It is expensive if you total the cost of seed, fertilizer, lime, diesel, tractor maintenance, etc. Fertilizer is the most expensive part of food plotting....unless you factor in your time. You gotta love doing it. I have to throw my $$ away on something. Just as well pour it out on the ground and go back in a few days and look at all the deer and turkey tracks walking thru it...lol

Lol ... I appreciate men like you ... especially if y’all are next to public land... I put a few dollars into this set up , but man it feels like freedom to throw it on your back and find where the deer are... I just hope my body holds out to keep doing it for another 20 years..

Had this property for 20 years....400 acres. Have been 70 plus total deer killed since 2000. We havent shot a buck less than 3.5 years old in about 15 years. There are usually several "shooter" bucks that use the property as part of their fall/rut range. We usually only take 1 or 2 of these bucks annually. Have been seasons where no bucks were killed. Usually look at several dozen bucks thru binos or scope that the neighbors would shoot in a minute. Sometimes they do, but most survive, based on trail cam pics.

My neighbors plant plots and selective buck harvest too....mostly. Sometimes we allow kids and other neophytes take what they want. If i bordered public land i would not put in the same effort. I hunt some public land but not often.

That a Lone Wolf? Those hang-ons and sticks are rough on an older guy.

Nice looking plots. I’m with you it’s a labor of love and a way of giving something back. Food plots are my way of pressing the reset button as well. I had to laugh about the squirrel in the chufa. I had the same thing happen, I pulled up at my chufa plot and 4 squirrels scattered for cover. My buddy looked at me and replied “food plot for squirrels?” I never thought of trying an owl.

Nice plots. The squirrels got my chufas too, but there are 7 that went to bushytail heaven.

Those plots are impressive. I am looking forward to getting a tractor small enough to cary on with my 3 small plots I have mostly cleared so far with a mulching blade on a weed eater and a chain saw. But the next tractor will have a front loader and a brush hog on it to play with. .

Wheels man!...wheels! Deer cart or a duck decoy sled works pretty good.

Dont waste your $$ on the owl. It might work with movable "wing" blowing in the wind. Didnt try that n4 they ate em all up with the help of coons.

Our partridge pea is getting hammered right now. But, I’m in SWGA where there’s agriculture and pine plantations. I think Swamp Wolf is in SEGA...and entirely different eco system.

I see lots of hard work and some great looking results.

Give your deer some "eat more squirrel" signs LOL

The Firmator im using is a loaner from a friend. Its the 48" ATV or tractor model. It has 9" cultipacker wheels which are too small for my sandy soils....pulls sand instead of rolling over it sometimes. And if the cultipacker ain't rolling the seed distributor stops. Works OK here if soil is moist or the few places where i have heavier soil.

The bigger model has 16" cultipacker wheels that work well in sandy soils. My tractor doesn't have enough arse to pull that model.

Red Ripper peas. Been getting rains daily with low pressure system that was hanging over us past few days. Can grow plots on the sand ridges when rains come regularly.
