Corn harvest and deer harvest part II

Heading towards the final days of the 2013 North Dakota deer hunt I will again utilize the numbers from the USDA Ag Statistics service: Last year at this time all of the corn was harvested but the 5 year average is only 69%. Last week there was 64% done and now as of Nov 18 the harvest is 78% complete. I’d argue with exception to area’s with propane shortage holding off harvest-everyday is going to subtract more corn from the landscape. So...less corn..colder weather...fewer hunters...and this should help encourage the last push to the end of the 2013 season.
