Deer Food Plots
« on: October 03, 2013, 10:56:23 PM »
Since Marty and I leave for Colorado Monday, the food plots had to be done today.
 

 
 I subsoiled Monday with a single shank subsoiler.  No rocks here.   ;D  I was down about 12"-14"
 

 
Then this morning I broke it up with the disk.
 

  
The seeds were mixed using a precise ultra secret and carefully guarded formula.   ;D
 

 
The seed and fertilizer was then distributed.
 

 
The disk blades were now straight and the drag/harrow hooked up to cover the seed.  Almost immediately after I finished, I got a nice little rain and we are looking for more tomorrow and Saturday.  As warm as it is, those seed should really sprout.   :)

I plant 4 plots.  Two that we hunt and two that we do not.  I also have ~150 acres of timber where no hunting is allowed.

There should be good growth when we get back from Colorado.   ;D

Good luck again this year Lynn.  I got my 3 plots in about 3 months ago. The deer are hitting them. I hope to get something this year. Got skunked on my own place but got 2 in w. va last year. Freezer is empty.

Nice, looks like a double bonus, go to the mountains, hunt, come home and more hunting,  8)  I can even see where I might set up, just over by those separated oaks on the far side of the plot, looks kinda like a state park,  ;D    david
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

In the sorta top right corner of the second picture, you can see the Straw House.  :)  There was a huge Red Oak tree behind it but lightning struck and killed it.  It finally fell last year.   :-\
