“Basically, if you place anything that isn't grown in the area and hunt there, it's illegal,” said Lt. Larry Morrison, outdoor education director for DNR Law Enforcement. “Hunting next to a corn field or from an apple tree is legal, but placing corn or apples under your tree stand would put you in conflict with current Indiana law.”

It always tickles me to hear people act like it isn't happening but I have been following the weather of this region since 1957 and the current trends are very different than any fluctuation I have in my records. The last time we had something this significant was in the 1300 thru 1870 period, the little Ice Age event. This year we had very steady rain falls, instead of the late July thru August "dog days" where we get no rain to speak of. I think that created a better growing environment for everything, most people that grow tomatoes here were amazed that their plants produced through September this year.
