finally... took off work yesterday & planted:

- 6 lbs of white clover
- 150 lbs of wheat
- 50 lbs Austrian WInter Peas

That, combined with my 2 acres of corn, should be plenty :) They will have their choice of green or yellow :)


Last year, the deer would often walk rigth thru the corn to munch on wheat or honeysuckle... Go figure.. Isnt hunting a corn field supposed to be an "unfair" advantage?

I always see more in the soybean fields until about 2 weeks after they're cut.

today, while telling someone about planting my food plots, it suddenlly dawned on me..... A couple months ago, I had bought several bags of different Mossy-Oak Biologic stuff, to plant this year. The store was selling it cheap at the time.

So, guess what I forgot all about? Yep, that biologic stuff is still sitting where I left it in my office at home :roll:

geesh... now i guess i'll have to find time to do another plot..

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

You sound like me. I've got a bag of seeds still in my shed, I don't think I'm going to plant them though.

If I can find someone to break up a little spot behind my house I might plant them there. I've been hearing of deer being spotted back there and if I could get them to coming to a plot there, that'd be freaking sweet. I'd even wake up a few neighbors every once in a while too. :oops:

Good Idea !

I need to fix up a spot behind my house for the deer. Then I could put my webcam up & watch from work :)

Got a good shower on our plots too. 8) Hopefully more than the wheat will come on up now. The winter peas and oats don't appear to be popping up yet.
