. Framers do the to reduce the "Drain and Strain" on the fields. If they were to plant the same crop year after year their production would eventually slow and then halt, because certain crops use different nutrients to crow. After a few years would deplete those nutrients needed. Therefore by rotating crops they can achieve a greater length of time before the fields must be serviced.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
