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.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
