Started working on this plot over 2 months ago.  Mowed, then sprayed with glyphosate and 24d.  Burned off as much of it as I could about 10 days after spraying.   Burned off the majority of the dead clipped grass

Disced it, then came back and tilled it.

About 4 weeks ago limed it with 330 lbs of pelleted, then ran the tiller across at medium depth just before a rain a couple weeks ago.  Had about 70 lbs of lime that spread at planting, due to the spreader breaking.  Last weekend dragged it off with my little tractor and then spread 100 lbs pennington wintergrazer rye grain with the tow behind.  Spread 200 lbs 6-12-12 fertilizer after putting out the rye, helped roll in the rye.  Bed was pretty firm by then, spread 10 lbs rackmaster clover trio with a walk behind spreader.  Sprinkled on and off as I was walking with the spreader, and had a good slow soaker come on less than 30 minutes after getting back to the house.

That looks like a nice plot!! Is the clover a perennial you planted with, I'm guessing, oats? I'm already thinking about food plots for next spring!

Yes Ruth the clover is a perennial, went with pennington clover trio.  The grain is winter grazer rye grain also from pennington.  So that plot should be there for up to 5 years. 

I will hopefully be planting more hoosier pride soybeans this summer here, will depend on whether or not rural king will have them again.

Not sure that buck got the plot on his mind...lol

Saw that one a number of times, he kept his distance from the does when the old busted up buck was around.  He was probably a little late for the action on that group.

Yeah, we try to let the does be live bait for the bucks.  Pays off sometimes.
