    So i read that they're going to cut almost all of yuchi because of damage from the ice storm and to bring back the long leaf pine. Does anyone know if they just went ahead and closed all of yuchi or are maybe doing it in sections and leaving the unworked sections open? Also, how do u think it's going to impact the turkey population out there? Less trees means less cover to hide from predators or will the turkeys just leave for other parts? Any info would be appreciated.

    Yeah, it's unreal. Yuchi gets hit hard but you can hardly tell phinizy swamp got anything. A few limbs or trees here and there but overall, just fine. Gonna be checking out some of the other wma's this week.
