If You’re Not Liming Properly,
You’re Throwing Away Part Of Every
Fertilizer Dollar.
By correcting soil acidity, limestone frees-up
desirable nutrients that feed your crop. Plus,
limestone ties up toxic elements that reduce
crop production.
High nitrogen use in modern farming practices
acidifies the soil quickly. This limits your crop
vigor and yields. Therefore, today it’s more
important than ever to lime according to soil
test results. Proper liming gives you the most
from your fertilizer dollar.

Limestone dealer or call Blue Ball, PA.

“Young people handling
firearms need to develop some
important habits,” says Robbins.
“We can instill these habits by
instructing them and more
important, by setting an exam
ple. New hunters, as well as
those who have held a hunting
license in another state or coun
try, are required to complete a
hunter-trapper education pro
gram. These individuals also
need role models who practice
safe hunting skills.”
Robbins offers these hunting

Safety Precautions
obstructions. Guns must be
sighted properly and have the
proper sized ammunition.
• Familiarize yourself with
the hunting site, so that you will
know what’s beyond your target.
“Walk through the hunting
grounds before deer season
starts,” Robbins says. “When
you know the area, you can keep
livestock and buildings out of
the line of fire.”
• Make sure every member of
the group wears a combined
minimum of 250 square inches
of hunter orange on the head,
chest and back.
•Assume every firearm is
loaded. “When you pick up a
gun, the first thing you should
do is check it for ammunition,”
Robbins says. “When you pass a
firearm to someone else, leave
the action open so there is no
chance of it firing.”
• Unload guns and leave the
actions open when you are
transporting them to and from
the hunting area.
• Always keep track of where
your gun is pointed, and keep
your finger off the trigger until
it’s time to fire at your target.
Never aim your gun at anything

climbing trees, scaling fences

• If you have shot a deer and

• Never engage in horseplay

• Know the location of all the
members of your hunting group.
“Before separating, discuss
where each hunter will be stand
ing on watch and who will be
walking through the woods,”
Robbins says.
• Don’t shoot until you’re
absolutely sure of your target.
Shooting at a sound or an unde
fined shape is inviting tragedy.

means making sure whether the
deer is a buck or a doe,” Robbins
