The Journey

So many people measure success the the end goal. Whether it be harvesting that trophy buck or a mature doe, the harvest means finality. To others, they look at food plots as success if they hold deer on their property by providing 365 day nutrition. For myself, it is not about the end of the journey but the holistic benefits of doing better. For myself, food plotting and deer nutrition is a 365 day a year process. We want to take soil samples at the end of the season. If we need lime, we get it down ideallly from November thru March. We want to always frost seed new plots in February or March and overseed existing plots during that time frame. An outstanding time to scout is during shed hunt

Take Half, Leave Half

Take half, leave half. In the grazing community there has been an old saying, "take half, leave half. Here is why it's important for people with perennial clover/legume plots. Look at the chart and see what happens to plant regrowth as you clip lower to the ground. Another consideration is if you clip low and late, you are leaving a lot of plant residue on the ground which can shade or kill off subsequent regrowth. For those of you who are not as familiar with managed intensive grazing, this is my expertise and It's the concepts i am bringing to the wildlife industry and a focus of my next book. It also is the focus of my 2017 research that I'll continually share with you, the public.
