2011 Spring/summer food plots at club.
« on: March 10, 2011, 08:52:10 PM »
Well spring planting time is drawing nearer and I've ordered all our seed to plant two spring/summer food plots at the hunting club. When it comes to planting for our deer & turkey's nutrition we don't play at S & E Hunting club. You've heard it said, "you are what you eat" here's the list of seed I'll be planting and you'll see our deer are well fed.
3 50lb bags Soybeans
2 50lb bags Iron-clay cowpeas
2 50 lb bags Triticale
3 50lb bags Red milo
1 25lb bag Lab Lab
5 lbs each: Ladino clover,Arrowleaf clover,Berseem clover,Alfalfa,Chicory,Sainfoin,American joint vetch,Velvet beans...And 10 lbs of Chufa.
8 lbs Misc seed: Corn-Sunflower-Field peas-Turnip..Two mineral licks will be started when we plant as well. We hope to harvest our first 150 inch deer on the property very soon,lord only knows these animals are getting the needed nutrition and minerals. The rest of the puzzle is age and doe to buck ratios, and we're doing our parts in these areas as well.. Whats your plans for the spring & summer on your hunting properties?

frost seeded two perennial plots of monster mix with wti clover to replenish.  got 1500 acres of soybeans and corn next to my property line.  don't have to plant much just different variety.  mostly plant for fall hunting and winter forage.

We'll be planting some Iron Clay peas and Whitetail Institute Powerplant this spring mid April to late April.

  The two food plots I'll be planting total about 1 1/2 acres.  Yes they'll be over-seeded some what with the amount of seed we'll be using, but the various birds in the area always eat their fair share prior to it taking and starting to grow. Not including fertilizer and lime we'll have just under $500.00 dollars invested in this seed. Again, you are what you eat, so I'll always go for the best money can buy.

Glad to see others believe in feeding their future table fare as well.  I will be planting about 1 acre of PowerPlant and 2 acreas of corn and grain mix.  I also have a 1/2 acre clover plot that will get mowed and treated for weeds this spring.  Probably makes the cost of my venison greater than prime rib - but it is the personal effort and rewards that a price tag cannot be pinned upon that count for me.

You have enough seed there to plat over 5 acres.  maybe even more than 10.  Wow!  I think you can save TON of money.

That's what I was thinking - just one 50lb bag of Powerplant covers 1 1/2 acres @ around $110. I would think you would loose a lot of the less agressive plants before they ever get a chance to grow?
