    I have been doing plots for 10 years with discing, broadcasting seed and dragging over it with a 10' piece of cattle panel. (The 3/8" wire panel, not tubing) If it didn't work, I wouldn't still be doing it 10 years later.

    Finally got my food plots in on Monday at my place in OK (just wheat this year) and am planting here in TX today. I went by Deerslayer’s house on the way home and picked up my 4x4 mix, so the deer here will get more than just wheat. The 4x4 did great last year, and the deer and pigs actually still grazing the plantain from last years plot.

    Put in 2, two acre wheat food plots today. Pretty sloppy work, but they are in and now time to get the feeders going.

    Oh I know. My youngest son is up there attempting to hunt, and he just texted me a few minutes ago that many of the roads are flooded. That’s a slam dunk that at least some if not all my place is flooded.:censored:

    This is makes three plantings in a row that have gotten flooded. I’m starting to think food plots on that place aren’t meant to be, and I could’ve bought 3 tons of the protein I’m feeding for what just the seed cost me.:scratch:

    It will stop raining again one of these days and we'll be back to the drought years again. As much as I hate to say it, the drought was almost easier to deal with than the constant mud and rain.......even from the farming aspect.

    Sure makes my clover patch lush! But had to take the 4 wheeler in there today with the road so nasty.
    A side benefit of insanely muddy roads is that it shuts down the road hunters that are rampant in that area.

    I’m SO THANKFUL there are no pigs at my place in OK! Getting seed in the ground here beside my house has been like a magnet to the pigs. I just took my wife over to show her the food plot, and we rode up on a group. One didn’t make it out of the field.:50cal:

    I hate to say it on here, but God will feed your deer for you.
