This past summer, I worked an entirely new piece of ground and planted 3 foods plots totally 1 acre in size. I did everything myself from bush hogging, spraying, plowing, rock picking, discing, seeding, fertilizing and liming. I seeded the plots with Winter Rye, Buck Forage Oats, Winter Peas and Ladino CloverThe whole job took about 2 weeks and I couldn't have been happier with the results....

The archery season began in mid October, we had lots of deer sightings but no real good shots offered until the rut kicked in. I was able to down this small buck at last light filling my archery either sex tag.
As gun season rolled around, I took a perch in the same stand I took my buck and not 10 minutes into the hunt, 3 hungry does strolled in for dinner and I shot the largest.
In late November, I was hunting a staging area about 150 yards from the food plot when this heavy horned 12 point showed up trailing does. This was the best deer huntI've ever been on. Full story in General Hunting.
Now I'm looking forward to hunting the plots this spring for when the Boss gobbler feels like strutting for his ladies. Bring em on!
