kinder care
« on: August 26, 2018, 08:56:55 PM »
I went to the cabin for the first time since I planted 4 weeks ago. I got 2 rains of 1 1/2" total the first week and then nothing. as expected, I got good germination but not much growth. maybe 2-3" in 4 weeks. the good news I got 3" of rain Friday right after I fertilized.

here are some pics of my youngsters/ kinder care. I don't have a buck older than 2 1/2 years old on cam, just like last year. I have 9-10 different bucks. it seems i'm great at raising them and they move away. this is my 'pond plot'. I can watch this plot from the cabin during dinner and beverages. I have a blast watching my kids. and as always, as soon as my brassicas come up my kids pound them. they never wait for a freeze. this plot got weedy as did the cabin plot. the other 2 look a lot better.

Looking good Yari - that 8 pointer in the second picture has some potential and you just never know where the big boys are.  Once the does come into estrus there may be some cruisers coming through.  Keep the food plots up and you'll have better odds of scoring as it will hold the does and they'll bring in the bucks. 

I have quite a few does & fawns here around the house, typically don't catch the bucks on camera until about mid-October then I'll see a pile of bucks showing up - mostly at night.  I'm on the fringe of a side tributary for a bigger watershed.  It seems like the does have claimed it as their turf about 90% of the year but during the rut their boyfriends will make a trip out here to investigate but generally in the middle of the night (at least the mature ones).  The place I bowhunt is less than a mile from here as the crow flies, but more in the core travel corridor for the bigger bucks.  It's been interesting over the years observing what their routines are, think I've finally got a picture in my head of the route those guys are traveling during the rut - would be cool to have a GPS collar on one to see if I'm right.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Those plots look nice and the eight pointer certainly has potential.  Glad you finally got the much needed rain.  My deer tend to like the brassicas before the frost also.  Keep the pictures coming!

The food plot looks great. Good to see your kids enjoying it, the 8pt does have potential!!
