After reading these forums I am glad to say I became aware baiting is illegal this year. It’s too bad, last year bait rally did me good, was almost like the neighbors weren’t baiting for the first time and the deer really hit my property up. I’ve been trying the throw and grow method this year too, with good success for some crops. The rye and clover came in real nice, but the corn seems to be eaten up before it germinates. It doesn’t matter when I put it out, rain or shine it’s gone. I figured if I put out some other foods as detractors it may give the corn time to grow, but so far the carrots and sugar beets aren’t slowing down the feeding on the corn seed. Figure my next bet might be to put a broadcast seeder to better spread the seed and give me a leg up. Read something about soil tests too, mine came back low on minerals so I put a few mineral blocks out to hopefully help the soil quality. Really think I’m getting the hang of this food plot thing.
