  1. Whitetail Deer Habitat
    I am on my third year of planting food plots, and still figuring out the best process. I'm working with sandy soil, and have been mostly planting in August. My plots typically consist of a rye/clover/pea/oat combo. In the spring, I typically have some rye and clover from fall planting, and some...
  2. Whitetail Deer Habitat
    Aside from the obvious needs like full sunlight and cross-pollination, how do you choose the location for your apple trees? Middle of your food plot? Within bow shooting distance? In the middle of the woods as a destination? Right now, I am thinking I will plant them along the edge of my long...
  3. Whitetail Deer Habitat
    I am planning on planting a bunch of red pine and norway spruce (350). Is it worth it to buy tree root stimulant to dip the seedlings in before planting? If so, what kind would you suggest?
  4. Whitetail Deer Habitat
    Hey all, I am starting a brand new food plot, and would like help choosing seed mixes to build my soil while attracting deer. pH is about a 6.1, and incredibly sandy (soil test attached). I know there are plenty of articles / books out there on what to plant, but I want your guys' input so...

    I am planting around 400 trees this spring, both red pine and norway spruce. Is there a large difference between the two? And if so, which do you prefer and why?

  7. Whitetail Deer Habitat
    I am looking at planting around 3000 pines, a mix of white, red, and spruce. How long would this take with a group of 4 or 5 guys? I was wondering if there are any businesses out there that would plant for me, without having to commit harvest to them? I tried googling, but came up empty handed...
  8. Michigan Non-Game Animals, Plants, and Scenery
    Let's get the 2018 garden thoughts flowing! What will be new, added, subtracted or the same in 2018? Larger garden area? New approaches to planting, feeding or harvesting? My focus this year is to get the berry patch in shape. Currant bushes are pretty well established and in 2018 I...
  9. Hunting Articles
    As the weather warms and we move towards the end of May it's no surprise that I've been spending a good amount of time thinking about our food plots lately. Despite the warm temps we've been seeing during the day I know that our property has still been seeing low temps and frosts in the...
