Thumbs up Getting the "jump" on the weeds in my food plots!!

I was down in Hancock last weekend and I got the 'ol hand sprayer out and walked both of my food plots.......The main culprit in my plots is the "THISTLE"!!!!!!!!! Man, that stuff sucks!!!!!!

Over the past few years I spray 'em 2 or 3 times with the hand sprayer and then about a month prior to planting we spray the plots completely with the big sprayer.........It has helped tremendously!!!!!!!!

The key is to get 'em before they bloom!!!!!!!!
