not without prior permission from the agency that owns the property....and probably not then either.
"State game lands are public hunting grounds and lawful hunt-
ing and trapping are permitted during open seasons. To enable the
Commission to effectively manage and protect these invaluable
land holdings for this and future generations of hunters, trappers
and wildlife enthusiasts, the following activities are prohibited:
• Camp or use campsites.
• Contaminate, pollute or degrade groundwaters or surface waters
or any waterways.
• Graze or permit the grazing of domestic livestock; place or
maintain beehives or beekeeping apparatus.
• Solicit or place private advertisements, signs or posters.
• Plant, gather, cut, dig, remove or otherwise injure any plants or
parts thereof, including trees, shrubs, vines, flowering plants and
cultivated crops. (Mushrooms and fruits of berry-producing
plants may be picked.)
It might teach the PGC something. Lord knows they need the help.
This is what I have done in the past. Find private properrty and talk to the land owner abou it. If he is a farmer ask him to leave a few rows of standing corn by your stand. In return you either pay him for his loss or offer to work it off on the farm.
the PGC is not in the business of growing food plots. If someone want tos step forward and pay for all the seeding fertilizer and weed control on 1.4 million acres of game lands im sure they will listen. they create herbaceous openings that benefit ALL wildlife. "Food plots" as many hunters are referring to are brassicas, turnips etc.....the PGC plants clover, trefoil, warmseason grasses etc....a greater overall benefit
true beartrppr, but not in the sense that is though of on here......there is not fields and fields of brassicas or turnips.....usually is a mix that NWTF or QDMA supply/donates...what i meant was that the PGC doesnt go and buy hundreds of pounds of the popular "food plot" mixes ...."as seen on tv"
Yet more evidence hunters are lazy. sniffle...sniffle I can't pattern woodlot deer...sniffle...sniffle...I need food plots so I can know that my big buck will show up at 4:45PM...sniffle...sniffle hunting any other ways is too hard. sniffle....sniffle my buddy who hunts private ground over <s>bait</s> food plots always kills a buck...sniffle...sniffle it's not fair.
you are correct. but turnips and the like are never really a bad idea. they dont hurt anything at all. it's not like people are wanting to go in and plant invasive species that help one animal and hurt 20 others.
and don't take my smart remarks to heart. i'm just a goof most of the time.
