Food Plots Planted Growing

The food plots planted this spring.

We got our deer hunting food plots planted and they should be coming up by now. My dad always does a great job planting our plots. He has so much experience farming. It sure comes in handy at deer camp. I haven’t had a chance to get to the deer camp to check my trail camera. And see the property since some logging was done, and they were planted.

A few reminders on your summer plots to help get the best results out of your plots.

Food Plots Planted

Spray plots for weeds when weeds are four to twelve inches tall. Also when clover reaches 10 to 12 inches tall mow down to 4 to 6 inches. Don’t mow to low or to often though. You don’t want them to burn during the summer heat. The heat can really take a toll on your plots.

Also during early fall fertilize with a 0-20-20 or similar fertilizer. Apply when it is dry.

Hopefully I will have some good trail camera photographs to share soon. We have been seeing several nice buck tracks on our property. I need to get the cameras out and see what our herd is looking like.

Hopefully we don’t have another drought like we did last year. That was the worst drought I can remember in all my years. Everything was so dry it was bad. It really is a fire hazard when it is so dry. You have to be real careful about burning. You don’t want to catch the whole county on fire. Your neighbors would not like that very much. If you ever do any control burning make sure to have the proper permits. Only burn when you have the right conditions as well.

It is great to be posting again and hopefully much more often now.
