Low budget food plot
« on: August 18, 2016, 07:52:55 AM »
I wanted to post this to show you do not need a tractor and a bunch of attachments to put in a food plot. All you need it a hand held sprayer, hand held seeder and a atv. I simply went in and sprayed the area with round up, then I spread my Buchatash seed in the tall standing weeds. The final step is I ran over everything with my atv and now I set back and wait. I plan on getting a bag of 12-12-12 fert and spreading it on this coming weekend. I will post update pic's of plot growing. I did this in less than a hour.

I've done similar things with decent results as well.  The only thing I've added which may not align with Snort's low budget theme is the little groundhog disk which mounts in the 2" receiver of my ATV.  It will cut up those weeds and open the soil up.  I still run over everything after seeding just to press the seed into the soil.  By the way, my trial run with Snort's Buckatash is starting to look really good.  You guys ought to try a bag.

OFG-Buckatash is the food plot seed blend that Snortwheeze has started selling just recently.  I got some in the ground in early August, it's looking great and the deer are already using it.  It's on the back end of my property, but I can see it from the house.  Will be really interested in seeing how much traffic it gets now that our corn & beans are starting to be taken out of the surrounding fields.

I have honestly not been back to check it out since a 10 days after planting. I got busy with in the fields and have not had time. The next rain out I will get over there and take a pic.
