Is Canadian Rye a grass to avoid due to seed awns? I was told it was, but that the Michigan DNR is using it for the Pheasants Forever project. One guy has supposedly lost 2 to 3 dogs from it.
IIRC, this is correct. A very real and deadly problem in some areas of the Dakotas. I believe the ESSFT website has a complete discussion re these deadly awns.Is Canadian Rye a grass to avoid due to seed awns?

Agree. Its wasted effort thats killing dogs. Pheasants aren't coming back the way they were in the old days. Those days are long gone. I cant, however, get past dog hunters supporting an effort that uses something that kills the dogs they hunt with. Its beyond belief. If i was a conspiracy theorist, I'd say it was an anti hunting plot with the twist that they've gotten hunters to support it. Now we have wolves introduced in the UP and that have made their way to the northern lower and grass seeds planted in the lower that both kill our dogs.Well I thought this thread was about Mean seeds. But it turns out it is about these "Limp Wrist" organizations PF, DU, RG, TU, Butterflies Forever and so on. I live in a rural county on southern Michigan. No Pheasants here in a county of less than 70,000 people Open space and water and shelter belts galore.
