    The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) had its genesis within the Food Security Act of 1985. CRP offers a 10 to 15-year contract between the USDA and eligible land owners. The program provides a payment to the owner for enrolling the land in the program. The program’s objective is to take land that may be less productive, or land that is environmentally compromised and give it a natural makeover.

  • The Importance of Identifying Food Plot Weeds and Matching Herbicides to Your Plantings

    The Importance of Identifying Food Plot Weeds and Matching Herbicides to Your Plantings

    Many wildlife managers overlook the important step of identifying the problem weeds in their food plots and fields. These weeds need to be identified so that the following questions can be answered. What type of plants are my problem weeds? Are these weeds providing a benefit to the wildlife? What type of herbicide can I use to control them if needed? What forages can I plant that will allow me to selectively control the weeds without killing the food plot?

    Maine is one of the few places in the continental United States to allow moose hunting. However, to hunt moose in Maine you must draw a tag in the annual moose lottery.

I would like to share the story of a 2014 moose hunt.
