    Today is the day

    I will be heading to my stand in a few minutes. My wife is so busy I don't want to get in her way. She got her deer a couple weeks ago. Set the bar a little high for me. I'll start recording the race but I'll be back before it's over so I will watch the ending live. Unless of course I drop the big boy I've been waiting for. Then I'll have to watch later. Enjoy the race Cinderella. Lynn

    I have to agree 1/2 acre is not enough unless other green crops are planted closely by. Last year I leased my land out for a farmer to grow soy beans on. This was the most productive my land has ever been for deer and good hunting. The farmer I leased my land to went out of business so I leased my land this year for another farm owner to grow corn. Deer sightings are down this year in my fields. They picked up right after the corn was picked the weekend before rifle season began. Now the corn lost from the combine is eaten up and sightings are back down now. Knowing I wasn't going to benefit from the beans this year I planted 1/2 acre of beans. They sprouted well but a week later there wasn't a bean plant showing in my plot. They virtually disappeared over night. There were two fields planted with soy beans less than a mile from my fields. Probably a total of 80 acres. The deer were in there all summer and fall long munching away. Must be the deer liked mine and headed out looking for more. In your case I'd plant Brassicas, Rape and Kale hoping for the deer to find them after a deep frost when the turnip leaves turn the starch to sugar and attract deer. Trying to compete with large crop fields with small food plots is a real challenge. Clover is good in some cases but with farm fields covered with hay it might not be your best bet either. This depends upon what the quality of the hay actually is too. Only by trying it will you know. If you had the option of using a couple more acres for your plots it would be helpful but that is up to the owner and you to discuss. Good luck and keep us posted. Lynn

    Hey guys, nothing yet. I'm headed back to camp Monday to hunt Monday afternoon Tuesday and Wednesday. Then that will be it for me for this season. Our lobster season opens Nov 26 so I'll be getting all ready for that the end of next week. I have a beautiful huge 8 pointer on my cam so I'm hoping and praying that he shows himself this time. Its giving snow for Tuesday and the rut should be in full tilt so I,m hoping he gets stupid chasing does .

    We got 6-8 inches of snow here in eastern Ontario last night and today. Was at work for 6:30 this morning to get the yard cleaned up before opening time. Have tomorrow and Sunday left of rifle hunting. Looks like the weather is going to be perfect. My daughter has been asking me since I picked her up from daycare if we can go on the "Doo-doo" (snowmobile) so I imagine we will be breaking some trails tomorrow and doing some riding this weekend.

    Playing catch up at home now after being gone so much in Missouri since 10/25. Gun season opens here in MS tomorrow. I might go to the MS club tomorrow and run my trail cams and move some.

    Depending on your deer density and on other available food sources, that strip that is roughly a half acre may not be big enough for a bean plot. Here there is so much other ground around in crops that where I plant beans in the summer I am usually not hit by overbrowsing. Hard to say whether that would be the case there. Usually where there are fair to good deer densities you look for a minimum of an acre for a bean plot. For a clover plot you could get away with the smaller plots and that would probably be what I would lean towards for that strip. Here in west TN with weed competition clovers will do better planted in the fall than they do in the spring. I would put all of that strip in one planting and look for another spot for another plot if it were me. Also, with a fall clover planting you can add a grain for a nurse crop, I prefer wintergrazer rye grain to go with clover. The deer will hit the rye too.

    Thanks for the help, I wasn't sure if I needed more variety to be more appealing. So with about half an acre should I stick with the 60:40 ratio, also I get ddg from work for free so I can put this out all year if this would affect how much of anything i put in the food plot. Should I stick with one good plot where I will know they should be going or should I have another? I would go bigger in the one spot but that's about all the room I have. Because we have been putting out corn in the field behind the house which is about right under the wifi symbol in the picture, I could put another there if it would benefit me.

    Great 2 days in Missouri

    Thanks guys...bagging that big, wide 8 on Nov. 1st made it easier to pass this 8. If I hadn't, this one would have taken a dirt nap.
