Just looking to talk some food plot ideas - What do you guys have the best luck with for a late season plot? Do you do anything special for fall plot preps? How about some pictures of bucks taken off kill plots? 137 days till archery opener...

I’ve heard some does are bred in late January/early February and here’s proof. Probably end up being wolf lunch.

I don’t think it has any wildlife value.  From what I’ve researched, it’s toxic and a pain in the butt to get rid of. I wonder if it was in the evolved harvest mix. Pretty sure it’s native to the southeast U.S. but not sure about the Midwest.

Devils tomato. Also called Bull nettle I believe.

Does anyone know what this plant is? It is only where I seeded a small patch in a larger plot. I used Evolved Harvest.

Outfishn I got the same results with brassica.    Thought I would have less than perfect germ rste and got 2 inches of rain on a spray and no til application.   


Junkie my brassicas were yellow 3 weeks in and i fire 25 lbs of 19/19/19 on them and now they are glow in the dark green.    

Also a tiny oats peas wheat rye plot.   2 weeks old.

1 acre 1st year plot of brassicas, oats, rye, red clover and a few peas. Got the brassicas way to heavy on this one and although nice and green, stunted and probably not going to produce much for bulbs.

Couple updated pics. 1st year 1/4 acre brassica plot doing pretty good although it’s planted to heavy. Wish I would’ve planted a little lighter and 2 weeks earlier. Deer are starting to nip at the greens so I just spread milorganite to hold them off for a bit. See how it works.

My winter rye 6 days from planting, weather has cooperated well with rain a times over the past week. 

Starting to get some nice bulbing on my brassica plot too! Exciting to see but I am getting a little yellowing/spotting on the leaves in some areas. Not sure if its a nutrient thing or maybe too much water this past week. I know it happens in my garden with radishes too and they still bulb out fine, but I feel like the deer aren't going to graze on it as much. I guess we'll see.

Fin - it all depends where you are. Northern WI I don't doubt that it doesn't seed out. The main idea of winter rye is to have green when everything else is brown and dead and the rye still be young and tender.  Since it will grow on your driveway it's a nice, cheap seed to throw out as a stand alone or filler.  I kill it all in april right after everyone is done w turkey hunting.

Granpa, yes great timing on your turnips.  Brassica plots are actually tough at times cause the ones planted early w intentions of getting them big have a greater chance to fail. No rain, browsed etc. I stay away from them entirely the last 10 years but to each his own. Good luck to you this season
