Successful Shed Hunting Trip
It was really nice here in Kansas yesterday so I got out a shed hunting trip. We didn’t find any big bucks sheds but it was a successful trip never the less. I don’t know where all those big sheds are. We plan on going shed hunting again real soon and finding them. They are out there. I have some friends that have been doing some shed hunting and they are finding some really nice sheds. I have got several more places that I need to get out and check for sheds. I’m also going to establish some more mineral licks.
Trail Camera Pictures Shed Hunting
I also put out some mineral/vitamin supplement and block and put put my favorite trail camera which is a Moultrie. I did a lot of walking and was able to find a nice little shed. It was a little 8 pointer that I had several Moultrie trail camera pictures of.
I also plan on getting another Moultrie Game Spy to put out.
Micro Food Plots
I am also thinking of doing some small food plots behind my house. I want to plant some corn and soybeans to leave standing so during the harsh winter months they have here in the mid-west once most of the other crops are harvested I’ll still have some standing food sources that the heavy snow fall won’t cover up and the whitetails will stay in the area. Having standing food during the winter months should really attract and hold the whitetails on the deer hunting property. If you have standing crops during the cold winter months it can be as or more action packed as when the rut is in full swing. When it is cold the whitetails must eat so they will be hitting those food sources hard.
Improve Your Hunting Property
So now is the time to start thinking about what you can do to improve your deer hunting property to better your chances of harvesting that buck of a lifetime this deer season. And you can plant some small fairly inexpensive food plots that will make a big difference in getting a chance at a buck of a lifetime. You will thank yourself if you do plant some small food plots when you are still seeing deer late in the season when everyone else says they are not seeing as many deer as they were earlier in the season.
I saw a great hunting show last night that was talking about this very thing. Midwest Whitetail which is one of my favorite shows had a very good show about micro plots. Midwest Whitetail has a lot of great shows and their website is very good as well. So if you get a chance check out their website Midwestwhitetail.com.
