February is a big month for deer managers.  The hunting season is over and it’s time to get back to work.  February is the best time to learn from last year, and prepare for next fall (it’s coming quick).  Scouting is a big priority this time of year.  It’s also time to pull, maintain and inspect our stands.  It’s time to check our food sources and see if we are planting enough to maintain a year round deer herd.  If your small grains are gone, you need to plant more next year.  They should hold until March, and your limited food plot space would be better served with something else unless you add more.

The ground is frozen in most of the midwest, and it’s the best time of year to bring equipment across wet areas for winter discing, timber harvest, habitat projects.  It’s a lot to keep track of, and our P&Y members get emails reminding them to stay on track.  A valuable tool.  This months P&Y video tip is comprehensive overview analyzing sanctuaries.  Learn the why’s and hows of one of the few timber projects anybody with a chainsaw can accomplish.
