I'm confused what you are "sore" about?
Haha.. Sure !!
You realize grizzly Island habitat is 90% fragmite. Yeah its invasive but it's here and it's what they live in. Why is it now all of a sudden a problem and needs to be burned in nesting season? Why wasn't anything done about it these last 10 years. Still no answers back about the CWA brood ponds that have sat empty for 3 years now. I wonder who paid for the helicopters last year when they sprayed the frag in the hunt areas and just let it sit and rot.
Like I said....CWA shouldn’t do anything out there, call them up and tell them! Don’t want those pesky biologists trying to make anything better for the future. Conspiring rich people probably paid for the helicopters to ruin the fragmite habit so they could shoot more mallards elsewhere.
I think it’s just the nature of refuges. Units only hunt good for a certain amount of time, there’s a sweet spot. It gets burned, dead for a couple years, new growth after that and it hunts good, then it gets overgrown and doesn’t produce as well and the process has to be restarted
I understand . They shoulda done something long ago
spot on. As someoe who hunts mendota 2 days a week most of the yr I’ve seen this happen so many times . Good spot for 5-6 yrs and then it gets disced. Burned ,ect .
Not sure about phragmites.
One way they deal with cattails is in the fall they spray herbicide from a helicopter and than in the spring they will burn.
