October means hunting season across New York: Here are the highlights coming soon

For now, New York’s pilot junior hunting program has an extension. None of that will be on the minds of junior hunters – those ages 12 to 15 – when along with their mentors they head for  New York’s deer woods for the annual Columbus Day weekend youth hunt, Oct. 7-9. 
The youth deer hunt is one of several hunting seasons that is either about to, or is already taking place in New York. That’s typical for October.

Iowa DNR urges public to wait until after Oct. 15 to prune oak trees

The best way to prevent the spread of oak wilt is to not prune any oak tree during the growing season.
“It’s best to wait until after Oct. 15 to start pruning oak trees,” says Tivon Feeley, with the Iowa DNR’s forest health program. “Then you can prune your oaks all winter long with the goal to stop pruning by March 1.”
Oak wilt, caused by a fungus, has been present in Iowa for many years.

For those willing to hike, Iowa’s South Skunk Wildlife Area offers off-the-beaten-path experience

A 40-foot strip of wild plum-lined land leads from the one-and-only parking lot on the north end of the South Skunk Wildlife Area, to a large remote floodplain grassland in southern Jasper County.
“If you want to hunt, this area is two miles to the south end,” said Casey Trine, wildlife technician with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Red Rock Unit. “The limited access has made this a unique place to hunt.”
The South Skunk Wildlife Area arose from the major flood of 2008. It was enrolled in the Wetland Reserve Program in 2010, and purchased by Pheasants Forever’s national office in 2018.

No silver carp eDNA found in new St. Joseph River samples

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources today announced that no silver carp environmental DNA was found in a Sept. 6 resampling of the St. Joseph River.

A total of 220 new samples were collected from stretches of the river between Lake Michigan and Berrien Springs, and according to the USFWS, none of the samples tested positive for bighead or silver carp eDNA.
