How are your Food Plots doing?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
