    I dont feed to much corn. The corn like plants in the plot are sorghum and millet. After it headed out this year they ate the tops off and started eating the leaves, first time I've ever seen that. I mostly feed a protein pellet but I have been mixing corn in with it and they go through about 600lbs every 12 days..

    You've got really hungry deer or a bunch of them! I'd go broke putting that much out. I do like a bag or two a week.

    I catch hell from the wife but if it wasn't deer feed it would be something else I'm sure. I always threaten to get horses and show her a real feed bill..

    Whose planting this weekend? State Fair starts next week so bring on the rain! Decided to keep the plots simple this year, triticale, turnips and winter peas.

    Planting winter mix, and starting a couple scrapes. Using Code Blue scrape mate for first time so we will see how they respond.

    I planted a small plot with cereal rye. First year trying it so hopefully it comes in nicely.

    Good choice, so long as it gets a little rain you'll be good.

    We brought a big water tank and watered the heck out of it. I'll do it again in a day or so. I had to plant this weekend as I'll be headed elk hunting next week and it was the only time I had to do it.

    Whereabouts you headed elk hunting? I'm going to New Mexico the end of October for an elk hunt with the boomstick.

    Headed to Colorado. My dad lives out there so I usually try to go every other year or so. I was going to buy a rifle tag this year but decided to stick with the bow.

    Thanks! I'm just ready to get out of the OK heat! It was snowing in the mountains yesterday. I did see we have some cooler temps coming in arounf the 21st. Hopefully that will be the last of summer.

    On your way back from elk camp, make sure you bring some of that cooler weather back with you
