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.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
