Yep I just put Round Up Weed Killer on most of my foodplots to knock the weeds down yesterday. Man the deer have been hitting my corn fields and been fields hard and show a lot of pressure on them. The corn is about 6/8 inches high and most every tip has been eaten off the stalk. About the time all the corn and beans come out around here, mine will be just reaching maturity and the deer should be tearing them up and be the only game in town food wise. Lol

Just planted all but one food plot yesterday. Rained last night so that is good. Have one more to go on the new property I bought last year. It stays so wet down there it is hard to get a good seed bed. Planted winter wheat and biologic. I have been
disking my plots every month or so, and disked them up and then tilled them on Monday, Limed, Planted, Straight line disked and dragged them Tuesday. Got to put out some stakes and tin pans on strings, turkey devour the seed and young blades when breaking thru the ground. Sure am glad I have a tractor, heavy disk and tiller, but think one of those small drills would be great. Eliminate a lot of work. And yea I do use a boom sprayer and kill of weeds etc a few weeks prior to the last disking.

the plot with the triticale, oats, winter peas, clover, chicory, turnips, and daikon radish has gone nuts.

Looking good. Sucks to have to haul water. we had a very wet summer so things worked out this year. mine look like a golf course with some turnips coming up in it. lol. But winter wheat always does work out well in this area. Got a few nice bucks around A big heavy 10 and a smaller 12 among others but during the rut they seem to wander all over and stay hidden. lol
