Pheasants Forever Seneca County Chapter President June meeting was called to order by President Mario Livojevic.

  • Reports on Habitat projects in Seneca County included the Redfox Wildlife area and the Kelbley Wildlife area. The wind breaks at both wildlife areas were managed; numerous wire guards were replaced on young pines, also some pine trees were replaced. Maintaining grassland for wildlife required eliminating burdock and some other weeds, Fred Smith sprayed in May and Don Hunter will do a follow up spot spray.
  • There was a long discussion about a raffle as a fund raiser. Details are to be worked out for a ten gun, gun raffle.
  • The Youth Sporting Clay Shoot that is free to any youth seventeen years of age or younger and any adult that brings a youth that participates is to be held Sunday  September 20th details are to be posted on WWW.SenecaCountyPheasantsForever.org  
  • The upcoming Seneca County Fair was discussed and Pheasants Forever will have a laser shot trailer available free for youths in the evening and we will help with the youth archery trailer.  
  • It was decided to order Pheasants Forever T-shirts and have available to the public to purchase at a reduced cost at Pheasants Forever events.
  • Pheasants Forever Wildlife Biologist Dustin Lamoreaux was not in attendance but had been recently assisting landowners with planting habit and food plots. Anyone interested in information on planting grass buffers, quail buffers, wind breaks, Pheasant SAFE programs, food plots, and information on financial assistance that is available can contact Dustin at 419-551-5505. Research by Iowa State University has shown that if just 10 % of a field is converted to prairie strips, nitrogen loss will be reduced by 80 %, phosphorus loss will be cut by 90 %, and sediment loss will drop by 95 %. Overall, 5,353 pounds of soil per acre will be kept in the field instead of washed downstream. The reasons the strips can return so many benefits are manifold, but, in part, deep-rooted native perennials add organic matter to soils, prevent surface runoff, and result in better water retention and filtration.
  • The next meeting will be 6:30 pm Tuesday July 7th, at W. Twp. Rd 110 Tiffin, OH. Anyone interested in learning more about Seneca County Pheasants Forever are welcome to attend and can call 567-278-1551 for more information.
