serious food plot question

Postby saddaddykiller » Mon Sep 15, 2008 2:31 pm

some of our plots have gotten too big and i tried planting canes that i had dug up from a nearby area(baby canes)...every one died...i tried planting straight up and i tried laying them down and covering if u know wut i mean....i planted pine trees but some crazy feller bushhogged em down cause he (forgot)....wut im trying to do is plant in a straight line (several lanes)to make the plot permanently smaller so that when we do the plots we can clearly see where to stop......so wut ide like to know is...is there anything besides pines and canes that i can plant that will grow purdy fast and thick....if NOT....can someone please tell me how to dig up and replant baby canes, we have millions of canes to dig up and replant around...thanks in advance

bad thing about canes is they multiply and not necessarily next to where they are planted .... they might come up 30 feet from where they are. they could take over the food plot.

i would try the pines and just flag them until they got big enough

If you want something to grow fast...try transpanting some sweet gum trees...they are not worth anything and don't produce food for deer but they will grow fast and thick....

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Sweet gums are as bad as, if not worse than, canes! They'll spread everywhere! And, you can bushhog over a stand of 10-yo canes...not so much with sweetgums.

I believe I would rather have kudzu than cane or sweetgums.

like gtk said, we wanna make the deer feel a little more comfortable, but also because we just had trrees thinned and they used plots as turn arounds and therefore the plots are even bigger now...i had two instances last season where i saw 2 mature bucks in 2 different plots and they were both barely out of range and i have never wounded a buck, and u know them bucks, most the time they are gonna hug the wood line..in my hunting experience i have actually seen the more mature bucks in our smallest plots that have trees INSIDE the plot, i think it has to do alot with the smaller plots stay mowed down from the deer, and they like it when it regrows and is fresh, in the bigger plots yes they do eat, but the plot will have alot more growth and they will not stay and feed for the period of time like they will in a smaller plot..

I agree and drive metal fence posts to mark the parts where the trees are
One or two metal posts through a tractor tire and everyone will know where they are supposed to bush hog :bash:
