    The Food Plot Chronicles

    We have several quality plots going among the members here and several of us have shared those experiences in various threads. It is nice to condense information regarding popular subjects, so I decided to start this thread as a common place for us to share our annual food plotting ventures...

    Well I bit the bullet and bought a new house..... Nice little 11 acre mini farm. The deer and pheasants are thick on the property already.

    Stone Celt Found in Food Plot

    I deep plowed 3-4 acres Monday in preparation for fall food plot plantings. Then we had heavy rains Tuesday and Wednesday so i thought I go take a look around for arrow heads. I wasn't in the field for 2 minutes when I saw a rounded end of a granite looking stone sticks half way out the dirt. I...

    Food and Bedding Plots Are In

    This is the Old Saw food plot location. It's a small field tucked back in a corner behind a bigger agricultural field, not sure what they are planting there yet. The field is separated from that big field with a thin strip of brush and trees, very secluded. Here we planted Whitetail Select...

    Sandridge Outfitters 2013 Food Plot Plan

    The more I think about what to do, the more indecisive I get! Figured I would throw some information at you all and see what you guys would do in my shoes. I have never planted perennials before, but am considering it this year. I have never planted in the spring, but would like to plant one or...

    PERFECT Timing!

    This was the first September 1st in many years that I didn't get out to shoot either doves, geese, or teal. It was tough to hear of my brother's group shooting 3 limits of doves in just under 2 hours, or of Jake whacking 4 limits of geese by 7:30... I mean, that's just fuggin lights-out action...

    Mowing before spraying???

    I'm hoping to head south this weekend and get some food plot prepping started. I have one spot (~1/2 acre) that's been a plot for 3 years, but I have two more spots in mind that have never been planted. These new spots are usually waist-high grass with a carpet of poison ivy underneath, this...

    Holy Smartweed!

    I drove out to a property this morning to investigate a mosquito related complaint, anticipating a stagnant mosquito-infested mudhole. When I got there the swamp was damp, but mostly dried up. But what came up from the ground was this glorious sea of green! All of you guys that duck hunt...

    New Fall Plot Step-by-Step

    I got started on my new fall plot project this weekend. We are putting in a new plot, about a half an acre, in part of an old, secluded field. The field is surrounded by a giant thicket and there is one good tree on the east side of the plot I can get a stand into, which set us up perfectly...

    Poor mans food plot

    I'm sure I am not the only guy on this forum to face a bit of a snag in developing a food plot. I dont own any land, and the landowners who graciously allow me to hunt arent going to let me till up part of their feild to plant forage for the deer. Compound this with VERY limited budget that...

    How to select best location for a food plot?

    Just curious what some of you guys feel is the best placement for a food plot? Obviously, different areas of the state will have plots with different needs. In areas devoid of agriculture, I am not sure it would matter a lot. I don't know. I live in agriculture country. The Drury brothers...

    Food plot plant knowledge thread

    Food plots are definitely becoming more popular every year. I am far from an expert, but have dabbled with them for 3 years now. Maybe I should say, this will be my third season planting them. With this topic becoming more popular, I thought a thread specifically for plants used would be a...
