Food Plot
« on: November 28, 2016, 06:05:09 PM »
I drilled the seed on my food plots Labor Day weekend.  We haven't had any rain since then.  Now we are expecting 3" of rain in the next three days.  Do you think that the seed will come up now?  We are still getting upper 60's to low 70's during the day and 30-40's at night.  What do you think...Oh one more piece of info I planted WMS Alabama Blend, oats, wheat and Tall Tine Tubers and Austrian Winter peas.  I know the peas are gone since they actually came up and then died from lack of rain

Don't know about the tubers, suspect they'll struggle, but the wheat & oats have a chance, just a question of whether they get big enough for the deer to pay attention to them.

I think you will be pleasantly surprised in about a week. Seed can lay dormant for a good while and still come up!! @--0--0101

Yari, it is strange at what a range we have here on TH.  We will have 60-70's till after Christmas, and our season goes all the way till Feb 10th this year.  I may actually have some really good late season hunting.  I'm hoping since I drilled the seed some of it is still there.

Buckone I hope you're right. The Alabama Blend has triticale in it which has proven to be a grower here.

Well we got rain yesterday, then today we are getting more and have more forecast for Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Well we got about 4.5 inches of rain over the last 7 days.  I thought that any seed that germinated would need 7-10 days to grow which would put it about Wednesday.... so I'm thinking that late season ok I'm going to be good.  Now Friday weather, with this new growth if there is any, high for Friday  28 with strong winds....windchill in the teens to single digits.  UGGHHHH I may not have a hunting season this year.
