    It is time to freshen up mineral licks or start some mineral licks.

    That too Dennis. I was planning one for next weekend but it is too wet. It needs to dry for a couple of weeks with NO RAIN!!!!!!Was gonna burn about 10-15 acres. May have to be April or late March.

    BTW I am starting to get calls about Spring and Summer plantings already

    I planted 200# of Deerslayer’s Sweet 16 mix a couple days ago and 150# of soybeans and 150# of iron and clay peas today. I hope the forecast is correct, and rain is coming.:anyone:
    I forgot to turn off my camera today, so I have photographic evidence of today’s planting.

    Visited my food plot today. Ladino clover with some wheat scattered in. The patch is about 1/2 acre but keeps getting bigger by reseeding itself.

    Love my ladino clover plot. So far zero maintenance in two seasons. I seeded it at about 3X the recommended rate. It came out so thick that it choked out the weeds. I'm sure the weeds will come back, so some chemical control will be needed.
    Just ordered 5lb of pre inoculated clover seed off amazon last night to get another clover patch at another stand.
    The deer didn't pay much attention to the corn feeder, staying in the clover. Young immature bucks seemed to be the ones hitting the feeder.
