Member FDIC ~ Since 1903 Vidalia Ferriday Monterey Woodville Natchez -- wants you to know -- Submitted by Ann EL Davis, Wilkinson County Extension Agent It's hard to believe that fall has finally arrived and it is time to think football, hunting, fairs and festivals, and Thanksgiving rather than weekly lawn mowing and care. Of course, there are a couple of lawn tasks that will make your life easier and more pleasant to the eye that need to be done in the next couple of weeks. Fall is a good time to re- apply mulch. As you begin to tidy up the garden, remov- ing old foliage and seed-heads, consider putting down a flesh layer of mulch -- particularly if you did not apply mulch to then ran the conversion to make the score 18-14 in the fourth period.

The benefits of mul- ching just cannot be stressed enough. Although get&ng it hauled in and applied to all landscape beds is one of the more strenuous garden activi- ties, it is well worth the effort involved. Mulching makes ev- erything look fresh and "sets off' or "fi~rnes" your plants. According to Dr. Lelia Kelly, mulching gives the impression your garden is well tended even if it is not! Resides all the esthetic benefits, it retains moisture, moderates soft tem- perature and helps control weeds. Dr. Kelly recommends that mulch should be 4 to 6 inches deep in most cases. Do not pile the mulch directly next to the trunks of trees or shrubs or the crowns of herbaceous plants. Shredded bark or pine needles work best where rain may tend to wash the mulch as these types of mulch tend to stay in place. For other more level areas, pine bark, chips or other types could be used. Kelly also recommends organ- ic mulches as these ever time will decompose and add to the organic content of the soft. Do not mulch beds where you rely on reseeding plants, such as spider lilies, poppies, larkspur, and hollyhocks, to repepulate the beds. Lawns that have been fre- quently mown with clippings removed may benefit from a late season ap~olication of potassium fertilizer. Many garden centers carry 0-0-60 (potassium chloride) or 0-0-50 (potassium sulfate) fertilizers. Apply one pound of potash per 1000 square feet of lawn which is one and two thirds pounds of 0-0-60 or two pounds of 0-0- 50. The fertilizer should be applied by mid-October. Remove fallen leaves weekly. Leaves left on the lawn block sunlight and pre- vent moisture from evaporat- ing. The dark, damp condi- tions under leaves are ideal for several disease organisms.

Cartridge Broadheads Are Illegal For Use In Archery Season which may be used during the bow and arrow only season for white-tailed deer. Based upon some prior Attorney General's Opinions, the MDWFP consid- ers these devices to be "fire- arms." Using such a device during the archery season for deer could expose the hunter to being charged with ' unt ing out of season." The devices are perfectly legal for use dur- ing the regular gun season for deer by any person who may lawfully own or possess a firearm. Likewise any device that propels a conventional ar- row by means of firing a firearm cartridge or blank is also prohibited from use during archery-only deer season. "We have had some calls on these weapons that look like a rifle, but they "fire" an arrow by means of a .22 Long Rifle cartridge or a blank being fired to pro- pel the arrow downrange," said Steve Adcock, MDWFP Chief of Law Enforcement. "Of course, these devices are not longbows, compound bows or crossbows, so they cannot be used during the archery-only deer season." Such devices can be used during the regular gun sea- son for deer.

The devices are simi- lar to "bang sticks" and allow a handgun or other metallic car- tridge to be placed inside the device which is then screwed onto the end of a conventional archery arrow. The arrow can then be fired as any other ar- row; however, when the arrow impacts the target, the car- tridge is fired, propelling the bullet into the targeffquarry, killing the quarry. 4O MISS. ADMIN. CODE Part 2, Rule 2.2, is the Com- mission regulation for lawful weapons for use during the various deer seasons. Para- graph C.I., states, "AmheDn. Longbows, recurves, com- pound bows, and crossbows. There is no minimum or maxi- mum draw weight. There is no minimum length arrow. Fixed or mechanical broad- heads may be used." The bang stick attachments are NOT 'Ya~hanical broadheads" and are NOT lawful equipment
