Food Plots

What are people going to be using for their food plots? Like to hear some different types of stuff to plant. I planted suger beats last year, but I must have not planted them deep enough, because I think the turkeys picked all the seeds out.  My plot is about 1/4 acre.

Thanks!

 Discussing this with my

 

Discussing this with my brother we are looking to do a plot of alfalfa or clover... or both.  Most likely we will do both to see what the deer like best.

Yeah I thought about trying out some Rak-Atak stuff. Anyone use any of that before. This will be the first time that I use that.

They don't have a large distribution in the northern states.  Where are you buying it from and how much are you paying?

I saw the Rak-Atak on Mack's website and they were selling it for $10.99 for a 40 lbs. bag and $8.99 for a 10 lbs. bag.

  That is where I saw it too

 

That is where I saw it too - free shipping on orders over $125... but I really just wanted to try 1 bag.  No distributor is close to me.  I have about a 5 acre field that I want to test different food plots.

Yeah, well I know when ever I

Yeah, well I know when ever I get something from them the shipping usually only takes 3 days and I'm in MN, and its usually not to bad of a price? Think only like $6 for the 10lbs bag, but the 40 lbs is like $24.

Colorado?

Hey Retired2hunt, notice you are in CO too.  I could be mistaken, but according to what I understand by reading the CDOW hunting regulations, it's illegal to bait biggame here in Colorado. Unless your growing crops for a living you can't use them as food plots here, from what I understand.  Even asking a farmer to leave a certain amount of grain out on his field after harvest is illegal too. Just thought I'd throw this out there.

No, this plot is for my Dad's place in Ohio.  Thanks for checking though!
