We're looking for someone to mow our lease in Polk County. Deer lease located off 287 between Groveton and Corrigan. Approx 10-12 hunting areas with lanes trough the pine trees.

Please PM me if you have any contacts.

Thanks.

You making roads or shredding? Box blade is not for mowing.

You could call Hendrix Equipment in Livingston. They could get you in touch with someone I'm sure!

How high is the brush you need mowing? Lawnmowers can do some awesome clearing if you haven't let the trees grow up. Just hot as crap now to mow more than 2 areas a day.

Better get it done QUICK. I just mowed a portion of one pasture this morning that I haven't been able to get to before....because it was too wet.

In East Texas everything grows fast. If you look the other side of my tractor in the pic you will see the weeds I am mowing. Some are a full 12' high.

I had to take out small strips as I neared the fence-line....because I literally could not see the fence itself...it was so thick.

No, blood weed here will get up to about 6-7' and grows fast too, can have a larger stem. Don't really know the name of this stuff, real stem-y. Grows really fast.

I'll try to find out what it is. Need to find out also if it's good for anything....because Lord knows its easy to grow it.

Edit: Found it....it's Giant Ragweed.

Think whoever they are paying the lease money to would know someone in the area.

Giant ragweed, very high in protein, animals tend to be healthy around it but if left too long the stalk gets as big as a baseball bat. Hard to get rid of but in the winter it just tips over because the roots are very shallow.

We called it Bloodweed down here in South Texas and looks like what you have in that pic. It is very stemy and grows 10-12' tall on the creek bottoms here where it is wetter and no cattle on the places. Gets full of ticks at times on the bottomland sites. I think Giant Ragweed is the correct name and is also called Bloodweeds in this area. They are one in the same I think based off your photo and link.

Yes, in the wintertime when they die and dry out....you can just run them over and they break off or uproot. Takes very little effort. They shred pretty well right now, what is hard on a mower around here is Bitter weed, Goat Weed and Broom weed.

Yes, I believe your observation is correct (known by different/several names).

'Bloodweed' in Deep East Texas is a colloquial term assigned to Pokeweed...which has dark purple berries and a reddish stalk/stem.

It is in error that it is called Bloodweed. Not unlike Rat snakes which are always called Chicken Snakes here. I attribute that to being so close to Louisiana where they have a bastardized name for virtually everything. wink Some of that has seeped across the border.

Dang.....didn't know THIS about it.


https://thecontraryfarmer.wordpress.com/2008/09/09/the-irony-of-giant-ragweed/

The seeds of giant ragweed are 47% crude protein. That is very, very high, much higher than any cultivated grain. What’s more, these seeds, which the plant produces in prodigious amounts, provide, in the words of Roger Wells, a certified wildlife biologist and national habitat coordinator for Quails Unlimited, “the highest amount of metabolizable calories, more even that corn, soybeans, wheat, or any other grain that we know.” What that means is that the seeds are very digestible. Quail or pheasants, in a good stand of giant ragweed will double and triple in population.”

Ragweed is also one of the reasons fall allergy season is so miserable in North and Central Texas.
