    There is a lot of unplanted corn thru out the midwest ,don't worry if they plant a short season corn there will still be plenty .

    If'n you remember last year about this time down along Rt 3 you were lucky to find dry road let alone corn in the ground and it still worked out fairly well. If they don't have it planted most of the clubs don't either.

    Hopefully they will let some of the moist soil plants grow instead of plowing them up to get a half arse corn crop. Just my 2 cents

    Don't you know that you can only shoot ducks over flooded corn :nutz :dv Ducks don't like smartweed, buttonbush, barnyard grass, or beggar's tick. Seriously though, it would be nice to see a mix out there to provide a little more long-term forage.
