Food Plot, any help would be great!!

6 posts in this topic

My in-laws live on 5 acres, and at the back of their land they are about 100-150 yards to a river bottom. They always have deer comming into their yards all year round munching and rubing the trees in their yard. Well my father-in-law tilled up and area about 10' by 30' and said that i could plant food plot there. Now I can not hunt that area as of yet as my MIL does not want me to shoot the deer but they both want to watch them. My question is, can I just by a bag of food plot seed from like cableas or gander and have succecess? The area has been worked up and is similar to what a fresh garden would look like in the spring. Any help or comments would be great!! Also is it to late to plant yet this fall or should I wait until spring? Thanks in advance!!!

You might have some luck with a winter wheat or rye but I would probably wait until spring to get better results. If they just want to watch some deer I would throw out a salt lick and some apples.

or you can plant biologic hot spot. It only takes a few days to come in, and works great with no equipment.

winter wheat and winter rye wood be best to plant next weekend, if you want to plant something for the winter, then it'll be there in the spring and come up nicely. if you were thinking heavier foliage like turnips, clovers, or brassicas, then next spring would be best. it depends a bit too though, how much sun will the plot get during the day? the heavier foliage needs a good 6 hours a day to reach full potential.

What is the coolest Temp I can plant that stuff? (Hot Spot?)

Can you plant that stuff when its 40 degrees outside?

You can surely plant it, but you need daytime heat to get things rolling and growing.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
