Fall’s last colors really standout now that leaf drop is around 80 percent. The vistas are longer making it easier to spot colors further away, and deer. No reports of big trophies taken this past weekend with modern gun yet but Dennis Berry says he knows of a couple big ones taken during muzzleloading season. He’s seen a lot of deer on the move and figures it could be a good season. Also he’s seen a lot of wild hog activity in multiple locations in the greater Crabtree area. He wouldn’t say that it’s more than usual, “They come and go a lot. It’s hard to tell.” But considering their high reproductive rates it’s probable. For more on controlling this invasive pest contact the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

Lalla Ostergren’s Japanese persimmon is yielding it’s bounty now.
