Everything should be explained in this first video but tl;dw is I am turning 3 acres of grass into food plots that attract deer for hunting purposes.

Update on the shitty grass lot, the undesirable grass was brushhogged then tilled into the soil, seeds spread on the ground then packed into it and now stands beautiful food for deer to eat.


And they do in fact come to it

What was planted after the grass was bush hogged?

Buckwheat, purple top turnips, alfalfa, several kinds of clover, some other things that I’d need to ask my dad for. They (rest of my family) planted all of this while I was at Quakecon.

Small piece of polarized film will make those water shots a lot clearer.

Neat stuff. Since you have the ground, have you given thought to making some reptile shelters? Basically layers of branches and small logs stacked on each other, with grass/sod piled on top, in places where there is full sun and seasonal ponds in a safe (no roads) direction. While not in any way economical or productive, they are easy to set up and kind of cool to observe.

Really have not seen evidence of reptiles here, although we do have several shelters for toads.

Thought of this thread yesterday

Grass got to a foot high before I had time and a rain free day to mow
Mowed a path along the tree line to start.
2 Wild turkeys come out and start walking along the path I just made.
Going to town on the bugs now exposed.

The were so intent on chowing down on bugs they ignored the mower till I was within 20 feet.

Also deer love the salt content along side the road, the salt from winter gets in the soil, gets in the plants.
Best of luck this season
