Planting a Plot

Postby jpuff » Wed Nov 03, 2010 9:19 pm

When is it to late to plant a plot for this year? Thinking about putting in a plot wondering if its to late in the year to do so?
If not what do you think is the best food plot to use?

I'd say its too late now... Frost will most likely kill any young plants... Course I could be wrong, I'm no farmer, although I'd like to be some days...haha

Yea I was thinking the same thing. I was just wondering if there was something that I didn't know was out there. I guess I will start planning one for next year. Now i have to find out what is a good food plot for next year? I might put a small one here at my house and help a friend with a bigger one. Any ideas on a good food source open for ideas?

When should we start to plant a food plot? I know it is still a little early, but I would like to know when I should get out there and start planting. Thanks.

It depends on what you want to plant for your food plot, and in your area, We plant early spring, most of the time, I also like, alfalfa. clover, is my # choice, At our lease, we plant , anything from milo, clover, alfalfa, beans... and we do a speccial plot for my son, chicory blend...Clover last up top 5 years, and needs to be mowed a few times in the summer, But no replanting every year, like some...Hope this helps...Teresa from Missouri

That does help. I guess the way to go if you don't have a lot of money is to go the clover route since it grows back for a couple years. That would help bigtime. I would also like to know what kinds of plants to use for an area that doesn't get a whole lot of sun?

There is alot of stuff you can plant with low sun, go to Whitetail Insituite, they have all kinds of stuff..They have a now plow also, that works in hard to get places...But we haven't had much luck with it...They have videos, magazines...and specials...

Corn is one of the best attractants for the price if allowed. If you can afford a feeder or two, that is the way to go. I have used the deer cane mineral blocks with some success. Acorn and greens enraged works well, but you have to use them at the right times of the year. Use the acorn rage during the times when there are acorns around. Use the greens eraged when there is nothing around. Other than that, you kinda have to mix and match and see what the deer want.
