Here is the cleanest area just after he finished last summer...........



Same area today. It doesn't take long once you introduce sunlight. I'm actually a little worried about it growing back too quick before I get my wood cut.......

c'n'c, great pics. Thanks for sharing. Glad to see that you are already seeing the fruits of you labor. Good to see the results also on properties in the Southeast. Our property is in Ga. and heavily wooded like yours.

What is the total acreage of your property?

Thanks Bronco. My property is only 25 acres. My wife and I bought the property when we were 26 years old (I'm 32 now)..... only a couple years after my wife graduated college and the same year that I graduated.......so it was a lot for us at the time even though it's small for a hunting property.

I'm lucky to be bordered by much lager landowners around me. My neighbor that borders directly up to me owns a very, very large construction company and has 700 acres beside me that is only 1 of 5 such properties that the family owns. Most of it is used to entertain their friends and clients with quail hunts. There is a 30-40 acre stand of pines that borders me to the northwest that noone ever goes in that I'm aware of.....so it basically just acts like another sanctuary for me making my property hunt much bigger than it is. You can see how the swamp also seperates us. The souther border is another road...

I appreciate it......The chocolate pie and banana pudding both would have looked much better had we given them the proper time to cool and thicken before digging in......
