PLOT & PLAN. QDMA addresses the differences, balance and science between food plot options for deer when it comes to annuals and perennials. From clover to turnips, knowing which plants work best – and what work goes into them – will maximize productivity from a plot, and hopefully deer visitations.
POLLINATOR WEEK. Pollinator.org celebrates all the good things bees, butterflies and other pollinators do – from getting those food plots to grow, to helping account for a good portion of the world’s food. With an interactive map of events going on this week, the organization looks to get more people involved in knowing how the pollination process works
WMA HOLIDAY. The NDG&F reminds the public that fireworks are prohibited on the state’s Wildlife Management Areas. Additionally, WMA camping restrictions have been modified for the upcoming Independence Day holiday.
