As we come to the end of the General Season we had 22 deer checked in, 6 bucks and 16 does. Three of the bucks were multi-point bucks, 2 of them were 3 1/2 and the latest was a 2 1/2 yo 8 pt.
Does can still be taken with any legal means until 2/28/19.
Attention Oakridge birders: our winter census is scheduled for the weekend of Feb 2-3. If you are new to birding, you can join with one of 3 or 4 groups covering the ranch. Learn birds and meet neighbors. Let Amy Hardy know if you are interested!
Please note that the CCWMA Banquet is scheduled for March 16, 2019 at the Columbus KC Hall.
Dry states like Texas, New Mexico and Arizona have to deal with prickly stickers in your lawn from time to time. Also known as: Sandburrs, Grass Burrs, Sticker Burrs/Burr Stickers, Pricking Monsters, Lawn/Grass Stickers, these are all referring to the same nasty weed. They thrive in the heat and are prominently found in Bermuda and St. Augustine lawns.
If you have had a problem with grass burrs in the past – the upcoming seminar offered by ORWMA is for you. The best time of the year to try and prevent grass burrs is fast approaching. In an effort to help us learn all we can about eliminating this weed, our new Colorado County Ag Extension Agent, Laramie Naumann, will present a seminar for the landowners in Oakridge Ranch.
Please save the date: The seminar will be held on Saturday, January 19th at 9:00 at the Oakridge Community Center. The seminar is being offered free of charge – so please plan to attend.
Please mark your calendars that ORWMA is hosting a Christmas Party on Saturday – December 15th, 2018 from 2 pm to 4 pm.
The party will be held at Lynne Bigelow’s back patio located at 1287 Oakridge Road. ORWMA will provide: turkey/ham, stuffing/dressing, mashed potatoes, rolls, gravy, and a green bean casserole.
If you are planning to attend please bring a side dish or dessert.
There will be door prize drawings after the meal.
