Vetch in response to a report titled: What to plant for spring and summer food plots?

They seem to like joint vetch and any type of pea quite well in SE Livingston parish. Last year the drought really hurt everything we planted. Hope some of this moisture is around this spring/summer.
Get a soil sample test done for each plot that you plan to plant prior to planting. If the pH is not correct for the seeds you're going to plant the plants will not be of a good quality.
Just bought 2 tons of protein pellets from Zen-Noh grain elevator in Convent, LA. $110@ton. Its somewhat dusty and contains; corn, wheat, grain sorghum, peanut and wheat product. The protein is 10%, not to bad for the price. You'll need to check feeders after rains to remove any wet stuff which may stop flow.
Not sure but we filled all our feeders with protein pellets this past weekend. Lots of reports that bucks in south LA have already begun to lose their antlers. Will refresh mineral sites as soon as we can.
Take a soil sample prior to planting anything, if the soil isn't right it won't produce quality forage. Most local feed stores have the info you'll need, they are $7 and are sent to LSU ag center. If you like more info pm me.
Spend the time and $7 for a soil sample, if the pH isn't right you can waste allot of time and money and the plot won't produce quality plants. I like joint vetch for the summer if we don't have another drought. Good luck.
We stopped putting out "bait" on the 980 acres we hunt on 10/31/09. From mid November until right after Christmas we saw more deer than in the past several seasons of baiting! Imo not baiting drastically reduces the human scent in the areas=deer more willing to move during daylight hours. We do have food plots and they were better utilized by the deer which is why we planted them to begin with. We'll start putting out protein pellets beginning this Friday and continue into the early fall and not "bait" again next season to see what happens.
Great deer Mitch, didn't know crocs found there way to that side of the river yet!
I hunt in the Killian area, we have seen very few deer since the full moon around Christmas. Last rack deer seen was 12/27/09. Last Sunday 6 hunters saw 0 deer. Don't think they left or maybe they are back in the swamp since the high water subsided.
Looks like Big Dogs deer had a lil to much to drink! Nice looking mounts. $2 must have taught you some tricks!
