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.

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
