Farmers that live in around State Game Lands thru out the State, some how do a contract with the PGC to Plant Different things on the SGL fields that are plantable....They plant corn, wheat, buckwheat, soybean and so forth...
As time goes along thru the summer, it either rains like mad like we had this past summer or rains here and there and we have drought conditions but just enough rain to keep those things the farmer planted to grow to harvest...
When Harvest time comes, Farmer goes in and looks over the Corn and Soybeans and decides if there is to much Moisture content in it or just the right amount for picking and storing....
When the Moisture content is at the right place, the farmers go and pick the corn or soybean... it then Stores better for them to use as animal feed and does not mold on them that they have to trash it and take a lose!
Sometimes, that moisture content can take till into December/January to get to the right point, other times, BAM it is at the right point in Mid to end of October!
Now, also you have to remember that an agreement is made by the PGC with the Farmer who wants to Farm the land on SGLs....the Farmer Has to let so much crop on the SGL as Critter food for the Wild critters!
Might that be what your seeing?
And why even be upset about corn growing on State Game Lands??
You can Hunt all you want in those fields!
