Thanks wack, I'll check that out as well. I have no equipment for food plots but would like to put in something for the deer even if I have to wait for it to dry up and take a rake out there.

Well I think I have our plans finally done...(key word is think)
 
Main Field- round up ready soybeans planted end of May and then over seeded with winter rye in August
2 logging roads- Alpha Rack Plus planted in May
Marsh edge- Durana clove planted when we can get a tractor to it
little plot leading to the field- Dwarf Essex Rape and Rye planted end of July
30 yards into field on 3 edges- Shot Plot planted end of July
 
 
 
Went and gave the tractor a tune up yesterday, cant wait for spring!

Sounds like a great plan Goose.  I'm still debating what I want to do.  Waiting for my old man to decide what he's planting this year and then I'll go off of that.  I think I really want to put in some Biomaxx though again....That stuff worked wonders last year!!!!
 
I planted some Alpha Rack plus last year....Just make sure you absolutely have the right pH and enough sunlight, especially since you're planting it on logging roads. 
 
Can't wait till spring....[:D]

I've heard that as well, one logging road is pretty open and will get enough sun for sure, the other one will be planted on the end of it and its a mature pine plantation so it should get enough filtered sun. ( I hope )

I'm gonna try to get a soil sample sent in this week, then hopefully get it limed.
It's getting closer.........

We'll probably put the beans in around Memorial day. We will be breaking ground before that though with getting new spots ready and working the lime in.
