500 acres of food plots

Recommended Posts

Thats how many acres Lee and Tiffany from The Crush are planting this year. A total of something like 82 different plots. I'd be more than thrilled just to have 500 acres total to hunt in prime whitetail country. I wonder how much land they have to hunt in total. Unreal.

Ya I would about believe it. I've heard of some places down south that have thousands and thousands of acres are actually hiring agronomists to help grow "Plots" to keep the deer healthy and grow big racks. Wish i could find one of those positions.

lee and tiffany only own 400 acres, which are about 30 miles from the illinois border. they lease thousands for their filming and what not. i know this, because i asked them at the MN deer classic in march how much land they own/lease for hunting across the midwest. i also asked them their average stand height while filming hunts. u'd be supprised how high up they are thinking it looks like they are way up based on camera footage. but its not very high. it depends on the terrain.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
