WCSD Welcomes

Back Employees
Mr. Calvin Stevenson, Superintendent of Schools for
Washington County, along with Washington County School
Board Members, Gary Clark, Vann Brock, Francis Hinson,
Wayne Saunders, and'John Hawkins, would like to welcome
back all faculty and staff of Washington County Schools for
the upcoming 2005-06 school year. Mr. Stevenson, speak-
ing for himself and the school board, said, "We hope that this
is the best year that we have ever had in the Washington
County School District. We are looking forward to the oppor-
tunity for all of us to work together to meet the educational
needs of the students, who attend our schools."
The Superintendent and Board Members would like to
recognize and congratulate all of the schools for helping
the district to receive an overall grade of "B" for the 2004-
05 school year. This is the second year in the row.that the
Washington County School District has reached this level
of academic performance.
Mr. Stevenson also made special mention of the perfor-
mance improvements.that were made by both Vernon and
Chipley high schools. Mr. Stevenson said, "I am particularly
proud of the improvements made at our two high schools.
Vernon High School increased their school score by 63
points and Chipley High School increased their school score
by 50 points over the last year. The statewide average
gain for high school was 7.99 points. This just shows how
hard the faculty and staff at these schools worked to help
improve student achievement." Mr. Stevenson also noted
that Vernon High School had the 4th highest improvement
of any high school in the state and that both high schools
scored their highest point totals on the state FCAT test since
this program began.
In addition" to the improvements made at the high
schools, Vernon Elementary School earned a grade of
"A" for the third year in a row, Roulhac Middle School has
earned either an "A" or a "B" for the last 4-years, and both
of these schools made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).
These results demonstrate a strong commitment to aca-
demic achievement at both of these schools.
Mr. Stevenson is quoted as saying, "I know that everyone
will be elated over these student achievement results. It has
taken a great deal of effort, with all of us working together,
to strengthen our instructional programs that allow us to
reach this level of achievement."

Hawaiian trip

To the editor:
It is interesting to note that out
of the 26 counties sending some-
one to the conference in Hawaii,
Washington County was one.
Again, Only 47 elected officials
in Florida chose to attend this con-
ference due to the political fallout
and Washington County chose to
send one.
Washington County sent one
staff member out of the 18 sent
statewide.
This is the county that con-
stantly has it hands stuck out for
state and federal monies and cry-
ing poor mouth constantly when
funding is required for critical
local improvements/concerns.
Washington County may have
belonged to this NaCo, but it was
many years ago. They have not
participated in the organization
in probably 15 years, but yet they
chose to join for the sake of send-
ing Chairman Finch. There was
no board approval for this action
on record as of this date.
'T'lf ll-. 1- -1..-1 .. r_ iAT7__


ington County is that not one of
the various new agencies have re-
ported this vacation taken by one
commissioner and one county ad-
ministrator. This was done with
taxpayer monies. Repeat--at tax-
payer's expense.
The sad thing is that the local
media has failed to report this.

SPerry's Prattle By Perry Wells

2


In my growing up in the
late 1930s and early 1940s,
what we knew as CCC
camps, commonly called
'3C camps," were part of
our lives.
Even though 'none of
the Wells boys were old
enough to serve, many
of the young men in our
community were allowed
to enter this form of gov-
ernmental service.
Officially, the organiza-
tion was the Civilian Con-
servation Corps. It was
one of the many programs
enacted after President
Franklin D. Roosevelt
was elected in a landslide
victory in 1932. CCC was
one of the most popular
programs brought about
by what came to be known
as Roosevelt's New Deal
'pump priming" govern-
ment-spending effort
designed to get a stagnant
and depressed economy
moving forward.
Before the program
ended over three million
young men engaged in the
massive salvage operation.
Camps were established
all over the United States.
The recruits were paid $25
monthly with $20 to be
sent to their families for
immediate spending.
The venture was dubbed
'Roosevelt's Tree Army"
by its critics as reforesta-
tion of millions of acres of
cut-over land in practically
every state was one of its
functions.
There were many other
projects undertaken also.
State and Federal parks,
bridges, dams and roads
.are still in use today as a
monument to the efforts of
these young men so long


ago.
The Florida State Cav-
erns Park in Marianna has
a plaque erected paying
tribute to the resources
of the CCCs in Jackson
County for their early
foundational building of
that popular tourist attrac-
tion.
My mother had four
half-brothers who served
in the CCC. My mind has
dwelled on this subject
since I talked to my uncle,
Arlie Harris, the third in
the sequence of the four
boys. He explained that
the rules only allowed one
male member of the family
to serve at the time.
My uncle, Archie, being
the oldest, entered first. He
was sent to North Carolina,
as was a neighbor, Walter
Nelson. Both became dis-
illusioned with the service
and were allowed to come
home.
This allowed the second
son, Arthie, to enter CCC
service. He was also sent
to North Carolina. After
his. release, Arlie was al-
lowed to enlist and served
in Oregon. Upon his re-
lease, Arie, the youngest,
was allowed in and spent
his time in California.
Bess Yates Harrell
told me recently that her
brother, Buford Yates,
was in the CCC camp at
Milton along with Ernest
Owen of Chipley and the
two of them would come
to Bonifay by "hoboing"
the train. My dad's cousin,
Joe Bush, spent time in the
CCC and I still remember
him telling of his experi-
ences while away from
home, probably for the
first time.

: -c. ~ ,


This photo of my uncle, Arlie W. Harris, was made
after he entered the U.S. Army upon completion
of his assigned time in the CCCs. He had a career
in Civil Service after discharge from the army in
Mobile and Eglin AFB, and he and his wife, Mary,
live in Niceville.


I have written previously
of my dad's never-ending
effort to make extra money
for the family. I recall that
he made regular trips to
the CCC camp at Wilma,
Florida, hauling boys to
and from that facility to
their homes in the Bonifay
and Chipley communities.
Alto (Toad) Nelson, our
neighbor and kinsman, ar-
ranged these trips as he
was assigned to the Wilma


camp.
Later, Toad met his
future wife, Virginia Ha-
sell, while assigned to the
Foley camp. They lived in
Perry and reared a family.
Their daughter is Barbara
Nelson Jackson, married
to Gordon Jackson, both
retired Washington County
school teachers who con-
tinue to live here.
Jerry Tyre has told me of
the experience of his dad,


E.I. (Shorty) Tyre, from
Lulu, Florida, meeting his
future wife, Lurene Waller,
who became the mother of
Jesse, Joyce, Janice and
Jerry, while the father was
assigned to the CCC camp
in Washington County.
The facility was located
between Chipley and.
Bonifay and was known as
Camp Glenn.
Shorty Tyre and other
members of the Chipley
camp came into town for
church services at Shiloh
where the romance blos-
somed. James Tolva Har-
rell, brother of Thomas
Ray Harrell, was a CCC
member and met and mar-
ried his wife, Annie Lee,
while stationed in Winston
Salem, N.C. They lived
there for several years after
Tolva's release, but ulti-
mately returned to Wash-
ington County for their
final years.
My good friend and
former landlord, Fred W.
Freeman of Bay County,
was in the CCC.
It was there that he came
to know John McDonald,
who later served as State
Senator from DeFuniak
Springs, was mayor of that
city, and also was hospital
administrator at what is
now Northwest Florida
Community Hospital, for
a while.
E.W. (Judge) Carswell,
noted historian and prolific
writer and publisher, spent
time in CCC service in his
early years and came to
know Fred and John. The
three of them, plus many
others, attended the an-
nual CCC reunion which
was held for many years in
this area and may still be in

existence.
Judge Carswell devoted
a column in his book.
"Washington Florida 12th
County," to a detailed ac-
count about the Chipley
camp, including a lengthy
roster of CCC members
serving there. Without
referring to the book, I do
recall seeing the names of
Donnie Brock and Troy
Chesnut.
President Roosevelt's
avowed goals in estab-
lishing the Civilian Con
servation Corps was to
bring together two wasted
resources, the young men
of the nation and the land
itself. One judge in Chi-
cago stated that crime in
that city dropped 55 per.
cent with the creation of
the CCCs.
By the summer of 1941.
the CCC program was in
serious trouble. Lack of
applicants, desertion and
the number of enrollees
dropped to fewer than
200,000.
The attack at Pearl
Harbor sent many of its
members into the military
service and, by 1942, the
CCC slipped into history
when the Congress, on a
narrow vote, declined to
further fund the program.
Maybe this topic will
develop into one for The
Heritage Book of Wash.
ington County, which has
a cut-off date for stories
of Sept. 1, 2005. You are
welcome to write the story
on the CCC or any other
"topical" or family his.
tory that you feel inclined
to write on. I can't write
them all, but Hester and
our sons think I'm trying.
See you all next week.












Local Scouts at
jamboree
Six Boy Scouts rep-
resented Washington
County at the National
Scout Jamboree held in
Virginia. Front, from

Joshua Tracy and Zack
Grippo. Back, same

was marred by a tragic
accident on Monday
when four Alaskan scout
leaders were killed in an
electrical accident. No
scouts were harmed.


Farmers and ranchers
with certain Conservation
Reserve Program (CRP)
contracts expiring this year
may extend their contracts
for one year, announced
Kevin Kelley, State Execu-
tive Director for USDA's
Farm Service Agency
(FSA).
"The expiration affects
approximately 1,969 acres
now protected by the CRP
in 10 Florida counties,"
said Kelley. "Extending
certain existing contracts
will ensure that CRP's
environmental benefits are
preserved."
Local FSA offices will
notify eligible CRP par-
ticipants of their option to


modify and extend their
CRP contracts. The dead-
line to apply for this exten-
sion is Sept. 2, 2005.
The extension option
applies to CRP participants
with contracts scheduled to
expire on Sept. 30, 2005,
and whose original con-
tract with the extension
will not exceed 15 years.
About 7,000 contracts, na-
tionwide, are affected.
The extension will not
change participants' rental
rates. All or a portion of
the acreage under contract
may be included in an ex-
tension, but no new acre-
age may be added. Obliga-
tions and responsibilities
under the original contract


continue to apply to con-
tracts that are modified and
extended.
USDA is not planning.
to offer a general CRP
signup in fiscal year 2005.
However, producers may
continue to enroll rela-
tively small, highly-desir-
able acreage, such as filter
strips and riparian buffers,
in the continuous CRP at
any time at their local FSA
office.
The CRP is a volun-
tary program available to
agricultural producers to
help them safeguard envi-
ronmentally sensitive land.
Producers enrolled in CRP
plant long-term, resource-
conserving covers to im-


prove the quality of water,
control soil erosion, and
enhance wildlife habitat.
In return, FSA provides
participants with rental
payments for 10- to 15-
years and cost-share assis-
tance to establish the prac-
tice. Since its inception in
1986, CRP continues to re-
duce soil erosion, improve
water quality and wildlife
habitat, and sequester at-
mospheric carbon in the
35 million acres currently
enrolled in the program.
For more information on
the CRP program, contact
your local FSA office or

Blood supply low
The blood supply in our area is critically low. The Red
Cross is calling on blood donors of all blood types to
schedule a blood donation. Please help us replenish the
blood supply by donating or asking someone to donate.
Areas we are normally able to import blood from are
experiencing blood shortages of their own and are not
able to provide blood to our area. As a result of the low
blood supply, some elective surgeries are being tempo.
rarily postponed.
You can help alleviate this blood shortage by donating.
Remember there is not substitute for blood. It can only
come from volunteer donors like you.

State sales tax holiday


Governor Jeb Bush
recently announced the
official start of the 2005
Florida Sales Tax.
Governor Bush recently
signed into law the sales
tax holiday which will end
on July 31. Under the sales-
tax holiday law, no state
or local sales tax will be
charged on items valued at
.$50 or less. Items include
clothes, footwear, books
and certain accessories.
School supplies valued un-
der $10 are also included
in the sales-tax holiday.
"I applaud Florida's
corporate citizens for their
commitment to providing
families these additional


savings as they prepare for
the start of the new school
year. I encourage more
Florida businesses to get
involved," said Governor
Bush,
"All Floridians should
take advantage of this
great opportunity to save
money, while at the same
time giving back to their
communities through the
statewide book drive."
In addition to the tax
break, shoppers will have
an opportunity to donate
books that will be distrib-
uted to Florida schools
serving as hurricane shel-
ters.

4 *lContinued from page 1A


Attorney General Char-
lie Crist said his staff has
received an extraordinary
number of price gouging
complaints due to the ap-
proach of Hurricane ennis,
particularly from the Pan-
handle area, and pledged
to aggressively investigate
the complaints.
Multiple complaints of
excessive price increases
have poured into the At-
torney General's Fraud
Hotline, many of them re-
porting gas price increases
of 20 to 40 cents per gallon
in a 24-hour period. One
caller reported an increase
from $2.18 per gallon to
$2.89.
. "We are already looking
into these.reports and are
most interested in hear-
ing an explanation for
price increases of 20 to 30
percent once the state of
emergency was declared,"
said Crist.
The Attorney General's
Economic Crimes Division
is already looking into the
more than 300 complaints
received through the Fraud
Hotline as of 4 p.m. Friday,
July 8.
More than 95 percent
of those complaints have


involved fuel costs.
Those wishing to report
suspected price gouging
may call the Fraud Hot-
line at1-866-9-NO-SCAM
or 1-866-966-7226.

*The Better Business Bu-
reau of Northwest Florida
is offering information to
consumers regarding price
gouging in the days lead-
ing up to, and following,
Hurricane Dennis.
Under Florida Law, it is
unlawful to charge exorbi-
tant or excessive prices for
essential items including
shelter, food, water, ice,
generators, lumber, gas
and lodging following the
declaration of an emer-
gency, unless .the increase
in the amount .charged is
attributable to additional
costs incurred by the com-
pany.

"that everything was done

Tom and Kim Cooper
visited John in Hono-
lulu earlier that June. "He
picked up his bags but he
left his hat, I handed it to
him and he said "see ya

His last words to his broth.
er were "Take good care of
my motorcycle."
On July 4, Cooper's
family had gone on vaca.
tion to Iowa when they
received a call from the
Marines that their son had
been in an accident and
that he was unconscious.
The family immediately
flew out to Honolulu where
they stayed by John's side.
Tom and Kim Cooper
last saw their son while
leaving the airport in Ho-
nolulu after visiting him on
base. Cooper's last words
to his mother were "See

walk away he said to his
brother "Take good care of

about academics and have
the desire and ability to
learn. However, there are
many families that do not
have the means necessary
to purchase school sup-
plies for their children.
The Chipley .Junior

mined to insure that no
student will begin school
without having the tools
necessary to learn and suc-
ceed.

needed this year include
No. 2 and primary pencils;
primary colored mark-
ers; crayons; backpacks;
Elmer's glue; liquid soap;
Fiskar scissors; colored
pencils; dry erase mark-
ers; folders with bottom
pockets; large erasers; one


subject wide ruled note-
book; four pack highlight-
ers; 70 sheet spiral bound
notebook; stitched Mead
composition books; wide
ruled loose leaf notebook
paper; Clorox wipes; and
disposable cameras. Com-
plete Back-To-School sup-
ply lists will be available at'
each drop off location.
The drop off locations
for the school supplies
through July 20 include:
Community South Credit
Union, Panhandle Family
Medicine, Tiny Treasures

HEALTH NEWS

AND VIEWS

Chiropractic And Massage Therapy
Balancing the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Dr, Stuart Steiger
Chiropractic healthcare focuses upon the spine, the muscles encompassing
the spine, and the nerves that exit from the spine. The philosophy and science
of chiropractic are based upon the fact that the entire body is controlled by the
nervous system-brain, spinal cord, and nerves. The spine surrounds the spinal cord
and the nerves that exit in route to the muscles, tissues, and organs of the body. If
your spine misaligns then it can pinch or choke the nerve that exits from that area. If
the nerve is choked it cannot communicate efficiently from brain to tissue and from
tissue to brain. The end result is pain, muscle spasticity, dysfunction, and disease. By
realigning the spine, pressure is taken off the nervous system and the body can then heal
itself because the body is able to communicate more efficiently.
How does misalignment of the spine affect muscles? When the spine misaligns the brain com-
municates to the muscles in that area to brace, or cast off, the area of irritation. It is the body's
defense mechanism to prevent further misalignment and nerve irritation. If this becomes pro-
longed then the muscles continue to spasm, form trigger points, and eventually scar tissue from
chronic inflammation and nerve impingement. If the nerve impingement is not removed then
the muscles innervated by the nerves and surrounding the misalignment will continue to spasm,
guarding the area of irritation.
Muscular tension and muscle trauma can affect the spine and extremity joints just as much as
the spine can affect the muscles. If we have muscle imbalance due to tension or overuse then this
pulls on the spine and causes misalignment of the spine or joint. The more chronic the muscle
tension the more likely the joint moves out of alignment, possibly pinching the nerve.
Chiropractors realign the spine, take the pressure off the nerves and allow the muscle to relax
through normal healing processes. However, trigger points, fascial adhesions, and scar tissue
need more attention through techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, or
deep tissue massage. How massage therapy helps chiropractic adjustments hold their alignment:
Therapeutic massage helps remove the muscular interference by breaking adhesions, scar tis-
sue, and trained behavioral patterns of muscles. By releasing the muscular tension you allow the
body to readjust itself and balance, improving joint alignment and overall well-being. If muscles
are too tense then our adjustments take longer to "hold." Removing the nerve interference allows
the muscles to relax, thus shortening or lengthening the muscle and helping the alignment hold.
Working with the muscles while adjusting the spine helps improve the holding ability of a joint
as well as helps relieve tension and discomfort. Working with both the muscular and skeletal
systems helps ensure proper function of the body, removes tension, and promotes overall well-
being and health.
About our Practice
Our mission is to facilitate healing in a caring and friendly environment. We utilize a common
sense approach in arriving at your diagnosis and implementing a treatment plan. We listen to
your concerns and address each one individually, educate you about your condition, and provide
you with practical advice to help create health, rather than treat disease.

Solger takes
fifth place
Ethan Solger, a ninth
grader at Chipley High
School, under the direction
of Agriculture Instructor
Bryan Lee, represented
the District at the State
Convention in Orlando
this summer and placed
in the top five in the state.
This has not happened for
Chipley High school in
over 10 years.
This contest began at
the subdistrict level and
moved to the district level
over the period of about six
months. Ethan's first place
win at each level gave him
the opportunity to take it to
the state level.
The FFA Creed is a
prepared speech that is
followed by a series of
questions from a panel
of judges that each par-


ticipant must answer. The
speech itself deals with the
belief that there is a future
in Agriculture.
The opening line begins
with ..."I believe in the fu-
ture of Agriculture, with a
faith born not of words but
of deeds...." Ethan rep-
resented the District and
Chipley High School well.

JEREMY RAINES
Sports Editor
What a way to spend the
summer.
With the dog days
of summer and the
unrelenting heat waves
we have been suffering,
Chipley and Holmes
County high schools found
a way to make summer
better. Both schools won
their bids to host the Dizzy
Dean and Dixie Majors
state tournaments.
These tournaments
brought some of the finest
young talent in the state to
our area. Competition to
get tournament host sites
is highly competitive.
Local leagues make bids
and promote themselves
to host these events.
Coach Ron Dixon and
Coach Andy Compton
put a lot of effort and time
into their teams, and their
efforts were rewarded over
the past few weeks as both
teams make strong runs in
the tournaments.
Chipley finished third
in the Dixie Pre-Majors
tournament and Holmes
County won both age
groups in the Dizzy Dean
tournaments.
These coaches and
players not only put on a
great tournament, but they
helped bring much-needed
revenue into our small
communities.
As I sat and watched the
games being played and
enjoyed the excellent play
and sportsmanship taking
place. it reminded me of
how lucky arid fortunate
we are to be able to live in
our great country.
I watched the games and
had the pleasure of talking
to one of the parents from
Hernando County. As
we sat and talked, she
shared with me that she
had another son serving
in Iraq. She told me that
the baseball tournaments
were her way of keeping
her sanity in these times.
"This is my therapy," she
said.
That was one thing that
really shook my soul To
see a mother having to live
through such a trying time
and the thing that eased
her mind was watching
"America's National
Pastime."
She spoke about the
team's previous wins and
how her son played in the
regular season and that he
also played many other
sports..
As I1 listened I
appreciated the sport a
little more as each inning
passed.. When we parted
ways I thanked her for
sharing her time with me
and for having a son that
served our great nation.
She looked at me ,and
simply said, "Thanks for
listening."
So thanks to these
coaches for bringing
these tournaments to our
towns and for giving me
the pleasure of sharing a
moment with such a nice '
person. I also hope that in
the coming years we are
able to continue hosting
these events and are able


to bring even more joy to
someone's heart.

Chipley finishes third in Pre-Majors tourney


JEREMY RAINES
Sports Editor
Over the past week,
Chipley played host the
the Dixie Majors and Pre-
majors state tournament.
Teams from across the
state vying for a shot in
the World Series took
to the field battling each
other and the elements.
The week was packed
with great baseball action
and a lot of rain delays.
The tournament was
originally planned to end
of Wednesday, but had to
be extended to Thursday
with double games
being played due to the
weather.
Polk County topped
Crystal River to capture
the Dixie Majors (19-
and-under) title and
advance to the Worlds
Series in Laurel, MS. The
local Northwest Florida
All-Stars, consisting of
players from Vernon,
Bonifay and Chipley,
finished third in the state.
In the Pre-Majors
tournament, two area
teams, Chipley and
Bonifay participated.
Bonifay made an
early departure from the
tournament after being
eliminated by Hernando
County 9-2. Chipley
made a strong run at the
state title after winning
their opening round game
against Mulberry. They
then fell to Hernando
County, dropping them
into the losers bracket.
Chipley bounced back
to defeat Marion County
6-4, leaving, Chipley,
Hernando and Marion
with one loss each.
Due to Chipley

Ryan Brown connects with
receiving a bye, they had
to play Marion County
again for the chance to
play Hernando County in
the championship game.
Chipley struggled at the
plate and Marion County
came out on top, 6-2, to
advance to the title game.
Scotty Rudd, Hunter
Park, Ryan Brown and
several others had hits
for Chipley in the game
against Marion. Chipley
ended up third in the
state.
. Hernando County
beat Marion County to
advance to play in the
Pre-Majors World Series
in Ponchatoula, LA.
"This tournament
brought together some
of the finest talent in the
state and the play has been
exceptional," said Marion
County's head coach.

Catfish Rodeo set


Hunter Park did his best to keep the Marion County
hitters off balance, but came up short in his outing.

FWC encourages early sign-ups


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is
encouraging would-be
hunters to sign up and
take their mandatory
Hunter Safety Course
this summer and not wait
until the fall. This time
of year provides the best
opportunity to get into
a class as slots are more
readily available. During
hunting season and just
prior, classes usually fill
up fast.
The FWC Hunter
Safety Course, or similar
approved course by
another state, province
or organization, is a
requirement to obtaining
a Florida hunting license
for anyone born on or
after June 1, 1975. Even
though the course is not
required for persons born
before that date, it is
recommended, especially
for beginning hunters.
Classes are taught
throughout the state
by certified volunteer


instructors who teach
firearm safety and laws,
basic hunting terminology,
conservation, safe hunting
practices, outdoor ethics,
wildlife identification and
management, survival,
field first aid and the
Florida Wildlife Code.
The course is free and
prepares sportsmen for
a safer, more rewarding
experience while in the
outdoors.
"Don't wait until the
last minute to sign up
to take a Hunter Safety
Course or you may have
a hard time getting into
a class," said Bill Cline,
program administrator.
"A large number of
courses are being offered
statewide this summer,
and it's bestto try to get
into one while more space
is available. Then, when
hunting season gets here,
you'll be ready to go."
The Florida Hunter
Safety Course meets all the
requirements for hunter
safety training throughout


North America. It also is
essential for Floridians
who wish to hunt in most
other states or in Canada
and need to purchase a
non-resident license.
The course is available
to be taken in a classroom
setting, and it is offered
in all of the state's 67
counties.
In addition to the
traditional in-class
course, hunters now
have the option of taking
most of the classroom
instruction online or on
compact disc, without
leaving home.
However, hunters who
choose the Internet or
CD-ROM version must


take an additional three
hours in the classroom;
successfully pass a written
exam; and participate
in a field-day class that
includes live-firing
instruction on a shooting
range.
"Don't wait to take
the class, and make
arrangements now to sign
up for one this summer,"
Cline said.
For more information
on the Hunter Safety
Program or to learn when
the next available class or
field day will be offered
in your area, contact

Proper food plot management -- .".. .

helps maintain deer growth !"


Each year, an increasing
number of hunters who own
or lease land are planting
forage to attract deer and
provide the nutritional
supplement required to
develop optimum body
size and antlers.
The reason? It
works-on both counts.
Since 1988, when the
Whitetail Institute of North
America became, the first
company dedicated to the
development of protein-
rich forage blends for
whitetail deer, the number
of Boone and Crockett
Club (B&C) and Pope and
Young Club (P&Y) entries
has risen dramatically.
According to a study
conducted by outdoor
life contributor Brad
Herndon, 12,935 typical
P&Y bucks (125 inches
minimum) were registered
between 1991 and 2000,
compared to a total of
9,315 between 1961,
when the organization
was formed, and 1991. As
for the number of B&C
typical entries (170 inches
minimum), 1,896 bucks
scored high enough for
the record book between
1991 and 2000, while a
total of 2,088 were logged
in between 1932, when
whitetail records were first
registered, and 1991.
A number of factors,.
including growing
herd sizes, quality deer
management (QDM)
practices and self-restraint
on the part of hunters,
have contributed to the
general increase in trophy
bucks. However, the focus
on the nutritional needs
of whitetails by wildlife
biologists and the seed
industry has also played a
major role.
And those patient
sportsmen who .. have
the laid~ and equipment
required to stoke
whitetails year-round with


supplemental protein and
minerals are reaping the
rewards. Yet land managers
can't simply throw seed on
the ground. Successful
plantings require careful
research and planning, as
well as the money to buy
and plant seeds and keep
them growing.
Laying the Table
The size and number
of food plots depends on
the size of your property,
rainfall, suitable areas
and the approximate
,number of whitetails in
the neighborhood. "When
deer densities are one per
twenty acres or more I
recommend that one to
two percent of the total
area be turned into food
plots," says Texas wildlife
management consultant
Larry W. Varner. "With
high deer densities of one
deer to ten acres or less,
three to five percent of
the property should be
planted."
As for the seed that is
planted, choose wisely
based on research about
the best forage crops
for your area and their
protein content. Ask a local
extension service agent or
seed merchant for advice
or consult the companies
that offer regional blends.
If possible, plant a mix of
summer and cool-weather
crops in different plots
to provide nutrition year-
round. If your ultimate
goal is to develop a healthy
herd and help bucks
develop their maximum
genetic potential, provide
them with plenty of warm-
weather protein.
Timothy E. Fulbright,
of Caesar Kleberg Wildlife
Research Institute at
Texas A&M University,
Kingsville, says cool-
season food plots of
oats, wheat, triticale and
brassicas (beets, rape,
mustard and the like), along


with legumes such as hairy
vetch, Austrian winter
peas, alfalfa and clover,
provide nutritious forage
from November through
April. Warm-season crops
such as jointvetch, lablab,
cowpeas, soybeans and
milo provide nutrition from
early spring through late
fall. In most instances, a
combination of perennials
and annuals provides the
best food plots as the
different varieties offer
a smorgasbord of food
throughout the year.
Clover is one of the
better choices to plant.
Various types of clover
flourish throughout most
of the eastern U.S. and
much of the midwest. The
legume is- popular with
whitetails, provides a high
level of protein and, once
established, tends to reseed
itself for several years.
It has been reported that
Imperial Whitetail Clover
food plots have lasted
almost 10 years before
they had to be replanted.
"Clover provides the best
of both worlds," says Steve
Scott of Whitetail Institute
of North America; the
company that introduced
Imperial Whitetail Clover,
the first targeted food-plot
product, in 1988. "You are
not going to find anything
that is more preferred by
deer year-round. When
white oak acorns are
falling, it really doesn't
matter what you've got
planted; the deer are going
to the acorns. But white
oak acorns are available
for a very short time. And
clover provides the highest
possible nutritional value
at the right times of the
year-that is, in the spring
and summer months when
antlers are growing and
pregnant does in their third
trimester are feeding.'2
"There is no single
'magic bean,' and I'm


Food plots help promote healthy deer herds and better antler growth.


including BioLogic."
explains Dr. Grant Woods,
a South Carolina wildlife
biologist who helped to
develop the BioLogic
line for Mossy Oak. The
extensive BioLogic lineup
includes various blends
with brassicas as a major
ingredient. "A good food-
plot system matches the
needs of the deer as their
annual cycle changes. In
the spring deer need high
protein and a lot of tonnage.
As the summer develops
into July and August, deer
need moderate protein
and a lot of energy. By
late fall and through the
winter, they don't need
quite so much protein, but
they need a high amount
of energy. Specific plants
provide those nutrients at
certain times."
Blends Are Best
Small grains, such as
wheat and oats, are in the
medium range with regard
to protein but are good for
energy and might help deer
make it through a rough
winter and difficult rut.
Plant these small grains in
the fall. The brassicas are
the most drought-resistant
group and they produce the
most tonnage per unit of
effort with their huge leaf
surface areas and relatively
small stems.
The model food plot
might include various
brassicas in the fall because
of their high energy and
nutrients;. .and -legumes
such as alfalfa or clover,
especially in the spring and


summer when high protein
content is important.
Clover carries deer through
the early season when there
is little for whitetails to eat
in the woods; the acorns
are all gone and edible
twigs are in short supply.
In the deep south a mixture'
of winter oats, wheat, rye
and red and white clover
approaches the ideal,
both in terms of growing
potential and exceeding
the crude protein threshold
of about 17 percent daily
intake that deer require to
maintain optimum growth.
While relatively low in.
protein content, corn is
a high-energy food for
whitetails in the fall. If you
have the space, add corn to
some of your plantings.
If a property has a low
deer density, legumes
such as soybeans or peas
provide great forage.
They have little browse
tolerance, however, and a
high deer density can wipe
out a small plot before
the plants can grow any
tonnage. Still, soybeans
are exceptional' protein
providers.
In a! recent study
conducted at Auburn
University, biologists
compared a group of buck
fawns fed a daily diet that
provided 8 percent protein
(consistent with natural
forage in much of the
south) \with other fawns
that, were fed the same
.plus raw soybeans-. After
18 months, bucks in the
first group averaged 111


pounds in weight and 2.7
antler points. The second
group of bucks. which were
provided with the soybeans
in addition to the basic
diet the others received,
averaged 124 pounds and
3.7 antler points. To hedge
all bets, plant a seed blend.
The biggest advantage of
blends is that if one type
of plant in the seed mix
fails because the weather
is too wet or too dry, too
hot or too cold, others will
replace it. You are a farmer
who is subject to the
whims of Mother Nature;
when only one type of seed
is planted, plots are more
vulnerable to the vagaries
of the weather or insect
pests.
Planting and sustaining
nutritional supplements
for deer can be expensive,
depending on the size
of a property. Even
used farming equipment
is pricey. If a farming
neighbor lives nearby, you
might hire him to do the
job, or at least the work you
can't do, such as ground
breaking. In that case, a
perennial legume such as
clover might be the best
choice, because the plot
doesn't have to be redone
each year. Many chores,
such as broadcasting
seed, can be performed
by hand with a crank-
type broadcaster. Today,
however, a wide range of
food-plot management
-tools is available for use
with ATVs and/or lawn or
garden tractors.
