Time to Learn

In just a few minutes some gents from Michigan will be joining me for a tour at The Proving Grounds.  I really enjoy the opportunity to visit with other deer managers.  I always pick up a tip or two and hopefully my guests gain some helpful information as well.  I’m a huge believer in the Solomon’s statement found in Ecclesiastes 1:9,

“What was will be again,
what happened will happen again.
There's nothing new on this earth.”

However, I do believe there are improvements of how we deal with problems such as weed control.  For example, my family had a very large vegetable garden when I was a child.  My sisters, parents, and I spent days hoeing and pulling weeds by hand.  I don’t think I knew the word herbicide.  Very, very few folks thought about passing a legal buck, and harvesting a doe wasn’t even legal where we hunted.

I enjoy learning and I want to be a better deer manager and more efficient with my time and resources.  I would like to see more of the mature bucks that live on my property.  If my only source of knowledge comes from my personal observations and experiences, I won’t come close to expressing my potential or realizing my dreams.  That’s why I really like sharing with other deer managers.  I’ll gladly give information in hopes of gaining some back.  The gents from Michigan are probably facing the same hurdles as I am, but may have learned a better way to cross them.  It’s time for the tour.  It’s time to learn.

Growing Deer together,
