Beatutiful!!! Surprised you dont have a nice shoot house sitting in the corner. I see the ladder stand in the second pic though. How much money does it cost to plant something that size roughly?

RoadRanger,

I use 8 lbs of Durana clover seed per acre. The seed will run appx. $7.00 a pound.
I soil test all my food plots, lime and fertilize by MSU's recommendations.

These Durana plots are either 2 or 3 years old. With proper care, Durana clover is supposed to last over 5 years. It is also a 25% protein food source.

With this clover, you do not have to disk and plant every year.

Yellow Lab, the first year if I understand corectly I need to mix wheat with it because the first seeding of clover does not come on strong till after winter.Is that correct?

Wheat or oats is an option to give your plot forage the 1st growing season. The Durana will come on stong in the spring.
