I will be putting in a perennial seed blend this spring on a skidder road where the soil has been worked up nicely. The seed mix consists of alfalfa, birdsfoot trefoil, chicory, alsike clover, red clover, white clover and brassicas. Pics to follow. The product is by Rack Stacker - SuperBuck foodplot.

- added a bag of lime pellets to the soil.

Looks like you must have did a fair bit of work after the logging operation was done. Don't think you have to worry about having enough moisture in a poplar and black ash (or is it red maple) stand.

Actually the logger equipment did all the soil turn over, as they got caught in a thaw taking out the logs. I just did a bit of raking Very Happy . There is a pine plantation next to this section.

Perfect!!! Food, cover and water (beaver pond in background). It should be a honey hole come fall. Good luck.

Lots of material laying around to build a nice natural ground blind. You just need to pick out a spot once your food plot is in.

4ST, that does look like a beaver pond in that photo because of white out but it's actually a grass field. I do have a tree picked out to hang a stand. I will put up a pick to show you guys.

Now if it gets a chance to grow it should produce well.

Fertilized the plot today with triple 16.
Set up a my old D50 Moultrie cam as well. It's powered by a Mazda Miata car battery which are small and handy enough to bring in. I've got fresh deer tracks in the plot each week . The rainy weather continues .

You will notice that it's not growing too well in middle section of the road there. Not enough light.

Yes, I had the same problem when I attemted to plant in the hard woods here, by Aug the canopy was so thick the plot was getting almost zero light and never amounted to much.

looking good, if that keeps up, you should see a lot of activity come fall, I hope you see a nice buck and then connect for the take down.

Thanks, the plot is looking better all the time. Now if I can just get a third trail cam to work for me so we can see what's walking around in there.

Tracer,
Food plot is looking great. I am suprised that the deer haven't hammered it already. Why do you think that is? Have you hired some teenagers to go spook them once every hour until deer season? lol. Where are the trail camera pics from the deer feeding there?

Tracer,
Here is an amateur food plot a hunter made in Maine. You might have to scroll up to see it. I think it brings you to the last post. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] It looks like similar browse to yours.

That's a nice plot, thanks for the link. Yes, some of the same plants( brassica's, clover) and it's getting lots of light. Not bad for bargain bin seed. The deer will pick at the clover through the summer but will leave the rest of the plants alone until fall.

Looks like it is coming along really nice. The deer seem to think so also.

Looking good, too bad the rack is not showing a little more.
