Like most years, clearing trails of deadfalls and over hanging brush is a lot of work but necessary. This year we didn't have too many deadfalls or uprooted trees but due to the heavy spring snow storms there were a lot of small trees and brush bent over the trails that needed to be cut. Mowing with the brush mowers went pretty well this year and as of last Saturday all 8.75 miles of trails have been cleared and mowed. Saturday evening I rested and watched the deer trying to find something in what appears to be a failed food plot. I was treated to a wonderful Sunday morning view as the sun came up over the trees.

DeadEye - Any production on your apple trees this year? Looks like a couple branches might be drooping with some apple weight.

Smokey HB, Yes, a lot of apples this year. In addition to the apple trees I planted, there's an abundance of acorns, plums, and berries. Bodes well for all types of wildlife. Some white oaks are dropping now but the red oak acorns are holding tight. My guess is deer will be holding tight near the mast crop and not venturing out into the fields for a while.

Happy to hear you're getting a lot of production. Had a lot of acorns falling last weekend as I walked the woods.
