Growth Results

Amendments to this soil are showing good results but we still have a way to go. This plot gets hammered early and because it's quite small, we have never seen very lush growth. Like previous years, this blend was more sparse than our other plots, but it was still quite acceptable. Weeds were less of a problem this year than last, most likely because we planted two weeks later than we did in 2012.

Activity Results

We experienced the same results as last year. We noticed very good early and mid-season activity but almost no activity in winter. This plot again saw the highest variety of buck activity in daylight. We hunted here often during the early season and passed up several deer. One interesting note was that every submissive buck was captured feeding here however our mature buck only passed through here at night on the way to his bedding areas. This plot was rarely visited by does given the buck activity here. They were running the does off in several photos.


This plot may become obsolete in 2014. Due to the high amount of activity here we are clearing 5 acres very close to this plot. This is a great plot for bucks, but we suspect it has more to do with it's location (it's our most remote plot) than the crop choice. Still, we are quite happy with the consistent results here and the deer seem to visit this small plot every evening. I passed a half dozen rack bucks here in 2013.
