    Our plots aren't as good this year for some reason. We just put out some more oats Sunday to over seed before this rain. Hope it comes up!

    Been working on a piece of dirt for a new food plot to add to my Whitetail Institute Clover. Waited for the rain to be forecast and got the seeds sewn on 8/15. Tall Tine Tubers,winter bulbs and beets, and antler Kings slamdunk with rape,radishes, forage peas,and buckwheat. The rain came and I'm pretty sure my work will pay off. Just five years ago this was a pine stand.

    We are trying a mix from a friend of ours. It has triticale, oats, brassica, radish, and collards. We also planted WI Winter Peas and WI Oats. Should be a good mix for both early bow season and late gun season. We'll see how it turns out.

    LOL great idea!

    We started the burning process last night but only got 1 plot done and half of another before it got dark on us. I hope we don't get too much rain this weekend before we can get finished. We are going to hustle to get the plots done before the storm!

    So, use more bait! If y'all could stalk and shoot (like real hunters) you wouldn't have to go to this level of effort or expense to cheat. Just sayin' . . .
    Have to give them a reason to stay on your property! I CAN stalk and shoot by the way! ;) lol

Pretty ghetto compared to that Taj Mahal of a plot Big E has, but it's the best I can do up here in hillbilly country. I'd guess it at about 1/10 of an acre, but man does it pull them in up here where there ain't much to eat.
    Hey bud those small plots are killer. All you need in some cases! I'm putting one in like that at my house on a power line right of way. Probably only 100' long x 20' wide. I think it will produce!
