FRANKLIN COUNTY — Deer continue to damage many farm crops each year, especially soybeans.
Farmers who suffer from deer damaged and who are interested in earning extra income can qualify to allow still hunting on their properties.
There is strong demand for locations that allow still hunting (hunting without dogs) of deer, turkey, dove and more.
Landowners, farmers leasing land and hunting clubs who hunt on farmland may enroll in the new program, receiving $2/acre for hosting a 15-day hunt and a hunt kit for long-term deer management and income opportunity.
