Fall food plot progress

Recommended Posts

Just curious how everyones fall planted plots are coming. Just checked ours out, the oats and rye are about 3 inches now. The other small plots are just coming up, can't tell what it is though. Planted rape, kale, and turnips. The stuff coming up looks like two leafed siamese clover. Its raining right now in cheesehead land, which is needed. We planted the 29th of Aug. Will be hauling some black dirt/manure mix from the barnyard next spring for the smaller plots in the woods. Food plots are certainly fun and interesting, is pleasing to see something come from sweat and blisters.

We put in 9 different food plots in a meadow on our property, some are 10'x10' others are 10'x30' and we have a few that are 3'x30'. The larger ones are doing best, they haven't had as much competition from the surrounding clover/grass. Some we planted in June others in Aug., on Labor Day my brother put fenced cages out in all the plots and on Fri., 4 days later the plots we planted in June had grown 4-6" higher inside the cage. The plots we planted in Aug. you couldn't tell any difference, I think they got a little stunted from the frost in Aug.

    • Had to go back and see if it was you that posted this one: 😀
    • World famous. Browned pork, Italian seasoning, onions, garlic. Then hash browns with cheese.
    • Season is young yet fellas, hopefully it stays dry for a while, we ran into lots of water and crops as well. The kid dropped the only rooster we saw on Saturday , lots of hens though. The neighbor out that away saw a small brood of chicks 2 weeks ago, real late hatch but hopefully they came out ok in the rain last week.
    • Spent a week grouse hunting around Grand Rapids. Left on Saturday Oct 13 because I tired of running into Ruffed Grouse Society yahoos using Minnesota birds to bring in $$$ so they can buy more white pickups with Ruffed Grouse Society painted on the side driven by PHD's that are clueless as to why there was such a disparity between the 2017 drumming count and the actual number of birds on the ground. Saw or heard a total of 12 grouse and 7 woodcock for the week. My experience was the same as knoppers.   
    • Saw nothing yesterday. Too many crops and too much water everywhere.
    • I thought that was what it was.   Thanks for the ID.
    • yea they eat up the acorns. I have soo many acorns, the tree rats cannot put a dent in them.
    • I have always liked the blue jays also. SO much food here they all get along pretty well. 
    • parise looks very slow out there, he was terrible in OT. hopefully the wild can turn this poor play around soon.
    • OK I am now a fan of blue jays. had a woodpecker, a larger one, not the downy on my house, it pecked a few times, I pounded on the wall it flew off into the tree, as I watched it through the window, it landed on the side of the garage ready to go to business, and a blue jay flew at it and chased it off, it happened two times, then the woodpecker flew off. I also had a blue jay chase off bees, they made a paper nest on my eaves in one day, I watched a blue jay land on it, and jump around, the bees would come out, the jay would fly off. then the jay repeated this numerous times until the nest fell off, bees left.
