I dove hunted for 20 years on a peanut field at Deleon. Drove through there 3 years ago and didn't see a single peanut field. Our farmer said the subsidy went to the panhandle. In the early 80's they would dig the peanuts around labor day. I can tell you doves love peanuts. Later on they were under contract, and wouldn't dig til mid October, affected the dove hunting some. He said ideally he wanted to dig 3 days before the first frost. He was contracted to make so many tons, but got a different price for tonnage over contract. Early 80's also had lots of small grain crops around us, that went to pecan orchards.

Don't have the number anymore, sorry.

Good friend of mine used to run the Golden Peanut business around DeLeon/Dublin/etc back in the 80ís. They moved the business to TX/Oklahoma panhandle because of Aflatoxin levels. Farmers then had to sell their peanut allotment to folks up north for really low prices. Now most of the irrigated land has coastal on it. No idea where you find peanut hay now.

Our farmer was making a good living on about 100 acres of irrigated peanuts. You can drive through miles of pecans south of town near the lake.
