Then came Silent Spring and feeding the world got very complex. Today around here we have black flags flying around the cropfields as warnings that Dicamba has been mixed with the usual Glyphosate when sprayed on genetically modified ("Round Up Ready') soybeans and corn. Farmers, not environmental whackos, are suing one another because of Dicamba drift.
All this because of the development of herbicide resistance in weeds. Another rather frightening way to fight such resistance is to use compounds that stop photosynthesis completely. This is what we call "Double Knock" where Glyphosate goes on first, followed in a few days by a Paraquat "burn down' before seeding. Now there is talk about genetically modified wheat. So field weeds like pigeongrass, wild mustard, and pigweed have almost disappeared and seem to have taken our good dove hunting with them. Guess I'm just a worry-wart, but it has dampened by urge to hunt those wonderful little gamebirds that used to be seen by the hundreds in the wheat stubble and come to my waterholes every evening during the late summer and fall.

Hmmm....

Pigweed is the most noxious weed on Planet Earth.

You still have butterflies? Few insects around here anymore and the insectivorous birds have about abandoned my 26-ac. woodlot. Cliff Swallows and Barn Swallows quit nesting on my house and barn. Now half the soybeans are planted with neonic coated seeds. Really deadly stuff that also gets into the leaves and pollen.

Well said, Stan-you might as well have quoted the late Nash Buckingham. Sure wish we had a legal dove season here in MI- went out yesterday afternoon for barn pigeons, cut 44 acre field of Winter Wheat- doves all over the farm area, and the smallish pond holding water in the corner also was hosting about 30 Canadas-they skedaddled when I shot the first "shitty-bird"- I tracked a few high incomers from my hide- I need to get a swiveling camo seat, as very few incomers follow a straight line-- and I prop up the dead ones in the stubble for decoys- No law against tracking a dove or even a duck or goose in flight, just can't shoot- doves, probably never see the ban lifted in MI in my lifetime, ducks and geese in October-although the best hunting for waterfowl hereabouts in always in early Nov.

Michigan….no dove season because that’s illegal, but you can legally buy and smoke all the marijuana you want. Go figure, seems a little bit whacky, eh.

Urge to hunt may get sated up here as it looks like Canada will open up next month. Hope the Covid Delta variant (mutation?) does not hinder that plan.
