    I wouldn't bother with fertilizer for winter rye at this point in the season, rye grows like a weed anyway. Yes, oats will freeze out, the only benefit is for an added fall attraction at a certain area where you want to draw early archery deer to.

    That’s one thick stand of oats. What drill are you using ?

    Thanks

    Those were broadcast. I have a perception that for the same number of seeds per square foot, oats come in quicker/thicker than rye. Between the deer and Turkey, I expect every seed head to be gone before spring.

    Winter Rye, oats and apples. That’s all you need. Your place is looking good. Good luck this year

    The beans are still holding. Probably take the e fence down soon. The little bit of corn I planted is gone. No activity in the brassicas as of a week ago, but there have been a couple of frost since then.

    All of the sunflowers have been picked clean by song birds. I do have this little milo/millet spot still going.

    I put an end to this guys fun on the morning of opening day.

    I also took a doe in the afternoon.

    Last week at work I found a spot that was littered with these fellas.

    I didn’t know the grew this far north, zone 4b. The tree is huge, between two houses.

    Happy November all !

    Some of the PTTs really made some large bulbs. I hope they provide some winter feed.

    Towing the Amish Redneck to this years spot, overlooking a 15 acre clover/alfalfa ag field.

    I tried doing a sit on Monday afternoon, but the winds were swirling so much that I probably did more harm than good.

    Brassicas continue to amaze me, we had a rough late summer when it comes to rainfall, but the brassica patch came through just fine. We got a couple small rains that kept them going just enough until the heavens finally opened up the middle of October.

    I’m running 13 cameras on 400 acres this year. I have vids of 3 shooter bucks since August A big six, an eight, and a short tined 10.

    The neighbor shot the 8.

    The landowners son shot the 6

    Image1636727282.925678.jpg

    Which left the 10. I hadn’t received any vids of him in the past couple of weeks, so I was concerned that someone else had taken him, and it was going to be a doe only season for me.

    That all changed at 4:35 yesterday.

    180 lbs, dropped in his tracks.

    Gonna grab some pix after the rain stops, and then 1/4 him up, and get him on ice.

    Love it when a plan comes together.

    What is that tree? Nuts look like buck eye but the leaves and bark don’t. Almost like a wide chestnut leaf.

    Weekender 21. I guess I was thinking it is some type of Chestnut, but not sure as I’ve never seen one before. That’s one of the reasons I posted the pictures on here. After a little Wikipedia reading about Buckeyes,it seems as if that’s what it might be. Seeing how the nuts are poisonous, that could explain why the ground was covered with them.

    I did a card pull a few days ago. I was surprised to see three new bucks on the property.

    This six point. I suspect that if he wanders in front of the landowner, he won’t make it until next year.

    Image1637892439.495415.jpg

    This crazy looking thing. It’s a still from a video, so hitting the little triangle won’t get it to play. As far as I can tell, the left side is not broken off, it just looks as if it never grew more than an inch.

    Image1637892613.641660.jpg

    I also got a vid of an eight, but it’s quick, and he’s kind of far from the camera.

    Kind of cool to see the new bucks. I’m headed back to the land this weekend with plans to harvest a doe.
