Deer hunting food plots are a great addition to any property.
Deer Hunting Food Plots
We have been planting spring and fall plots for quite some time. It has made a huge difference in the health and quality of our herd. I highly recommend planting deer hunting food plots if you have the resources. In my opinion they are the best thing you can do to improve your herd. Deer hunting food plots will keep and hold deer on your property and improve the health of your herd.
Well, Friday I am looking forward to going and hunting one of our awesome food plots. We are getting a lot of rain today and tomorrow. It is supposed to clear out of here by then and I am planning on going to Jasper county. To see if I can get after those big bucks. I am really frustrated with the big bucks, they are not wanting to come out and play. I am still gonna be focusing on the food plots. I’m hoping to catch a big boy heading to one of our food plots right before dark.
This time of year has always been the hardest of the season for harvesting big bucks. I may find the thickest stuff I can find where nobody ever hunts and hunt there. I may have a better chance than at food plots. These dang big boys are so dang smart this time of year.
Some places around the country are just now experiencing the whitetail rut. I have never figured out why Alabama’s whitetail rut is so much later than where I have always hunted. It’s not that far from here but the whitetail rut a lot later there.
The other day I saw something I had never seen before. I saw a white fox squirrel. He wasn’t completely white but he was the whitest I’ve ever seen. I was able to get him on video and thought I would share it with you. When I first saw him I couldn’t believe my eyes. He was beautiful. It seems like this year I have seen more fox squirrel’s on our property. Just the other day I filmed a red fox squirrel. They are really big, almost the size of a big cat. I have seen many different colored fox squirrels over the years. It is neat seeing all the different color combinations in fox squirrels.
Get Kids Involved
I hope every one is having a great season so far and remember to get those kids involved in the great outdoors. We need to take them out and let them experience the outdoors and get them interested in the outdoors at a young age. I can’t wait to take my sons with me so they can learn about wildlife preservation and preserving wildlife habitat.
Just a couple of days ago my three year old son asked me, daddy when are you going to take me deer hunting? I was hoping he would show an interest in it, and I told him I would take him with me soon. I did a post a few days ago about my cousins son Payton harvesting his first buck. My cousin was in the stand with him when Payton took him. I know that was a memory they both will cherish forever. I hope one day to be there with my sons when they harvest their first bucks.
