Food plot attire
« on: August 28, 2018, 11:25:34 AM »
It seems now is the time for everyone to be getting their plots ready which brings me to this question: what type of clothing does everyone where while doing the field work?  We usually wear cowboy boots, jeans, long-sleeve button up shirt, cowboy hat and leather gloves.  We try to minimize getting sun burnt as that tends to make you hotter.  The sweaty shirt keeps us cool.

I go with 8 in Red Wings, long pants, hat, no sleeve shirt, gloves. I still put on some sun screen- ears, face and arms.

boots, shorts and sleeveless shirt. The ticks and chiggers are bad here but I tend to feel them climbing up a bare leg better. No ticks this time but I did get a few chiggers...

Your a brave man to wear shorts...no way I'm doing that! I wear boots, jeans, long sleeve pullover shirt, hat,  sunglasses and gloves. Spray my clothing well with permethrin the night before. No ticks, seed ticks or chiggers for me...

Same here Split Toe, do not forget the biting flies.

Also a pistol for other critters including "no shoulders".

great question. i either wear a short sleeve shirt OR i've been getting into the wicking shirts i use when fishing in high heat and a lot of bugs.

jeans, boots, gloves and lots of sunscreen

i don't want to reveal too much, but i'm looking into wicking underwear as well. after a long day working the fields, lets just say the cotton tidy whities are cutting it

i agree on the shorts. wow, your a better man than me

In this 90+ weather I'm generally in shorts and a t shirt and ball cap, with a sturdy pair of leather slip-on work shoes.  My plots are all here behind the house these days and I keep some paths mowed around everything & roundup around my implements so can generally avoid the tall weeds/ticks/chiggers/etc.  You guys that are doing huge plots and multiple plots are putting me to shame, I'll go out & work a half or three quarter acre plot in a day then go back up to the house & kick back with a beverage (yeah, I'm a slacker).  In cooler weather I'll swap out the shorts for a pair of jeans & toss on a long sleeved shirt or sweatshirt.  I typically work up the ground with disk and/or cultivator behind the tractor, then spread seed with ATV (electric spreader) then cultipack with the ATV.  If I don't have a lot of vegetation to contend with I can do a pretty nice job on a half acre plot in 2-3 hours.  Have about 3/4 acre of wheat to sow, will have to look for that the weekend after Labor Day, would like a little cooler weather & some additional moisture to make that do its thing before frost.

the great outdoors - get out there

Same for me when I do the plots behind the house.  Take my time and have even wore flip flops to do it while in shorts.  But over at our Still Club, it is 4 wheeler paths to get to our stands and plots, then "FULL" combat gear!   -00-9

Attire for food plot work is sorta' like what Puddle Jumper wears at his home plot.  Being an old man that has been in the Florida sun way too many years, I ( foolishly :2)) don't use any thing except bug spray on my hide.  No shirt, shorts and flip flops are my usual attire on the mower, tractors or cart.  I do put on a shirt if we have company coming. :)  The game cameras will tell on you. Y'all don't make fun of my fat belly, I used to be a slim trim 175 pound Marine.

Edit: there is a 9mm on my side on the mower.
