very little ground has been planted yet...very, very little...low or high ground. The problem is that crop insurance becomes void if crops are planted after a certain date, and in one of the counties I hunt, that date is coming up soon...5/25...then 5/31 in the other county. Beans are the next crop that gets planted after corn...prices suck...the idea of them taking their "prevent plant" crop insurance isn't such a bad thought, though it is barely a break even deal. Most of the farmers I know have not planted a single seed yet...very unusual...none of them have really ever seen this situation...wet out there this week again....Admittedly, I know nothing about farming, but to me high grounds will get planted and low/wet ground cannot be planted right now, which in turn means it will go to grass/cover which can only be a good thing for the birds. Am I correct in my thinking, or way off?
If people feel bad for Chris, and how he was treated, that is up to them...I hope nobody underestimates him; he is a very smart guy that can defend himself if he so chooses; he has posted here over 4,000 times. He decided, for some reason, starting in the late spring/early summer of 2017 to deviate from his normal mode here and chose to spread some wild, bombastic propaganda that many objected to, as it defied logic, scientific fact, and conventional wisdom. Then, once hunting season started, he quit posting here, and hasn't since. I am quite certain he was laughing his butt off at the controversy he played a role in creating here...the joke was on us, I guess He advertises here...maybe it made no sense to create a lot of chaos when he is looking for customers? Don't know. Like I said, he is a very smart guy, and has more than enough intellectual horsepower to accomplish whatever he wants...hey, differences of opinion are a fact of life, so are disagreements...but he promotes habitat and hunting, so he is an ally...Too bad he was bludgeoned a couple of years ago. He would be a great source of info now
