My plot-before and after pictures

Postby huntall » Tue Sep 13, 2011 3:13 pm

This was my first try at a summer plot. I planted 150# of iron clay peas in may. They grew like crazy even without rain for long periods. I had lots of peas, but deer would eat them as fast as they put on. The peas finally got eat down to the ground this past week. I need to plant my winter plot quickly
so the deer will have a fresh plot to graze in!

Here is a picture of my plot before the deer eat it down.

This is a picture after they eat it down.

If you could just get some peas they would not eat until Oct 1 you would be in business.

I did peas the 1st week of July and they ate them down. I disked half of them in yesterday and sowed 25 more lbs and mixed in 25 each of wheat and oats.

Looks like you should have some fat deer.

They will devour peas as fast as you can plant them. You need to mix it up if you want to keep them coming back..

Did you see the peas that is going up the tree in the 2cnd picture?
That is how long these peas will run if not eat! It looks at least 15 feet up the tree
With peas on it out of the deers reach. thats a lot of food for the deer to have eat down!

Your plot certainly served the purpose to provide an attraction and give the deer nutrition. The deer look healthy and obviously are eating in your plot regularly. So just keep planting over and over as they eat it down and they will keep coming back for more. You may want to plant in sections with different things so that there will always be something growing for them to eat.

Hope you can drop a couple of those deer the first week of season to help put points on the board for our Team 2!
