Summer Plots Are Great
We have always wanted the bottoms planted in summer crops and this year we have been able to accomplish that with help from Nathan (son), Jay and Abby (daughter and son-in-law). This is the field I want to hunt this fall and winter.
This field, well fertilized, is planted in soybeans, grain sorghum, and sunflowers. The deer are starting to use it and the bucks are getting protein like they have never before. It is going to be an interesting year seeing if this higher nutritional level will have and effect on the deer herd.
This field at the kudzu patch is about an acre and a half and it is planted in chufa, brown-top millet, sunflowers and some soybeans but the deer have eaten most of the soybeans and sunflowers already. In the background the corn is looking good with all this rain we are having.
Last year was the worst food plots for wildlife we had ever had, this year we are going to have the best!
This has not just happened, it has taken a lot of money, time and good rain fall.
