Just wanted to thank everyone for weighing in. As JFG mentioned above... it is a "labor of love" for me and having a honey hole on your own farm is worth more than MANY guided trips. You guys talked me into giving NRCS, DU, & USFWS another shot. I'm gonna go by the local USFWS office within the next week and discuss programs with them. If I strike out there... I will give the NRCS another shot, then DU. If none in my area are cooperative or interested... I will likely tackle it on my own. I'm a process guy at heart. If I'm able to pull it off and even if it only attracts a decent number of woodies... it will be worth it to me. The way I look at it as there is no monetary value that can be placed on time in a blind with buddies while watching God's sunrise and birds (even if just a few) dropping into decoys at first light. Appreciate the input and will keep everyone posted on progress.
