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...
Fall food plot
Planted Winter Rye for the first time this year in late August, it grew really fast and the deer hammered it the first 2 to 3 weeks. After that it was just ok. If I plant it again I would try late October or early Nov. I'm in the Sheboygan area if that helps.
My plots have been very quiet lately. Not sure what to make of it. Weather? Not palatable? Better food in the area maybe. I haven’t hunted yet so my property is not pressured.
Planted 3 acres of rye, oats, peas and tillage radish and the plots are beautiful and the deer hammered the radish greens but haven’t been utilizing them much now that the radish greens are mostly gone. Hopefully the rye gets more activity with colder weather but so far it’s been a little bit of a disappointment. Learning experience for sure!
Mature does are bred first, produce first fawns . They are sexually mature in secondary rut . I have seen a pair playing the game on New years day . Produce single ,late fawns . Not many survive the first winter .
Back to food plots. Today I tossed an apple core on my lawn after driving up . After fish fry there were two does on the spot . Not more than 30 few from house with the yard light on .
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.
Do Deer eat it?
Devils tomato. Also called Bull nettle I believe.
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.
