  1. This was planted 9/7/19. I've frost seeded the last two years only in spots I knew were a bit thin or being over taken by weeds. The two worst offenders are the water pepper and curly docks.
  2. Just needed to share this. It's in the 3rd year of growth and the amount of clover is crazy. I've lime and fertilized every year according to soil sample testing. This year I used Imox Herbicide - 12.1% Imazamox to help control grass and broadleaf. First time using it and I was pleasantly surprised. You could actually see after a few weeks where I didn't properly overlap my spraying. Haven't touched it with a mower and likely won't until August. Looks like it's going to seed. Zoom in on the photo to see how much clover in flower there is. I'm amazed. It's WI Imperial Clover.
  3. Get a 25 gallon Fimco from Tractor Supply.
  4. How are you getting Slay in NY? WI won't sell to a NY resident. I'd like to use it on my Vision and Fusion plots. They are going into their third year and I've only used Arrest and mowed during the lifetime thus far. I've got issues with smart weed and some other broadleaf weeds.
  5. I had them last in last year. The deer hit them once the ground froze and pushed the bulbs up. The weather we've had thus far might explain why the deer aren't into eating them.
  6. Got these for the 4runner. Paid under $450 for 4. https://nankangusa.com/light-truck-tires/at-5-conqueror-at/ So far so good. Not noisy and no issue climbing a muddy hill up to a hunting spot, albeit in 4WD. Got tired of paying a premium price for Goodyear and not getting nearly enough life out of them.
  7. A little shooter plot I created from a patch of hay scented ferns. It's got WI No-Plow in it. It's about 150 yards in from a larger field. Large tree in the middle is 40 yards. Mock scrape off to the right and several trails in and out of it.
  8. Would love to know a bit more about this. Do you have a square cut out behind the cardboard to prolong the life of the deer?
  9. Mock scrap shots. This has been up for almost 2 years. Stop by, kick the dirt, take a piss and check the camera.
  10. Got to do a soil test. Most important with weed control being next. Lack of rain is really hampering everything. I put in about 2 acres of brassicas on 8/1. Saw a bit of rain after planting but then nothing since Labor Day. Not a great year like other guys have said.
  11. I've got two set up in the butchering barn. They work great for the money and life is much easer when your pressing the button instead of pulling on the rope.
  12. For the last five years I've been the caretaker on a roughly 700 acres. It's located in a antler restricted section of the state and DMP are very tough to come by. It's 75% hardwoods that have been managed for over 30 years. Within the last two years I've worked to add about 12 acres of food plots with 8 or those acres being perennial clovers/chicory. The other 4 I've rotated oats, brassicas and peas and beans. I've been learning on the fly and that includes reading and absorbing as much QDMA articles and information that I can. These forums have been a big help as well. The property ha
  13. Put these in this weekend. They each look over food plots. I enjoy sitting in them when the weather is wet. Swivel chair and a nice seat pad will do you just right.
  14. I hunt private land and only wear an orange beanie.
