    What my wanna be food plot looked like almost a year ago.


    I raked the leaves off of half of it this year and left it on the other half. We'll see if it amkes a difference. Cut a bunch of trees out from around it this year and spread my lime Sunday afternoon.

    It's shaped like a light bulb and you're looking at the long skinny part.

    cut as many of those small trees as possible, the more light you get to the plot the better it will grow. trees will also rob the moisture from the surface plants. clover will be your best bet.

    Actually there is a little ground blind made on this end of the plot from limbs I've picked up and cut off of trees. It's almost 5' tall right now. Going to keep adding to it until it's over my head and then going to roof it and cut shooting slots with my chainsaw.

    So what you're saying is there's already a roof on it? J/k man, I figured Hayzer hadn't said it yet!

    That plot looks like a great one...I'm excited to see progress pics this spring!
