This year on the wildlife area many projects have been planned and finished. This year we sprayed and drilled about 300 acres back to native grass. The native grasses have come back nicely providing great cover for our wildlife. There is about 250 acres of drilled cover crop on the area. Although we did not get the rainfall we were hoping to, the cover crop still provides great food and cover options for the various wildlife. We burned about 120 acres to reset the natural succession of the native grasses and forbs and all those areas have responded nicely. With the water level down, it has created mudflats that we broadcasted cover crop and millet seed into that came up providing food for the various waterfowl that come in.
