Wednesday Night's Show: Forest Food Plots

CFA-On-The-Air: From the Forest
Wednesdays 6PM - 7PM

Wednesday Night's Show
On this coming Wednesday's show we'll be talking about forest food plots. Although conventional food plots - including cover crops - can be extremely beneficial for wildlife, they also can be expensive to implement. Many of us have a few acres of woods or knows someone that does. There are a few techniques you can implement or CFA can help out with that can improve wildlife habitat. Some say these techniques can improve the average forest of 200 lbs. of forage to 2000 lbs. of forage. Tune in at 91.3 FM WIOX ROXBURY or stream online at to learn more.

"Taking the gun for a walk." That's what I've been doing. Sometimes you wonder why you're lugging this rifle all over the woods after not seeing one deer. But then you realize, isn't this part of it too; just being out there.  Read more

The day after receiving federal approval, the Constitution Pipeline sent letters threatening to use eminent domain authority against dozens of landowners who are reluctant to allow the 124-mile natural gas pipeline across their land.

The pipeline, which has been in the works for two and a half years, will run from Pennsylvania through New York's Delaware, Schoharie, Broome and Chenango counties. It received conditional approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Tuesday, Dec. 2.

On Wednesday, Dec. 3, the pipeline’s law firm, Saul Ewing, began playing hardball with landowners who have not accepted the pipeline’s offer of compensation in exchange for pipeline access.  Read more
