Finally got everything ready!

Whats happening in your neck of the woods ?

Finally got everything ready!

Postby buckcrazy » Sun Oct 15, 2017 10:17 am

Been super busy trying to transform my land into hunting land. This place never had food plots, roads or anything hunting related except a couple stands that were falling apart watching some trails. As most of you know I’ve been working on the land since I got it in March and yesterday we finally got the last stands up. Planted the fields 2 weeks ago and have only had 1 rain last week so I was surprised how well the plots have come in. We didn’t get soil tests done this year so I have no clue what I need for optimum growing plots but figured we would just throw an mix out there. Seems to be taking alright so far.
Also planted the hill with rye grass between the shed and pond to help keep the soil from washing down. Seems to be helping out.

It's amazing what determination, hard work and fortitude, can do. You have done a great job in a short time. Got the place looking wonderful. I know you are proud and looking forward to many years of family enjoyment on the property.

Yeah jv, we put an average of 125 lbs of 10-10-10 per acre. I usually put the standard 13-13-13 but I got an amazing deal on 40lb bags of 10-10-10 so I figured I’d give it a try. Walmart discounted all the 10-10-10 a few weeks ago down to $2 a bag, making room for Christmas stuff so they just want it gone. They do it every year I was told. When I talked to the co-op and explained that I hadn’t done soil tests and what fertilizer I was using they recommend 125 per acre so that’s what I went by. I’ve still got 5 bags of seed so I’m going to go fill in the bare spots on some of the plots next weekend. I went ahead and over bought seeds to be sure I had enough. I’ve also got some clover that I’m going to throw down but I’m going to wait until November as I’ve always had better luck with it “frost” seeded.

Thanks terry, can’t wait to show my wife and kids the progress that I’ve made. They’re wrapped up with the kids soccer season right now so they haven’t seen it in about 3 months in which a lot has changed. I’ve been going up as much as possible but not trying to miss to many games because the land will always be there but the memories of them playing only last so long. Trying to put priorities in order and still get things done.

Btw, don’t think I haven’t thought about getting some electricity to a stand or two. I’m trying to come up with a plan. If not I have plans for solar panels on each one to charge the phones.

You should be ready for season to get here, I have seen deer walk through a field that has not been fertilized to get to one that has...it just makes it sweeter for the deer.

lol, a little of both. By having access to my phone it will give me more time to hunt being able to stay in contact with my employees. Killing two birds with one stone!! I just switched from AT&T to Verizon because I couldn't get service hardly anywhere with AT&T. Verizon works fine everywhere on the property.
