Who is Winning this War of Attrition?

Hog Wild— More Lessons Learned! By Ron Jolly In the summer 2012 issue of Gamekeepers I wrote a story entitled “HogWild.” In it I shared what my wife Tes and I have learned since feral hogs first began invading our east-central Alabama farm.

Woodland Makeovers

Prescribed Burns- an Old School Tool BY Coty Bennett Fire! Burning is a “primitive tool” used in the modern gamekeeper’s “bag of tricks.” Every year the mediation of hearing the John Deere fire up during the first weekend of planting is a hallowed tradition that never gets old to those of us who live the “gamekeeper lifestyle.” But for some, the […]

With Wolves at the Doors, Stick to your Guns
