    Camera is facing part of a 1/4 acre plot. I only used my lawn thatcher/atv sprayer/hand seeder to create using Antler King Slam Dunk mix - (brand of rape/buckwheat/radish/peas) and a little bit of Honey Hole (3 kinds of rape/2 kinds of turnips).

    Brad your brassicas pulled through amazingly well and the bulb production is awesome! Honestly appears on par if not hair ahead of ours which is good because it gets cold for you well before us "usually"....picture taken Saturday. 10351884_888149141815_8700368074143358447_n.jpg

    They did. I didn't lose much. There is a ton of food there for late season.

    I hope so. I have 3-5 younger guys hanging around. One weird tall 6 pointer. I know the neighbors are getting some pics of some big guys so I know they are close.

    Taken just over a week ago. The deer are absolutely hammering it. 6-8 each night in this plot with regularity. The entire outside looks like it was hit with a lawnmower. A mix of oats, rye, wheat and brassicas.

    Justin,

    What blend and how many days after planting? This kind of info is really helpful to know :)

    The brassicas are Heartland Wildlife Buck Buster. Oats are Buck Forage, wheat and rye is from the local FS.

    Brassicas were broadcast with a hand spreader and the wheat, oats, rye were drilled in on top of them. We planted on 8/13 but didn't get any rain for about a week for the seeds to germinate so you're looking at about 5-6 weeks of growth.

    Mowed down a spot in my corn plot and planted these Turnips from Merit Seed (highly recommend) planted them the second week of August and they went crazy, cant wait for the frost to see what they can do. First time going with turnips.

    Another quick update on our plot. It hasn't been hunted yet, I'm probably going to wait till November to get on this one, I really want to let the deer get comfortable in it.
