ENVIRONMENT
Weldon likes fall as a season. "Mother Nature has put on her paintbrush." Hillsides have oak trees, soft maples are on the tree line, and on the bluffs are oaks, with a few willows. There are fewer deer, rabbits, and squirrels now than there were before legalized hunting of the same.
LAND
River has been aggravating when floods happen, but the river bottoms have been helpful. Thinks he would miss it, but if given a choice between farmland inland or by the river, he would choose inland farmland because it is safer. Sometimes river bottom land will give more bushels of crop. Visibility is over a mile and a half on most days.
ACTIVITIES
ENVIRONMENT
Son and friends hunt rabbits and squirrels along the river. Thinks the rabbit and squirrel populations are low because people over-hunt them. Son's favorite seasons are spring and fall, even though the river floods early in June.
