S&E Hunting club Wilcox County Alabama
« on: December 08, 2010, 12:35:50 PM »
Here at S&E we've managed to turn our lil 620 acre property around. In 1994 I started our QDM program and added to it to take us to where we now are. We have a "Quality" feeding program in place which runs year-round. As soon as deer season runs out here in Alabama our trough feeder is filled with high quality feed, and kept full until we plant our spring and summer food plots. We plant 2-4 spring food plots each year we high quality seed, and start our mineral licks at this time. Our mineral licks are vital to growing big bodied "healty" deer on our property, and with-out a doubt our mineral licks is our most important program of all. The spring food plots and mineral licks are key to our goal..This not only keeps the game on our property, but more important, it gives our deer herd a jump start headed into that all important antler growing season. Timing is everything, our spring plots and mineral licks are put into place by the 2nd week of april. Our fall food plots are planted by the 3rd week of september. Our enhanced habitat program adds to the quality browse on our property and will make each location as good as the next...Our yearly plantings in this area include:( honeysuckle,blackberrys,crabapple trees,chestnut trees) These just to name a few. Bottom line is we have quality feed and browse on our property all year round, and its a small price to pay to ensure outstanding hunting for years to come. Adding watering holes has also helped a great deal, its key to have "some sort" of water on your property year round. I'm not here to brag or come off like a know it all, but I am here to tell you that for anything in this world that is good, theres a price we must pay..Just doing all this is'nt enough, you have to be willing to let those young bucks walk, and do your very best to get your buck to doe ratio under control. Good luck my fellow sportsmen and ladys, and hope all your hunts are good ones..Hunt hard, hunt smart, and hunt safe..Above all enjoy...

Sounds great! The first key is to have a detailed plan and have everyone on board. Sounds like you have accomplished that it will pay off for years.

they are all needed in a perfect world, but if I had to pick one it would be selective buck harvest. they have to have a chance to get big.

 @--0--0134 from Georgia!!!

QDM is very important we've been at it for many years on our lease and it will pay off.

My top choice is selective buck harvest. Got to get some age on those bucks.

Sounds like you have a really good program going there. Keep it up, I'm sure you will reap the benifits in years to come.

270mag,
I choice the enhanced food plots as the deer in my area live of the local crops and mast production, hunting pressure is to great for QDM.

In my area of Virgina the deer have a lot of ag crops to get to all year around.  Selective buck and doe harvest would really help our herd but that isn't how the locals think and are not going to change.  Have placed good access to minerals on the 20 acres and have one of the only year round water sources here.  Plant year round food plots for extra brouse for the deer.
