  1. I second this. Even the bear I shot didn't go 20 yards.
  2. Last thing on Wheeler about 8 years ago Ben Cherington's father in law who was a white sox scout told me Wheeler had all the tools to be a big star but anyone who watched him could see that his arm would be a problem long term. Long story (kinda long) he was right in every category that he spoke about when it came to young pitchers (not just wheeler). His daughter Mrs. Cherington also ran the Hudson Valley Renegades at that time and I had a chance to take a amateur scouting job that paid zip. I passed on the job but always remember what he told me about Wheeler.
  3. Jarred Kelenic is a beast. Dad is a coach he is a true five tool guy that was sold off after being a first round pick. Cano's comments on Diaz before he ever put on a mets uniform were telling. Once again I want to cheer for my team but there are major pieces that seem to be in the wrong place. I watch a ton of minor league ball and follow the mlb draft in depth, Kelenic seems like the real deal.
  4. Kill the grass off. For me that was the answer instead of planting one crop. If your planting in 5h that's where i do my plots and how i have had luck.
  5. Wheeler at almost 24 mill a year is just too much. Big talent but big injury history with an arm angle that is begging for another injury. Mets will miss him but no thanks at 5 years for 24 mill. He was all class and I wish him the best. That said the Mets are trying to dump Familia and Lawrie apparently for salary relief. Ok cool but what will they do with that relief? Mets aren't close at the moment and the lack of talent in the minors will be exposed in the coming years. It's not a fun time to be a Mets fan.
  6. This is Powerplant from WTI. They don't produce pods but create an immense amount of late summer early fall forage. The year I planted Powerplant my deer numbers on camera doubled. Im in a low deer density area so this plot made it until frost killed it off. I top seeded radishes about six weeks after I seeded the Powerplant and it came out great. Forage wise that's been the best combination I've had in four years of doing food plots. The beans hid the brassicas and allowed them to survive deer browsing much longer then any other brassicas I've planted.
  7. I think it all depends on when you do your bulk of hunting, when do the deer need the food source most, when will the deer be attracted to the food plot you put in. If you are more into bow go with clover, the attraction of a good clover in fall is great and it will save you time and effort if you frost seed. Mix in some wheat or rye as a later season source and you have an easy to plot green manure field that you can flip in a couple years into beans, corn or brassicas. As Moog said the clover will put nitrogen into the soil and the rye or wheat would suppress weeds and add a food source even if it snows. If the soil is crappy radishes have worked awesome for me. Btw all my plots have been done with an atv tow behind tiller and it takes a bit of time but it has worked for me.
  8. Close doesn't count in hunting. Should be able to get out tomorrow for one last shot on state land in 3m.
  9. How beautiful! Only squirmed away for a couple hours and saw nothing, not even a track but I had state land to myself again which seems to be more and more common as the years go by.
  10. How are the breakfast links? Either that or pastrami venison for me can't decide.
  11. Wish I could get out tomorrow, good luck to anyone headed out.
  12. Dad got his first buck in years. He hunts to spend time with me and had only a couple days at camp after coming up from Florida. Gave him my climber and put him in a spot I like, he shot this four point at about eight a.m., was our last hunt of the year together so I couldn't be more happy. Second buck at camp this year between he and I. I still have my buck tag so I might sneak out to state land the next couple mornings in 3m looking for Mr. Big who keeps making all the rubs I've found.
  13. Can't recall seeing a state land deer this size in the area I'm hunting.
