I’ve only planted a food plot in one area that was dominated by sericea. I did Throw and Mow, which means I threw seed out, sprayed glyphosate, then mowed the sericea down to cover the seed. It did pretty well. The first year, we planted a blend called 7 Card Stud.
Sericea was farm gate high...
We’re not “totally” unpressured, but we try our best.
Last year I watched a buck locked down with a doe on November 14th, then a different buck locked down with a doe on the 15th. They were all right outside our yard. They stayed in sight for a few hours, moving maybe a hundred yards combined...
I’m not far from you, in Hardin County. We had good movement during daylight yesterday, both morning and evening. We have 2 or 3 potential shooters, several small bucks, and millions of does. I expect it to get a little better the next few days.
For what it’s worth, I can relate.
I’ve played around with a bee smoker enough to know there’s no “downwind” in our woods.
What has kinda worked for us is treating most of our woods as a sanctuary, and planting food plots on the edge of the woods. The wind is a little more reliable where the...
Strut ‘N’ Buck, KDFWR would love your place. I’m guessing they will suggest establishing Native Warm Season Grasses on a lot of it, especially if it’s currently fescue pasture.
Anyway, here’s something I drew up.
Ezelkyhunter, I’ve been pretty much obsessed with deer beds and bedding areas since I saw how well it works. Our sightings are up like a million percent compared to before.
Whenever I find deer hair in a new bed I’ve made, I tell my wife and kids, “Guys, this is the happiest day of my life!”...
We’re getting more corn pics at night, but still quite a few daytime pictures.
For a while, they were hitting our food plots more than corn, but that’s changed in the last week or so.
Our corn that’s getting the most action is in the woods, and I think they’re feeding on acorns, getting a bite...
After reading this thread, I went over our food plots with a fine tooth comb, and saw something I’ve never noticed before.
Something is eating horse nettle like it’s going out of style, but there was almost no damage to the brassicas, or anything else, that was in the blend we planted...
Yeah, it was this Josh Bowmar video that my son first asked me to watch about Sevr’s.
He starts talking about them at around 12:20.
Something kinda cool about them, they have a place for a set screw that keeps the blades from opening, so you can practice with them, then just take the screw out...
My son also just switched to Sevr this year.
Same as @xbokilla ’s buddy, he’s getting great flight with them, but hasn’t hunted with them yet.
We've watched several videos on YouTube, and they always hold up well, shooting through car hoods and stuff.
I’m going to go out on a limb, and say that...
JD, I’m sorry for your loss.
I test drove a truck the other day, and for whatever reason it reminded me of you posting about the gas mileage your truck got, which got me to thinking that you hadn’t been on here for a while.
It’s good to see you.
Enjoy your hunt tomorrow.
