I had an invitation to come and help do a controlled burn on some crp last weekend in southern MN, but with all the rain, the decision was made to hold off as the grass was too wet. I'm sure there's certain set dates in which the burn must occur so as not to interfere with nesting and broods. The next time I talk with owner I'll ask about it. There were a good number of pheasants on this property last year, as well as all other forms of wildlife, but not too many deer. There's an interesting backstory on the land. It was marginal land and under some government program (not sure if MN DNR or a federal farm agency), the government agents came out and blew holes in the ground with dynamite to create wetland habitat(this was 45 years ago give or take). Now there is a slough surrounded by crp grass. Good spots for ducks or pheasants.
