If anyone would like to share a pic(s) of their small woodland foodplot I would appreciate it.

I want to make a couple small 1/8 - 1/4 acre plots back in the woods....but I do not own the land. The landowner has already given me permission to do this but she seemed alittle skeptical of the idea. So I thought maybe some pics of what it should end up looking like would ease her mind.

So if you wanna show off your hard work lets have em. Obviously I would like to see finished/mature plots and how nice they can look. (we dont want her to see the construction phase haha)

thx !

Heres a new plot i put in. Never got pics while planted with the tecomate stand side ultra forage. Came up beautiful, and worked great as a harvest plot. I shot 2 does out of it in one night in the early season, never saw a shooter buck in it though. Its about 1/8 acre. I left in abunch of stumps and just tilled aroud with a atv disc, worked fine.

Here is a plot that I planted smack in the middle of the woods. This was a logging dock that was used to store timber during the logging process. I pulled all the stumps, took a soil sample,2- bottom plowed, disced, limed, fert, disced then planted in Tecomate Monster Mix. I killed 9 does off this plot and passed on many bucks. It is just shy of an acre.

here are 2 different small plots we have--1 pic Taylor is spreading lime last winter, then it shows the plot with the buck he got in it after his work -- The other pic is of a small 1 acre plot with a pond we put in

Great looking plots guys! This one has since got away from me and will probably be nuked this Spring. The lone tree in the back was an Ash and didn't make it. I think I will plant sunflowers thanks to foodplotdude.

Small woodland plots are perfect places to observe deer. This little guy will be "something" someday.

autiger , its close. South American hybrid corn (does well in the south) and iron/clay peas. I did use BioMaxx as well, just not here, it was fairly weed free already.
