the baiting issue in NY is a pain in the rear.the DEC outlawed feeding of wildlife just recently.thats all wildlife.bird feeders too.the storry i got is too many racoons and bears takig advantage of the free food.the birds dont migrate if ya feed em and drop dead if ya stop.the deer arent part of the equation.Before they stopped feeding of wildlife it was legal to feed the animals but not deer for the fear of CWD.I knew guys that would spend 1000$ on cracked corn and hunt near feeders.not for me but if its legal go for it.So now you got guys feeding the deer big time trying to "hold "the deer on thier property. it started all kinds of trouble..Afterall how dare i shoot your deer.personally im glad the law is in place it makes it "fair"alll around.also the dec said the deer corn was bad for the deer.I dont by that cuz deer in those cornbelt areas grow mighty fine

The people coming out of the burger joints grow mighty fine too, but that don't make them healthy


Just kidding, I have no idea about what's a balanced diet for them. I would guess that they must have a balance and not just too much of one thing, but I'm no expert.

Hey I'm back. This is a subject near to my heart. Baiting has one major draw back, spreading TB and possibly other diseases. Also, you have to watch for molds as some bait sources will mold up after rain and warm weather hits them. As far as food plots I have not read where the transfer of saliva is as much as a concern. Food plots with up to 30-38 % proteen will help a under-nutritional heard. Hunting over your food plots/bait is a personal matter, and state issue, I choose not to.

Has anyone started putting in their food plots and what did you plant?This would have been a good spring to plant with the cool weather.

I haven't heard of that product. With the upcoming surgery I'm going to try a late season planting of something. I will have plenty of time to think about what to try. I think I can do a early September planting this should allow the plants a good start.

Its a mix of a couple clovers, rape, rye, oats, millet, turnips, cow peas, dwarf corn, and sunflower, those are just the ones I remember. Its says it only needs 3 to 4 hrs of sun. so with that mix bag of stuff it should be good from early to late. I think it was like $30 for 12lbs. kinda pricey but if it grows and is good for all critters, and covers spring through fall it may be worth it. I think it said 50lbs per acre spread rate. cost wise how does that compare to the stuff you normally use keeping in mind the early and late parts of the mix?

Excluding fertlizer and lime I usually figure 100-130 per acre for seed. So your blend is right in line with that. Ronn is that product a spring plant only and where did you see it advertised? Thanks. I try to plant a mix of clover/chichory/brassicas. I would like to try power plant from whitetail institute its high price and a spring plant so not this year. I'm probably missing the best planting year but things sometimes get in the way.

Thanks thats good to know that it is in line cost wise. I was looking for a local store that carries Thro-Grow and checked on line. There was a site that said throw and grow and I checked it out. The co. is Natures Own and the product is called throw and grow mixture. whitetailhabitat.com is the web site. This is a list of dealers that are closest to me but might be in your neighborhood. On the bucket it says plant in the spring or late season dormant planting. It also says fertilizing is better than not, duh.
