Again this year grass cutting was done on a
weekly basis. The Club has two Riding lawn mowers, 1 John Deer
commercial mower, 1 pull behind mower connected to a tractor and two
push hand mowers. This
equipment is manned by a committee consisting of Frank Wright,
Charles Deering, Gardener Rising, Walter Gregg and Jerry Condren. A
special thanks goes out to this crew for making the Club a pleasant
place to come to.
The Pheasant Program got off to a great start
on September 21st. We have a total of 80 Club members in this years
program with 31 on a waiting list. The program is restricted to 80
hunters for safety reasons. This general program will run to January
15, 2004. After this date hunting is only allowed for pheasant
Program members who have purchased Package Birds. The final day for
all pheasant hunting will be February 17, 2004. The Club has
contracted for 1900 Pheasants to be delivered at given times for use
in this program.
The Fall Song Bird Banding Project is coming to
an end with the major migration of birds almost over. There was a
total of 167 birds banded and released for the fall banding period.
This brings the total to 524 birds banded on the 3F club property
for the year 2003. This Program will start up again about May 1st,
2003 for the 28th consecutive year. The planting of
wildlife crops that took place in June has worked out very well. The
wet summer encouraged growth which resulted in bumper crops of
sorghum and sunflowers.
Howard pond has again been a real problem for
fishing with the over abundance of Lilly Pads.
We area trying to get them under control but at the present
time losing the battle. The plus side is the ponds water level. It
is the highest ever for this time of year. If all goes well we
should be at the maximum elevation after the winter thaw.
