Sterting a new food plot

Unread postby hunt n nut » Tue Apr 13, 2010 1:47 am

Along with everything else we worked on this weekend, we also started grubbing out a spot for a new food plot. This spot is on a south point. There is a field in front of this plot and bedding on the end of the point and on the side of this ridge.

Its fun starting a project like this. As you can see there were some big stumps here :shock: I couldn't help but think when we were working out here, how many anti-hunters were outdoors this weekend spending a ton of money, working their butts off to "help" the animals? Anyway, can't wait to see how this turns out. We are going to try get a dozer next weekend, and finish grubbing this plot out.

lookin good you've really got access to the equipment. We're doing some smaller woods plots stErting ( :D )next weekend but using mostly hand tools, chainsaws, a brushcutters. Hoping for the chemicals to take care of new growth weeds and grass after the brush is cleared and just going to be working around the stumps for now!

Yeah, I am lucky to have a good friend to be able to operate the equipment, so I just had to pay for the machine.

If your willing to put in the work, I'm sure it will turn out for you. Good luck with your project and keep us posted ;)

Well last week we had the backhoe out on the land and started grubbing out for the food plot. This week I rented a dozer, my buddy Jon operated it, and he did an awesome job again! First we finished up the cabin/ camper landing and headed up the ridge, boy those hills in Vernon county are steep. I think Jon will vouch for that :shock:

Then we started cleaning up the plot. This hour glass shaped plot is on the south side of the property. It cleaned up really nice, next step is gonna be to get a tractor in there and start tilling it up. It sure is fun building your field of dreams :D

You got that right ;) , For this year we're gonna try soy beans, being a new plot we are hoping to do some weed control with round up-ready. I saw your thread on the biomaxx, thats too bad.

Well, this past weekend we went down and worked on the food plot. We actually got the "log cabin" skidded down there, did some compacting in the water (dirt) holes, they're not doing so good...yet, so we actually got a lot of work done.

Here are some pics.

It was a great weekend. We got a lot of work done and it seemed to make the beer go down good, sittin' around the camp fire and talkin' huntin' around the new fire pit at the new camp site :D

We planted round-up ready soy beans. Hopefully they work out good. There are a lot of roots and a fair share of rocks that were picked (and a lot yet to pick). Its a work in progress thats for sure! Now, we could sure use some rain ;)
