Here are some pictures of my Bucklunch Ultimate Enticer. I planted about 1/3 of the field in just oats, 1/3 in Bucklunch, and 1/3 mixed. The mixed is doing very well. This is supposed to be a mix of turnips and sugar beets with some other stuff mixed in. It all looks the same to me except for the winter peas. It will be interesting to see how the deer hit it after the frost.

Dutch, This isn't my first plot but it is my first big fall plot. We have about three acres of Whitetail Inst Chicory/Clover blend (2nd year-doing OK). We have planted corn and a bunch of other stuff over the years. Never enough money and time to really do it right. I enjoy messing with food plots and trail cameras almost as much as hunting anymore.

Never tried it on public land. I'm not even sure what the law would be about tilling up public land and planting something.

Can't see the pics on this PC, but look forward to looking at them tonight.

I am 100% with ya on the plots and cams, I get as excited about that as hunting. I can't wait for "mock scrape" season. And seeing those fields of bright green tucked into the colored leaves of Fall, not sure it gets prettier than that. Well when the snow is piled and the deer are digging in it in the dead of winter...well that looks pretty good too.


As far as planting on public land...you have to have the mindset that you are planting for the critters not for a hunting hotspot (which is the mindset I keep for all my habitat work). And yes you would have to get permission to do it.
