Our Frigid Forage late season plot is really
starting to take off.
After below average rainfall in July, August has provided near-perfect weather for
growing wildlife food. The Big-N-Beasty Brassica mix is growing nearly 1/2 inch a
day right now. Plus, the chicory and clover on our larger destination plots are already
being utilized heavily by deer.
A bachelor group of bucks is hitting the chicory every night now and posing for our
trail cameras. Two of the bucks are 8-point 2-year-olds and one is a tall-tined 8-point
3-year old. The group also contains several yearlings.
