In September we made a new lake / pond on our property.
We were exited to see how it was going to turn out and if the water would stay in there.
It seems like we didn't have to worry about that cause it didn't take many days before it was filled. It takes quite a few gallons to full a hole like that as it it app 5 meters ( 16 ft )deep.
The Ducks and the deer have allready found out it's a great place to be. 
Next spring we will make a flower medow ,mixed with clover and other goodies for the deer, around it so that'll  look pretty.







This past week end we started planting 3-3500 bushes and trees. I have been working on the project for quite some time, finding out which plants attracts the deer and phesants. 
In the first three rows all way around i have chosen to get plants that gives good shelter for the wind and also gives good cover for the birds. 
Believe me it will not be an easy place to look for lunch for the Foxes. 
In the center of it all we are planting 20 various kinds of plants the wild life like to eat. Also i have made a couple of open spots and a path that winds itself around in the middle of it all.
The plants are put in the ground after a padern my buddy and i made, there will be something that are in bloom most of the season and in the autumn we'll get a colorfull plantation to look at.
Its a lot of work now and will be for the years to come, but it will be worth it.

BP. Ill keep you all posted . Will post pictures in spring and / or summer so you follow up on the project.

Matt: I am not sure there will be a whole lot of problems connected to that, exept from a little paperwork.
Over here there is no public land. That means you eather have to own the land or rent some land from a farmer to go hunting on. 
So you will have to have some kind of connection to go hunting here ( like i had when i went over to Idaho last year I hooked up with Jamie Wingler via OT ) In case, let me know i will try to arrange something for you.

Lynn : That's my neighbor wind mill that caught your eye. He is heating his house with a 20 year old geothermal instalation. He has a big old restored farm so there is a lot to heat up in the winter and when the system can't provide enough heat it switches to electricity which is quite expensive. SO he bought the mill this spring. 
It is hooked up to the power plant so when it's very windy he sells the juice to the power plant, and buys it back on days when there is no wind.

I love duck and goose hunting.
Great haul on the greenheads Claus. What's your daily limit there? Is it the same for hens?

Claus, thanks for the information on the wind turbine. I've been thinking about installing one for years. Would like to talk to some folks that have.

Doug:
We don´t have any limits on any of our game over here. We regulate it ourselves. I know it may sound strange in your ears buy it acturly works out fine.
99% of the hunters know where to draw the line. We all like to go hunting but if we just shoot everything with a puls it's not gonna work.
There's allways a jerk or two that can't find out when he start as a hunter, but after a couple of seasons he learns. 
He never gets a chance to go hunting, cause nobody invites him to their hunt and if he is to trigger happy nobody want´s to rent a piece of land with him, so he's are kind of locked. Renting land to hunt on is pretty expensive cause we are many hunters and not enough land.
Depending on whats to hunt we are looking at prices ranging from 1-2000$ pr 2,5 Accre so you can imagine it adds up quite a bit.
Many years ago i got tired of allways having to ask ( read fight) with the farmers just to get a piece of land to hunt on, that's one of the reasons why we started saving to get our own. ( to bad it took so many years but now we have it.)

The mills are a big thing over here at the moment. Not all of them works as well as promissed though. 
I talked to my neighbor last night and got the status that they just finished a repport of how much it's been producing and that wasn't satisfying. 
He will have some of the producers to come up here from Germany to se if it's tuned right.
But i guess it's also a matter of placing and so on.

Hey, I think you've found the solution to Texas' drought. Just dig a big hole and it will fill up with water. Well, if only it was that easy. Big Smile

Those are great pictures and very interesting to hear about the way things are over there and what you are doing. Someday I will have to return to Denmark. I spent several beer-sodden days in Copenhagen back in the late 80's. Speaking of wind, I was able to bike nearly from Copenhagen to Esbjerg in one day because of a fantastic tail wind (30 kph)...and that included waiting for the ferry ride (back before the Storebæltsbroen was built...that's quite a bridge, BTW).

Claus, it's good that you guys can regulate yourselves so well. I had 3 big bucks killed on my place one season and it was 3 or 4 years before big bucks started showing back up. This year my place was over run with big bucks, until the season opened, and my neighbors took all the big ones. They are still around; I saw a 4 pointer yesterday.
I hate to say it, but if we didn't limits, deer would soon become extinct here. As it is, we have plenty now; enough that the health of the herd has to be watched. I also remember a time when it was easier to see a bobcat in the wild than a deer, and if you killed a buck (all that was allowed) during the season, you were considered a great and lucky hunter.
I think it's great that you are trying to improve wildlife habitat, you will be suprised at the critters that you will see.

Ha ha  I'm glad you enjoyed Denmark back then. Big Smile The girls are still pretty and the beer' still cold.Wink
Yeah, get over here and check it all out.
WOW Thats a long bike ride. I would say around 300 km. 185 Mls. 
What were you doing over here?

Lynn:
Ain't that allways so.. The neighbors get's the biggest ones... I have had some pretty good ones here to but they don't stay. They are only here to eat what i feed them during the night, and then they leave for the forrest near by before dawn.
Thats one of the things i hope to change during the years with all the bushes and trees we planted.

All I remember was collapsing sore butt and all in some grove of trees near a farm around Gørding. I was biking from Bergen to Gol (central Norway where my grandfather was from), Oslo, down to Malmo/Lund and then across Denmark. Each country was beautiful in its own way. Norway is perhaps the most spectacular, but I got to do some cool stuff in Sweden, including visiting the army base where my friend was doing his service. Denmark with plenty of quiet backroads and thatched roofs was very picturesque.

Ive done some similar projects on farm land that I have in Iowa. The way we plant rows of trees here is a ripper on back of a tractor with someone placing the young trees in as it goes along.  I still plant some native prairie grass also which is good wildlife habitat. I go out and pick several types of native prairie grass: little blue stem, big blue stim, switch grass etc.  Some of these grasses grow up to 8 ft tall and are excellend wildlife habitat which grows much faster than trees and schrubs. 
  If you want quail  you can take a roll of wire with holes larger than the birds but difficult for preditors to get through and run the wire in concentric circles planting schrubs in between the circles.  If done near a pond the quail will do very will if you build a couple of these  so they can escape preditors.
