    Last year, late spring, before the drought. I planted corn, but most didn't come up. Overseeded with wheat, the turkeys ate it all. Frost seeded clover back in february, its starting to come up. Can't believe after the corn being in the ground almost a year. I have a food plot, full of corn. :D

    we want pics, we want pics!! :D:D

    I'd like to plant corn, but my plot is only 1/2 acre, they'd eat it all up before start of Bow season most likely!!

    i would be more inclined to guess that what is coming up is from the ears that matured last year and fell to the ground or weren't ate that
    the kernals that survied are now growning not really un common in normal corn that isn't hybred.
    it would be near impossible for the seed you planted to lay in the dirt and then grow a year later

    but i think you were meaning to say what i did i just tried to clear it up a little

    ;)
