October 1st here... For as food plots, have not put out any in years. I hunt just over 360 acres along the Mississippi River. All which has been covered by flood water the past 4 years. The ground basically runs due north and south. It is very hard to hunt with a favorable wind. This is the first year after all the flooding. The farmers have planted the entire "bar ground" this year. The first time in over six years where they've planted that much ground inside the levee. I scouted last week and with no rain it's hard to see much sign. Access trails throughout the woods are no longer recognizable. Plan on getting a dozer and opening up some new ones and also clearing out old existing food plots for next season. So it doesn't look to promising for Oct. The week of Haloween I will be making my yearly trek 3 1/2 hrs. north to "Heaven" where I will be hunting non stop to Thanksgiving. Heaven is what I call public land I've been hunting in Brown & Adam County's since 1988. This place has made so many memories and stories over the years. I plan on getting my camera out this weekend but like I said it doesn't look all that promising along the river this year.
