gtk, if you lose your hunting land, I might be able to hook you up in Marshall county. I have a possibility.

Come on now.....

You know that you have an open invitation with me anytime; hunting or fishing.

It's just that sometimes you seem too scared....

That goes back to that old saying "you can pick your friends but you can't pick your kin". If you lose your place let me know, I may know of a couple small places. Now if I were kin to you I would probably say "I hate it for you".

:shock: We sort of got off subject but I am going to replant greens this spring and hit the high spots with some peas till it gets dry this summer. I made a home made 4 wheeler disk to use on the high spots cause it dont get dry in Pyland bottom till late june.

Whatever you plant, dont forget the LIME.

If you know where your are putting a plot, go ahead and get a soil test now, & lime accordingly.

Amen on the soil samples, :? never could figure out why my clover in one spot bearly broke out of the ground. Got a soil sample run, the dirt had nothing to give to the clover, :cry: except dirt for cover. But that has change now, although it did need nearly twice as much lime as fertlizer. :D I will not lose any more food plots becuase I didn't have a sample test done.

Does any one use the hand held soil tester for the PH count.I got one last year . I put 4 tons of lime on little over a acre . But going to hit it again soon with that much or more. But what would be good to plant for summer? Was thinking vitch & cow peas mix.

4 tons per year per acre is a heck of a lot of lime :shock: Any of the peas will be good just be prepared to replant as they will eat them up. Im going to plant more turnip greens in march and hopefully the clover will get in high gear by then :)

I'm going to try to beat the rain and get some lime and 0-20-20 fertilizer out and hope that it doesn't wash away :? . I have a little arrowleaf and crimmson clover left overfrom this past fall and will be over sowing a couple of plots and trying to restart another. I'm not sure about one of the places I'm working on, open fields that will have beans more than likely on it and no cover what so ever, but is surrounded by superb bedding area: hardwoods, pines and old cut-over thickets. When it is dog hunted the deer will run right down the middle of the wide open straight across the field. I'm hopeing that my dad will let me plant some corn somewhere and leave it standing til next year. If that plan doesn't float, I will try to at least sow some corn along a few of the natural ditches to give the deer some cover and create a funnel to a stand or two :twisted: . There is a few acres on the very back side that is in CRP grass that I hope I can get a clover patch started in :wink: .
Oh, I wanted to ask if any of yall think that you can put out too much lime??

too much lime? You probably can, but I doubt it will hurt anymore than not having enough lime :)

That would be my assumption too. Time will even it back out.

Our Durana Clover plots at Rocky Hill Hunting Club have done exceptional this Spring. We planted them in September with wheat and oats as directed by our area Biologist and the Wheat and Oats are about gone and the clover has jumped in some places to about 12 inches some places 3-4 inches but it all looks Great :D :D . We gave it a shot of 0-20-20 about 2 weekas ago and the Lord watered it for us......Ed :wink:
Thank God for each and every opportunity that You have to take a kid hunting and set an example.
