Through the years I’ve planted a lot of food plots, but like many of us, we just planted rye grass, mixed in with some clover, or what ever deer mix looked good at the local feed store. This year I bush hogged about an acre of a old grown up fescue pasture that was full of sweet gums, dogfennel, and numerous other weeds. I plowed it under more times than I can count, I did spray it once, even dragged it 3 separate times but still had coffee weed and some sweet gums coming up. I planted 50 pounds of Buck Forage Oats, and 3 bags of 7 Card Stud seed mix along with 200 pounds of 13/13/13, this past week I put out 200 pounds of 33/0/0. its the most beautiful food plot I’ve ever had. No I didn’t apply any lime, yes I know it needs it. Just as soon as Alabama deer season is over, I’ll probably put somewhere between a ton and 2 tons of lime on it. Next fall I plan on planting the Buck Forage Oats, and Trophy Banque, my question is, what should I do this summer to insure I’ve killed all the bad stuff and that it’s in the best possible shape for next fall? If I can figure out how to make the files smaller I’ll post a few picture.
