I stopped by a couple of my fields in Kleberg County (Riviera) yesterday to check on how my the sunflowers are doing. We had caught some rain at the right time which really helped the sunflowers take off. We have a pretty good stand on most of the fields, while others are kind of spotty in places but thats ok because we have grain planted around the fields.
A lot of local birds are already in the fields and we have been seeing more birds show up each week. We are too far out to tell what opening weekend is for sure going to be like but I can definitely say that it will be excellent if things keep going the way they are. 4 Fields checked so far, 18 more in 3 other counties to go.
Good luck to everyone who is hunting Sept 1.
