Hot Plots

Beyond the occasional dove field or corn patch, many Mississippi hunters tend to shy away from summer plantings as a wildlife management activity. Who could blame them? Summer plantings can be far more challenging to manage than winter plots because of oppressive heat and weed pressure in the South, not to mention the added expense. But these hunters are missing out.
