As a rule we never did "burden" the bank account but I agree and that is the way we will be going from next year forward. I was really focused on my Granddaughter's last year of a youth hunt so I spent some $$ but then again I bought everything in early March. Actually the wife and I have decided other than a couple of very small plots everything is going back to weeds with some trails mowed through them. We are just not that mad at the deer anymore.I think we all should double think buying a bunch of fertilizer for food plots. Yes lime and fertilizer will make them produce more and taste better but I wouldn’t burden the bank account over a few food plots.
