    Actually just testing my posting skills.  Planted this section about 2 weeks ago.  We’ve had a ton of rain.  It will be interesting to see how it turns out.Food Plot June

    Corn PlotHere’s the corn field plot 100 yards down the trail.  This is a thumb at the end of a ridge. Trails at the end go into my 2 sanctuaries.  Tree stand in the high trees to the left.  Wondering if the corn will actually hurt my chances early in the season.  Use to have plot food in the area in years past.

    From what I have seen they feel safe traveling the edges of the corn that close to the woods. And they seem to come out earlier than you would think. Could be an amazing spot. Good luck.

    If you look close, I did mow a strip along the woods from the trail at the end to the trails to the far left, just inside the grass line.  What do you think, mow a path through the corn to get to the stand?  5′ wide maybe?

    Got a trail cam over the corn spot now, got a huge buck track in the mud this week.
    Anxious to see if he walked by the cam, and if antlers are growing much yet.

    It may not hurt to have a path through the corn. As long as you make wide enough you can sneak through there and use it for cover. I have done that many times. The less you walk in the grass the less scent you leave on the edges where they travel. I need to go check my cams too. I haven’t taken them down since last year. I run them year round. Had some prospects last time I checked it about a month ago. Should be able to see some real progress now. But I have to get away from work long enough to go check them!!!! Guess where I am now!

    Nice work. Mines about the same as yours.  This will be my first year hunting my own land. I did about 1 acre of corn and about a quarter acre of chicory and clover. Solid acre of pumpkins too (100 or so tomatoe plants). Ill shoot a deer but am focusing cornfield for geese and ducks After harvest.
