New Plot

I decided the reason why my plots never make it is because they are too small! I now have a place of my own, so I am making a big plot...about 6 acres! Hopefully the deer won't dessimate it all before it gets past the dicot stage like they always have with my small plots. I think I will plant rye/winter peas after I get it ready. I have just run over it once with the disc, and need to get some soil samples to check what it needs. Running out of time, but I think it will still be productive for the season. This is mostly in an effort to build the soil for planting grass in the spring. This plot will end up being my front yard after we get the house built.

Yeah, it is! Unfortunately it's not mine though. I'm having that guy take out some trees and level up a spot to build a house on. I bought this 200 acres that is one of my old hunting spots. Hopefully will start on the house in the spring. In the meantime, I will plant the area in the first pic for my food plot.

I'm looking forward to finally getting to manage this property for deer and turkey hunting. It has always had good potential, but over run with cattle. Now that they are gone i should be able to make some good progress.

Thanks guys. I spent the weekend out there again just cleaning up some stuff. It seems like it takes a lot longer to trim up trees vs. just taking them out. I am beginning to hate stacking brush. the dozer guy is done with the major part of the leveling, he just needs to smooth it out with the grader. I will be back out there later this week and hopefully get some more pics.

Just something to think about
I let a lot of my back food plot ground grow up with 3 to 4 ft grass for a good dry bedding area this year it looks promising
and planted more plots up on the high ground to see if i can get more traveling out of the deer

There is a 120 acre "sanctuary" situated just south of where this plot is located. It is scattered brush and cedar trees in big bluestem grass. The deer love it in there, and it is nearly impossible to hunt. That area has been untouched for 7-8 years now. I have seen a lot of deer tracks coming out of there to check out the fresh plowed field.
