Default Ground was perfect this evening

for putting in the plot behind the house. The 4 wheeler with the King Cutter does a good job

Kevin, I bought some of that Pennington feeding frenzy for my little plot! It is at lowes and at walmart(were the fish used to be). 25lbs for 33 bucks. It is high, but has a lot of good stuff in it!Corey has some at the river and it looks good!! We can't seem to get ours in the ground. it will be monday though!!

I had Durana clover planted in it back in 2005. I got 4 years out of it before a drought finally got it! I think Im gonna go that route again and just add some wheat in with it to keep the grazing pressure down on the durana until it gets established. In the summer that clover was 2ft tall and bucks were bedding and eating in there all of August that year and most of Sept.

No, rape is an annual that can really draw the deer after a frost, but will not last into spring. Chicory is a perennial (can last 3-5 years ) that is very drought tolerant, high in protein and would be a great seed to add to your durana.

First frost brings sugars into the rape and makes it much more palatable to deer.
