Just an update that I was able to speak with Lance (Deerslayer) yesterday and he was very gracious with his time and information on the food plots. So I think once I can get the soil tested and a little elbow grease and some money for seed and a few other things I should be able to get some small plots up and running.

Soil samples were sent out for testing last week.

Wow! I already got my soil tests back but since I have no idea what in the they mean I have sent a copy of it to Deerslayer for him to take a look at and tell me in English what I need to do for these little plots.

James,
Your soil is in very poor shape which is common for your situation, but it's nothing that can't be fixed. With pH readings of 4.7 and 5.1 you will definitely need to put down some lime. Give me a call when you can and we can discuss the results and what options will work best for you.

Deerslayer,

Thanks for taking the time to look at the report for me. It will probably be next week before I can call.

James
