im in nw wi and have two plots, one is 1 and a third and the other is 1/8 acre of clover/chic. the big one is three bulbs strategicly styled into a north bulb of 1/2 acre clover/chic and then pinches into a 1/2 acre south bulb which rolls into a east 1/3 acre piece. the s. and e. parts are swapped turnips and winter oats every season, but was thinking about trying to divide it into 1/3s of oats turnips and corn. big woods where im at and was wonderin what others have had when they tried this. i feel it might work because the deer have the variety and as long as the oats are still green they pound em.
the herd size is well managed enough so i think the corn will get past the milking stage, the reason i wanna plant it is because i have a neighbor down the road closer to the winter bedding that gives them corn in his driveway every day once snow flies and then they dont make it to my plots till late at nite. i know that aint probably gonna make deer skip his closer dish, that aint how deer work, but was thinking it might surprise me too, never know!
i was thinking of planting the left over feed bag corn ive got after coon trappin, but wanted to hear some experiences planting corn where there aint none much around. there is a single field almost a mile north 80 acres and the deer definitely hit it cuz they always got corn in their paunch when i kill and check it. guessin they eat it there. thank you in advance.
only if we had antler point restrictions...
try not to become a man of success, but a man of value.
