Jeffrey Enery Center Wildlife Area News
The drought that we experienced last growing season kept precribed fire from being utilized on the area to create better upland bird habitat and to set back succession. Winter wheat has been planted and is sprouting in preparaion for the 2013 dove season. On area 2 turnips were seeded into a couple of fields for their annual youth deer hunt. The turnips did not sprout for several weeks however due to lack of moisture, so time will tell if they will have the opportunity to come up and offer an early winter food source for the deer.
The area also is shaping up to be a good year for upland birds, especially quail.
