Food Plots?

3 posts in this topic

I have been thinking about starting a spring and fall food plot and i was just wondering what you guys have had good luck with? i was looking at some of the seed from the whitetail institute, maybe a chikory or clover? Are any of them good for spring and fall? maybe if you mow em off around august sometime? thanks for the input in advance guys!!

Antler King products are great too, try the trophy clover mix, which can last like 5 or 6 years on 1 planting. another one i have used is fall/winter/spring mix, can be planted whenever, and will start growing within 2 weeks! make sure you have a good PH (5.5 - 7 for most plants) or you will just be wasting your fertilizer, seed, and time. it is a commitment, but worth the results. have fun

what ever you buy, make sure you take a look at the seed content sticker, usually on the back or bottom of the bag. pay a special amount of time checking this out and finding out what percentage of the bag contains inert matter. sure a 50 lb bag may look cheap, but if it has a high percentage of inert material, you're just buying a 50 lb bag full of crap. just cause some seeds seem expensive compared to the bag next to them, doesn't mean its a rip off, it probably has a higher concentration of actually seed.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
