Default Food plots this spring...

Anyone doing any? I must redo mine. I put one in the fall. It was doing good in the start but then a dry spell hammered it. What everyone planting? Im thinking of putting Antler Kings Honey Hole in.

I'll have to check with Julie's bus driver (where I do most of my hunting) and see if she will let me put something in.

We have a good stand of Imperial Whitetail right now (yes, it gets heavy use) and a smaller plot of Alfa-Rack. We are going to add some roundup ready corn and beans to leave standing and another plot of maybe alfalfa. The low lying ground is going into switchgrass.

I forgot about the switch grass. Thats something else I want to plant. The deer just love that stuff to lay in.

I may be wrong, but Biologic might be mostly brassicas (turnips, mustard greens, etc.). At least that's what the leaves look like whenever I'm watching a show where they talk about the deer being in the Biologic plot. the thing I've heard about brassicas is they don't do well until they get frosted pretty good, and the frost helps the starch in them turn to sugar. Once that happens, the deer seem to come to it better, from what I've seen on shows.

Rick and I planted the Antler King fall/winter/spring blend but we got it in too late this year, it did come up but didn't have enough time to reach maturity. I think we are going to try a couple different AK blends this year and see what works the best for us

If I had a private patch, I'd be putting in as many as I could.
