Quality Deer Habitat and Best Food Plots Start Now

Quality Deer Habitat and Best Food Plots Start Now

Many sportsmen’s favorite dee habitat management practices correlate with their favorite hunting season, such as planting fall food plots for deer season.

However, other habitat management practices performed during the off season are likely more important for meeting the needs of their favorite wildlife species.

Landowners interested in managing their forestland for wildlife and revenue should use the spring season to plan and execute timber harvests. Timber thinning improves residual tree vigor and promotes stand health. Thinning creates openings in the forest canopy that allow sufficient sunlight to reach the ground, stimulating desirable plants that provide food and cover for many species of wildlife.

Disking native vegetation in unplanted fields and forest openings promotes favorable food and cover for both deer and upland game birds. Disking promotes desirable forbs (broad-leafed herbaceous plants) and legumes such as ragweed, pokeberry, and partridge pea.

Disking also improves brood-rearing cover for turkey and quail. Rotational strip-disking should be completed by the end of March to maintain food and cover in unplanted fields and forest openings.

Often, the most cost effective tool used in managing habitat in uplands is prescribed fire. Prescribed fire sets back plant succession and promotes favorable vegetation structure and composition for many species of wildlife.

Landowners and managers should work with a professional, such as a Registered Forester or wildlife biologist, to identify areas on their property where prescribed fire would be beneficial and can be safely applied.

The spring is a great time to implement habitat management for wildlife. For more information about habitat management, please visit www.mdwfp.com/habitat

Is Someone Lying About This Gun Confiscation Letter?

Is Someone Lying About This Gun Confiscation Letter?

Gun HoaxSurrender your guns, make them inoperable or sell them, but you can’t have them anymore or we’ll come to confiscate them and arrest you!

That sounds like something straight out of an Orwell novel, or maybe the oppressive playbook from overlords running Germany in the early 1940s. Right?

Supposedly, this paraphrased demand about assault rifles came in the form of a letter allegedly sent by the Connecticut State Police to state residents. The validity of the letter is being called into question, and our sister publication, Gun Digest, reached out to officials for some clarification.

Here’s what Gun Digest found out:

A letter apparently mailed from the Connecticut State Police to residents who attempted to register their “assault weapons” and “large capacity magazines” but missed the Jan. 1, 2014, deadline has gun owners across the Internet up in arms.

The validity of the letter, however, has been called into question.

A spokesperson contacted by Gun Digest for Connecticut’s Special Licensing and Firearms Unit said the letter was not sent from their office. And there are a number of news accounts and government documents that also question the letter’s authenticity.

According to an article on the New Haven Register website, Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy had announced plans for amnesty for gun registrations that arrived in the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) office after the Jan. 1 deadline.

In a Feb. 13 letter from the governor’s office to DESPP Commissioner Dora B. Schirro, Malloy advised clemency for firearms registrations received after the Jan. 1 deadline. The letter also stipulated the department’s discretion to accept tardy applications.

“Consistent with the Act, DESPP may choose to accept applications received after January 1, 2014, if the department has reason to believe that an applicant complied with the terms of the Act by attempting to submit the application on or before January 1, 2014, even if the application was not received by DESPP due to circumstances beyond the applicant’s control,” the letter from Luke Bronin, the general counsel to the Office of the Governor, read.

The commissioner of the DESPP agreed. According to a Feb. 14 letter, Dr. Dora B. Schriro wrote her department would accept the applications if it was believed an applicant attempted to submit before Jan. 1 or that it was received late due to circumstances beyond the applicant’s control.

The questionable letter set the online gun world on fire, with scores taking to social media to sound off. Given the controversial gun legislation that passed in Connecticut in 2013, the document touched a sensitive spot among firearms enthusiasts.

The letter also hit the internet just weeks after many news outlets reported thousands of Connecticut residents had failed to register their firearms.
