We just checked the plots on the farm. I mowed them down during the "first" drought back in early July and not a dang thing grew back. I guess if we get some rain the weeds could shoot up, but as of now I'm not even going to have to break out the rotary cutter before we disc them up.

No dead deer found. Lots of traffic around the river though. We're lucky to have a river and several creeks running through the property. At least they have water.
