    What's the point of buckwheat?

    I use it in a mix for soil health and it gets eaten well. We also learned that you need a few acres of it or the deer wipe it out about the time it starts to flower, when planted in a monoculture. That’s the good thing about plotting. You can figure out what is best for you, your deer, and your...

    Camera mounting setups

    On my lease, we make/buy tree screws so we can rotate the camera as we need it. One of our members makes a tripod for his solar panels so that it can be placed in optimal sun. He buys Amazon cords that are 6-8 feet with the appropriate camera power plug on at least one end and we can rewrite the...

    Clearings with a forestry mulcher?

    We had a few acres cleared at our lease several years ago. The hardwood chips and pieces were breaking/broken down faster than I thought would happen. The pine chips had to raked up so that we could plant. We still have piles of pine chips and it has been roughly 6 years since they were made...

    Dedicated 20 Gauge Turkey Gun

    Look at Savage and CVA single shots too. They are making some pretty nice shotguns for turkey hunting(since H&R isn’t around anymore). I like Carlson chokes and would look at JEBs if a Carlson wasn’t available. I believe the Savage uses JEBs. I like Hevi Shot magnum Blend and would also look at...

    Winter minerals

    I have seen deer use these, but it takes them a minute to figure it out and there has always been cattle around using it. I’m guessing it’s a monkey see, monkey do type of situation and I don’t know how long it took the deer to figure it out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Throw N Mow thread...

    Frost seed your clover in February/March and follow up with cleth once it warms up and your “weeds/grasses” start growing. This way, you will have clover popping once it starts to warm up and fawns start dropping. 2-4db will kill more than just grasses and leave the clover, if you want to go...

    best deer blind windows

    A lot of people don’t consider the time it takes to build one, even precovid, when prices were cheaper. It is nice building it yourself for the pride and getting it how you want. With todays manufacturers, you can get a blind in just about any shape or size you want. You just have to decide how...

    We mostly have used plexiglass, but every so often we get some smaller windows out of demo houses or replacing windows. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Stone Branch, build it, they will come.

    I have $1 that you can shoot that coyote and a deer will still show up shortly after. We’ve shot coyotes and deer and had other deer come out of the woods within a few minutes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
