Jim,
I did the job in exchange for the timber.

The neighbor has been so impressed with the results of the food plot I made for him he wants another. He asked for my advise as to what variety of crop and the proper location for said plot.

The first is a perennial that will last about five years or so with proper maintenance, the winter greens is a turnip/brassica variety and is an annual. Both have very high protein which will serve the local animals very well.

I have video of deer,turkeys,porcupine,ground hogs,coyotes,fisher cats and a bobcat all using this food plot. The coyotes,fisher cat and bobcat are actually hunting the small game using this food source.



Winter Greens is the only choice and this is what I came up with for location. And again I will utilize the timber to heat my home.

That's a great job and a lot of work. Where did you get the teeth for the bucket? I could use something like that clearing out my next plot.

I also love camping Jim, I've done it all my life. You should retrieve your camping stuff.

It's called "Ratchet Rake" and I bought it at tractor supply.

Progress on the winter greens food plot.

All trees have been cleared by me, and the neighbor stumped it and removed dozens of huge boulders. It's ready for me to work next spring. If you look all around the perimeter you will see all the boulders.

Can't wait to get started!

Chuck,
There are two big bucks, an eleven pointer and an eight. Also many smaller bucks and a boat load of does and fawns. If one of those big bucks makes a mistake I'll gladly take one, but in all honesty I am a meat hunter. I love free ranging venison,and have been eating it for 25 years now, can't wait for the season to start!

Here's the result of the new food plot I installed this past summer. It's an annual brassica and the deer love it.

Image

You can see where they have been eating it.

And our next food plot for 2015, I may have to quit my day job to take care of them all.

I also traded in my tractor for a much larger one, what a difference!
