I’ve mowed several laps around the edges. Man, that millet is thick. Waist high and makes a thick layer on the ground after mowing. Is this a problem? Tons of little seeds, just not laying exposed in the open.
My partner in this endeavor is worried as we haven’t spotted any doves though we’re seeing lots of other birds and critters. One guy suggested we burn the whole field which seems somewhat drastic, not to mention the news headlines of “Dove hunters start forest fire”.
Any thoughts? Hay rake? Chill and get more ammo and decoys? Declare defeat and try sunflowers next year?
Anyone seeing doves this far north? Maybe our good neighbors to the south have fed those doves so much, they are too fat and lazy to come visit.
Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.
