Did you do that with a tractor or a 4 wheeler HD?  I am thinking tractor since you are a tractor guy.

That one is the tractor......
The one in the woods is 4 wheeler access only ( was sprayed once, may need another dose)

Which brings up a good point.  I am finally into the frame of mind that we should allow baiting for deer.  Why the heck not.  Just like us who raise food plots are doing.  Raising a crop or putting bait on the ground is for any animal that comes along to eat at whatever time it comes along.  May be the deer you want to shoot or may be some crows.  Who knows what will happen and at what time.  The same as the food plot.  I feel especially if it is on land that you own you should be able to drop some corn and see what happens.

Have had a doe in my food plot every morning.  One doe on my trail cam has 2 fawns.  The mow job with my brush mower behind the WD worked great.  The clover is growing back and looks good.  Nice job there HD.

Back plot is almost done being tilled. Keep in mind, this plot is only 25 feet across, but 100 feet long. All tilled with a 17 inch walk behind garden tiller.

I'm trowing on this "no till" seed....but, the bags do say "needs soil contact to grow"  :bonk:

Depends on what you plant in them.
Most grasses, clover and alfalfa will come back every year.
But should be maintained by cutting or mowing to promote new growth.
The larger front plot is in the corner of my hay field which already has clover, timothy, and alfalfa growing.
So I plant turnips, radishes and peas or beans in that one.
The back plot is harder to get to and can't be worked with a tractor. So for the last few years, it was a clover plot.
It has since grown over with other woodland weeds, so I killed it off.
I planted a radish blend in there this year in hopes that next year I can put it back to clover.

Great info.  Thanks.  I need to do the brassica thing again.  I don't think they came up last year.  I will spray it again..  Then replant them

I went out and checked the back plot, it's also doing well.... just have to dress in full battle gear in order to get back there. The deer flies are horrific!
