I'm thinking about putting a food plot on public land, I want to do it all using hand tools there are alot of seeds that claim no till, just wanted to know if you guys have any good brands to look at.

As soon as the snow flies this bean field should start getting hit.  5 acres and it is loaded with pods. 


Took this picture yesterday as I was getting some of the cameras set for the post hunting season inventory.

Welderguy - I would call that success.  Now if you are able to harvest a mature buck off of that, even better.


Last night was our (12 yo son and I) first hunt out.  We had 10 deer come to our 1/4 acre FP.  No horns, but I would say all the work we put in is yielding results  So a very successful hunt.

Looking to clear some land next year to put in a food plot which is already about 1/3 of an acre in size, but looking to make it a little larger about a 1/2 to 3/4 so I'm able to put some soybeans or just a bigger plot to hold more deer. I was wondering what a reasonable price would be to clear about a 1/2 acre of 2 to 3 inch a round trees?

Hey Perchin  You should still be able to get in Oats and/or Winter Rye with no problems. You could even broadcast brassicas on top. They probably won't get to full maturity but that's okay, you will have some green when the frost hits.

Terribly busy the past 2 months, took time to kill weeds but haven't tilled yet. Should I just forget about plots this year or is there anything anyone reccomends to plant this late that will be worthwhile? Thanks in advance.

Here are 2 of my plots planted 7/15. Both are no till plots just under 1/4 ac. a pc. Just used an ATV and a drag I fabricated. Cultipacked with ATV. They have brassicas, radishes, clover, oats. Forecast for rain yesterday so went up and broadcast winter rye and fertilizer (46-0-0) into the plots just before the rain hit.
