We get snow early up in N. Wisconsin as it is only 20 miles south of Lake Superior. Considered the snow belt so usually get a snow in October, and heavy by November 20 or so. By over seeding do you mean plant rye with the Brassica's? I thought about putting some other early season attractor as a strip along the edge of the brassica plot for an early season attractant. I will mainly hunt this plot with a rifle and then muzzle loader in November then December. Snow is almost a given by then and deep snow at that.
I also will have a "secret spot" plot about 75 yds away from this "big" (1/3a) brassica spot, so my stand will be positioned between these two plots. I Prepped and plowed two existing skidder trails from a cut done a few years back to form these two plots. That is why they are so close to eachother. Brassica plot is about 150yds from a known cedar thicket bedding area so I hope they move through the smaller plot, past my stand and to the brassica. Smaller rye plot right next to the beds.
I will lime it all eventually but I ran out of money for this year. So, hopefully next year. I figured secret spot with rye and wheat would do decent for now. $2500 investment total with a land evaluation to select sites and plants and then the blade work and tiller work. Quite a process. I was amazed at the amount of work they did in a day. The plots are l a beautiful bed of perfectly prepared soil. Something out of a magazine. I am going to try and get up there this weekend to spray if needed, one more time, move treestands and trim a bit and then return in a few weeks to plant. Chomping at the bit. Thanks for the reply.
