Projects completed, multiple fall hunting seasons are now open and the weather is changing quickly. We’re in the best part of the year and it feels great!
We really hope to see some pics from the field this year coming in from all of you. Please feel free to share them to our Facebook page. Especially if you’re spending time at one of the public land locations where we completed projects. We’ll certainly share them for you so that we can all enjoy them.
Food Plots Looking Great
Wagon Train Lake was planted in clover and alfalfa with the last mowing taking place in August. I visited the plot a couple weeks ago and it looked great. The other plot we did at Conestoga Lake and it was planted in a mix from Association Sponsor, Kaup Forage & Turf. That plot consists of rapeseed, turnips, clover, ryegrass, chicory and radish. We may have even noticed a treestand next to the plot location while planting. Best of luck to whomever owns that stand!
You’re Invited to Our Monthly Socials
Our monthly socials, which take place on the second Wednesday of each month, are where we discuss and plan projects. In addition, planning for our annual sportsmen’s night takes place. We’re already working on project ideas for 2020. Not to mention, we’re working hard putting together plans for our 6th Annual Lincoln Sportsmen’s Night.
The sportsmen’s night will be January 11, 2020. That evening will be here before we know it and we very much look forward to seeing you all there. It will be held at the Pla Mor Ballroom again this year. The ballroom offers plenty of room to move around! You need the space to have a great night of winning items and conversing with other like-minded people. If you’ve never been to one of our sportsmen’s nights, you’re missing out! There are many raffles, auction items and of course a lot of great stuff for the kids to take home. Don’t forget about our famed gun wall!
Come join us at one of our monthly socials. We post them as events on our Facebook page. There you will find the location and time. See what we’re all about and decide if you too would like to be a part of our organization. It feels good to know that you’re working on conservation projects on public lands so that anybody can use and enjoy them.
