Woke up to a crisp 54 degrees this morning and a much needed rain. I almost threw on a jacket for the ride to work. It's suppose to rain for the next few days so I may hang some more stand this week. I always like to do it in the rain. Lots of deer in the fields in the evening so that has been a good sign. I have a few nice bucks on camera. Nothing to write home about. I am getting to the point where I am diving my family nuts.

Coug I hear you about the lack of rain. It almost looks like fall in my woods because the trees are dropping their leafs. We are getting rain now but we need a lot of it. What kind of camera are you using?


So does anyone have their deer picked out yet? I am just looking for a couple healthy ones. Not really into rack size but I always end up seeing a nice one early and then I try and wait him out. I would like to take a couple doe and a buck. Well I will talk at you guys later. Still waiting for one to get signed in.

Hey guys. just checkin back in, havent been on a a few days, internet has been down. I like the avatar, it looks good. We are finally getting some rain here in Missouri, supposed to get some more in the next few days. We need it bad! I hope to get my plots tilled this week. Hopefully Ill have some decent trail cam pics soon.

Hey Angus what are you planting in the plots this year?

I have a mix of Canola,Clover,Beats,Rape and some other grasses. The clover really needs to be mowed before season.

Hey guys Im back from vacation. We were in KY, The smoky mouintains in TN, andSt. louis, MO. Nice pics everyone.
I checked the camera when I got home and got pics of 2 nice ones. One that i have never seen before. I will be hunting with a recurve this year mostly, but I will probably use the compound to put some meat on the table. Here are the pics. The big 8 point is the new one. That makes 5 definite shooters in my area this year, and only 26 days until opening day!

By the way, I like the team name.

Looks like a good deer. Good luck with that.


Is it just me or does the team name of Silent Entry sound like a cheap porn.

It has gotten hot and muggy here again. Kind of sucks when you have the itch. Still seeing lots of deer out in the plots. I still need to get as couple ground blinds out yet.

We are still missing one so I would imagine Rob will replace soon.

Yeah we got a little storm yesterday which was good. It washed my fertilizer into the ground for my little "in the woods" plot. If I can get a good guarenteed scheduled rain soon I'll plant my foodplot. It's just kind of an experimental plot, I planted it back in June, just to see what would grow, and it grew awesome but then we got a week of striaght HARD rain and it drowned it. It had grown about 6inches in 2 weeks, it was a mix of "No Plow", oats, and clover. This time I think I am going to do some Throw N Grow, Shot PLot, and some No-PLow. That gives me a good little blend in it. I'm going to throw some more 13-13-13 down when I plant too, maybe spruce it up again when it gets a couple inches out of the ground. I think this time around, weather permitting, will produce pretty well. The deer LOVED the clover in the no plow. They absolutely mowed it down. It's not a very big one but it does the job. THis picture is back when I had just cleared it and planted it the first time.

Looks like a great spot Cougar. I planted oats, clover and turnips in a plot between some apple trees that runs about 100 yards long. Figure on putting a blind under one of the apple trees with a view down the length of the plot.

I'm tilling up the spot Sunday! Last time we just used rakes and a hoe. I'm getting kind of excited now, any of you guys have some suggestions on what I should plant? What do you think will grow best?

I love to plant canola. High in protein. The beats are good late in the year in WI. You can never go wrong with clover(red). The deer never seem to leave it. Rape(sp) is good.

I have had my plot sinceMay and it has been a good producer. The beats were planted later though.

Hey guys,,, whos our new team member? I went up to watch one of the hay fields this evening, and saw three bucks together,, one was a really good buck, 10 pointer outside his ears, possibly mid to upper 130s, and the other two were smaler bucks, but it was nice to watch them for a while till it got dark.. It wont be long now.

What about with not as much sunlight as a field?

Coug,I know there are a few types that will thrive in the shade or heavy canopy. I have a buddy that sets me up with all my seed. He works for a co-op and knows his stuff. I will give him a call and find out what he thinks would be best. I had the conversation with him once and for the life of me I can't remember what he said.

Just on a personal level I have had good results with the red clover in the shaded areas. Now they weren't in the woods just on the north side of a tree line so they got a lot of shade.

Yeah, welcome to the team Rickey. Sounds like youve got a good area to hunt;)

I took a ride last night and had to walk 200 yards to the soybean plot behind my uncles corn field. I was sneaking up to an irrigation pivot, when I noticed a nice doe only 30 yards from me. She saw me but decided to hang around for 15 minutes and was extremely nervous. Also in that field was another doe, a buck with 12" spikes, and 2 young 4 and 6 pointers. That is going to be a hotspot this season since that is pretty much the only food except for sweet corn which they are harvesting soon, and a small alfalfa field. It sure got me excited for bowhunting though.

RE: 28-Official Team 28 "Boiler Room Busters" Thread
 
Coug, I am told that the buckwheat and rape is the way to go. The rape has many different kinds and some do better in different climates. I also asked about the Biologic Hotspot. I am told that you can't go wrong with it. I believe he said it was a blend of winter peas and buckwheat. He said the bio is a very good seed that should give you a better gerination %. Hope that helps.

So HotSpot is the way to go? I need to find a way to get it somehow without having to order it. I seem to always like planting a few different things. Right nwo I have some Throw N Grow which has Teteraploid Ryegrass, A blend of forage clovers, and forage Rape. Then I have some Shot-Plot which is basically all brassicas, such as Rape. Any of you guys have access to HotSpot?

Matt/TN 08-24-2007 07:48 PM

RE: 28-Official Team 28 "Boiler Room Busters" Thread
 
It looks like we now havea problem.


If someone can get a hold of some HotSpot for me, PM me and maybe we can work somethig out and I'll send ya a money order.

Nice pics avalanche.
What are everyones plans and goals for this fal? My bow season opens Sept. 15, 3 weeks from today! Then I may be going to Wyoming to hunt muleys and maybe pronghorn, depending if my gramps can get off work. Bow season ends the first week in Jan. 08. My goal is to kill a deer with a traditional bow. I'm going to be hanging several stands this weekend too.

I will be headed to SD for a mulie/wt hunt. I am hoping to get a nice one out there. Otherwise I am going to try and take a deer (any deer) with a recurve. I have not checked any of the cameras that I have on my prop. They have been out for a couple months. I wanted to get one more stand put up this past weekend but was to lazy and busy. Along with the above goals I will also try and get my boys who are 5,6 soon to be 7 in the woods. I had a good time last year with my oldest. I am not to sure if my other little guy is going to be able to sit still, but we will give it a try.
