Favorite plot?

Postby Goose » Tue Sep 30, 2008 12:38 pm

Over the years whats been your favorite plot to hunt over and why. I dont have a big variety but my most sightings have been sitting over rape and turnups. It seemed like the deer were there all fall and into winter.

So far for me its been natural browse: acorns and corn.  I would like to try one of those small plot bags called Secret Spot, or Shot Plot, anyone have experience with those products, or how abotu C'mere Deer.

I only have one clover plot and it is nutritional rather than a hunting plot. It is good for me b/c it is low maint. and has lasted for several years with no sign of dying out.

The wife and I 2 years ago  planted Secret Spot. We raked off  2 patchs of ground out in the woods where I hunt. Fertilized it early, did the whole 9 yards, waited and watched patiently for our 1st sprouts. All our efforts were wasted cause we had 4 days of heavy rains and it washed it away. We did find some clover where it washed down to. So much for that idea.
  Now I'm planting crab apple trees around.

How much for a bag?  How much planting do you have to do?

Durana clover with a chicory mix.
 
The clover seems to have a bit more vigor than the Ladino and red clovers I plant, plus the chicory is something different that the neighbors don't add.  Our deer love the chicory.

Do you have to re-seed every year with the oats, wheat, rye and rape.  If so, what do you do so as not to mess up the clover. 
 
I've tried just a light disking with an ATV disk, and while it doesn't hurt the clover, it doesn't do much for providing soil contact for the other seeds so don't get a lot of germination.

My clover has not made it thru a summer yet. For the past 3 years I have lost all my clover in August. I spray my plots with poast plus and 24db in late spring and they look great till it gets so hot and dry. This is my last year to plant clover if it does't make this year.
