I like to wait until July before I brush hog the trails and open areas at the farm. This is to give the fawns time to get big enough to get up and move when the tractor approaches. It has been either too wet or too hot the first few days of July.
I had to do some work on the brush hog before I could start. Before the first hour, I had a flat front tire. I lost 2 1/2 hours repairing it. I have, in the past, fixed a front flat in about an hour, I am getting old and slow Then back hogging for 5 hours.
