How are your Food Plots doing?

5 posts in this topic

So far so good here. Everything is up (corn, rapeseed, alfalfa) and the rains are helping. A big part of the fun of food plots for me is when everything is first emerging. So cool to see all those sprouts. I hope yours are doing good!

I've got some RR soybeans that are coming up. They are coming in a pretty thin, so I am starting to think up a back up plan if they don't get much thicker. Clover trails that were put in last year look great.

Here is a pic of a tiny clover plot from last weekend. The plot is a couple of years old. It sits at the edge of a swamp and only gets nibbled on a little when the ag fields are up. But once the farmers fields are plowed the deer mow this little plot to the ground. A pontoon was sitting in this spot for a several years. When it was moved I just raked some clover seed into the exposed black dirt.

I talked with a rancher where I have my food plots in North Dakota and he tells me with the recent rains, all three are looking good.

I haven't been up to see mine in a couple weeks, but they were looking good early and it seems like the rainfall since then has been almost ideal. I need to get up there in the next few weeks for some spraying and mowing, also am hoping to get a new plot ready for fall planting this year.

Wow is it nice to have some rain again.

My 2 plots at home look real good.

Up north, we have rain finally, so I am assuming things are doing decent up there too. Some heat would go a long way with the rains though. Corn is WAY behind for sure.

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
