    not quite. maybe 75%. lots of native grasses and residual jap millet.

    JBK, this place has gone from a few woodies to 100s, plus teal, mallards, geese.

    scduck, I have yet to have beavers mess with the outlet, elbow side. On the other end, they generally leave it alone until the water is level with the drain, and they can hear/see the water leaving. In additon to the welded wire wrapped around the pipe, I put in hog panels and tpost around it, which helps with debris as well. I shoot a few each year to keep them in check.

    I've got the perfect spot for this, but no beavers.

    How many acres have you cleared/planted at this point?

    I wish I didn't have so many hobbies and worked less.

    Close to 2 acres I think, with 15 more to clear. My end goal is 10 and leave some of the rest in scrub brush (mostly willows, maple, a few oaks).
    It has been a lot of hard work, but fun too. With my son getting closer to hunting age, I will be doing machine work instead of by hand. Dozer next year to stump and grade.

    That's pretty damn impressive and very rewarding I'm sure.

    I might the suggestion that you consult an engineer and get a wetlands delineation before you pile a dozer in there, might save you a quarter million or two. Clearing by hand they don’t notice so much but a dozer they notice. They being the ACOE and NRCS.

    Looks good though

    without my notes, I think it was 100/lbs N per acre. Two batches, most was at tiller stage, and bit more N at preboot. I did Rex this year, 6/1 date

    SouthernDuck, good advice that I will follow up on. We have discussed before that flooded property due to a beaver dam is different than a natural wetland scenario. But big gov is gunna big gov

    Nice work. If it is not a delineated wetland, haul ass. If it is, good luck.
