Summer food plots planted during gobbler season. Combination of buckwheat, forage soybeans, and summer peas.

Thanks, after years of planting food plots maybe I'll finally get a deer in a few years.

Hey gobbler, can you come up and do some plots on my place! They look great.

I don't know if it's legal to drive a tractor up the Turnpike.

You are probably correct, but I bet your tractor looks better than some of the vehicles I have seen on the highway! ( some of which I was driving)!

Buckwheat is about 2.5 ft tall now and is blooming. The soybeans and peas are about a foot tall.

Saw a bunch of fawns this past week. They must really be dropping them now. Everyone I saw was a single fawn. Didn't see any twins.

Was at the farm for 5 days and never saw any turkeys. Is anybody seeing any poults?

Buckwheat is seeding up. The turkeys and doves will hit the seeds soon.

The soybeans and peas are starting to come on good now. they will provide high protein feed for the next 2 months.

one of my 7 clover fields. They are now 4 years old and weeds and grass are starting to take over. I've cut them once already this year and getting ready to do it again. Despite routine cutting and spraying I can only get about 4 years out of a field before I have to kill and replant. I'm thinking about switching over to alfalfa this time.

gobbler food plots look good. what the secret? I am trying food plots this year for the first time. Do I need to water them alot? How do I need to plant and what works the best?

From: gobbler ........ No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual No Violations Reported on this individual ....... Date: 02-Jul-10


They do need water at the right time. First you need to check and correct the PH before anything else. WVU will soil tests for you thru the county extension agency. They will tell you the PH and how much lime you need. If you let them know what you are planning on planting the will give a recommendation on fertilizer.

I've been real happy with buckwheat for summer plots. Plant the first of may and cut down the end of August. Then replant with buck forage oats and/or winter wheat for the fall.

I usually plant Imperial whitetail clover along with winter wheat or rye (not ryegrass) in the fall. the wheat/rye acts as a cover for the clover during the fall, then the next spring I cut the wheat/rye down after the clover has taken off. I get about 4 years out of each clover planting. I fertilize the clover late winter with a low nitrgen high phosphate and high potassium fertilizer. I usually use a 10/20/20 on the buckwheat and a 19/19/19 on the oats and wheat.

this is the first year I mixed the forage soybeans and summer peas with the buckwheat and I'm very pleased so far.

To plant I cut everything down then as they are just starting to green up, spray with glyphosate and wait till it dies. best to wait 5-7 days, Then I fertilize then till the ground. Then broadcast the seeds and use a cultipacker to get good seed dirt contact then pray for rain. I usually try and watch the forcast and plant 1-2 days before a good rain is forcast.

Most buckwheat gone to seed and soybeans, peas, and sunflowers doing well after the recent rains.

recently dropped buckwheat seeds sprouted and will give the deer tender high protein feed in the middle of summer.

deer trails from the woods going into food plots.

Gobbler, your food plots look fantastic. I am very impressed. We have a QDMA chapter up here in Parkersburg (Mountain State QDMA) and we're having a food plot field day on August 14th. We're going to have a handful of guest speakers as well as have a live demo on planting a food plot. We're gonna plant a 1 acre food plot. From the look of your food plots, you could put on the entire seminar. I know it would be a long drive, but we would love to have you join us. Heck, we could probably give you the official title of "Food Plot Technical Advisor." LOL

See gobbler? U got to watch what you know

Too short of notice, I'm already scheduled to work that day. But next year If you have it I'd be willing to help any way I could.

Man, looks great. I have a great place to put in about 20-30 acres on top of Muddy Creek Mtn. but I can not afford it. Between the lime and seed, how much would you estimate you have into this?
