  1. I would consider invasive plants like australian phragmites much easier to grow then fussy natives. Kidding of course but I have ovisosly considered it myself due to its cost and duribilty it would be hard to beat of your goal is to make solid screen cover fast. But obviously their are many other eco friendly reed and switchgrass types. Right now I do a winter mowing on my natiive golden rod then a light disking. it's nearly 6' tall right now and the deer seem to love it as edge cover. If you take the thuway down twards dunkirk they are using a type of hybrid willow for snow fence it's thick and grows fast seems like it would be great but again water is key.. One thing I found is don't mow around new tree bare root plantings add a shove of wood chips and let the grass grow around it. It helps shade and hold moisture longer in the hot sun. I have also taken bare root trees from the DEC stock in the spring and planted them in 1 gallon containers baby them all summer then plant them in the fall with about 10x more success rate but also more work digging a hole. But what the heck do I know I still have a buck tag and frozen fingers typing this.. But to enjoy the habitat improvements as much as the hunting and have seen benifets to all wildlife.

    I wish everyone on here would just shoot the first 4pt they see and go home for the season. I'm sick of competing with guys that work as hard as I do to shoot mature deer. .. I support QDM, but honestly if you wanna shoot a 4pt and go home and watch football the rest of the season that's great one less guy in the woods to shoot the buck I'm after! Unfortunately too many good ol boys treat deer like the enemy and try to exterminate them with total disregarded for laws or managment. Tags are plentiful and ECO are spread so thin in my area it just makes it easy.

    I was down to 2 hunts left for bow. I chose not to hunt last weekend and let the property rest. Had perfect conditions for a stand I havint sat in for 3 weeks. This guy came in solo but on a mission had to give him a grunt to stop. He gave me a 15yd shot he didint even flinch he walked another few steps and tipped over ..whew!! Good luck to all that are still in pursuit.
