Food plots are always a gamble. It was wet back in July so I planted Brassica kinda early. It got up good,,but then,,August came. NO Rain all august. Brass slowed down and deer chomped it to the dust. So much for Brass this year. Could still plant rye,,oats,,wheat in Sept,,but has to get real wet. Ground hard dust now a foot down! My clover is dried up too. Apples on trees. They may just be my only plot by November. Funny -Food plots are Officially OK,,,not considered "Baiting"...To me planting anything just to feed deer, IS Baiting.
