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.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
