Special Regulations Now in Effect on the Food Plots.

The food plots will now be non-toxic shot only.

Opening day will by special hunt drawing to provide a safer, more enjoyable hunt for hunters drawn.

September 2nd until the close of season will be back to open hunting.

 The native grass pasture on the area has been under patch-burn grazing for the last three years. In this system we have been burning 1/3 or the grass each spring to more closely mimic the traditional burning/grazing patterns of the historic tallgrass prairie. The patch burn this fall was conducted on the middle 1/3 and went well.  Cattle are now on the pasture and doing well. The West pond is still not to the normal level, but is high enough to run the stock tank behind the dam. The pond on the East side of the property looks pretty good and supports a healthy largemouth bass population.

Mulberry Creek is flowing again and has sunfish in some of the pools.
