I planted Pennington's Rackmaster Sping/Summer mix in a small hunting plot I fixed up for my daughter to hunt in this year. It has Soybeans, Iron Clays, Sunflowers, Buckwheat and Sourghum.

I ringed it with PlotSaver and got to about 24-28" tall before the rains made the PS ineffective....no more peas.

The have cleaned out most of the peas it looks like....there are no more broad leaf leaves left anyway.

However, we are getting alot of rain and I noticed alot of new growth.

Do ya'll think that it will regenerate enough to continue to be a draw?

Would you fertilize it again to help the new growth?

Thanks,

Mel

more than likely the deer will just keep the new growth eaten. won't hurt to fertilize and see. it should still make a pretty good fall/winter plot as the deer will eat the seed heads of the sorghum (it it's not too tall). I would strongly recommend over seeding the plot with some wheat and brassicas in about a month. try to do it right before a rain.

good luck

Todd,

Thanks...yes I do plan on over seeding all of my annual plots with a combo of brassicas forage oats and wheat.

I'm also going to try to put down some more clover with oats and wheat.
