    I went and checked cam cards today. Only 5 pics of a 3 point yearling. Cleared 3 more spots and put out rye and clover with 13-13-13. Hope this weeks rains do the job.

    We need rain. Amazing how much we had earlier, but I had the big equipment out yesterday, and couldn't find any moisture a foot deep into the soil.

    Throw & grow works fairly good, but if you have a 4wheeler & spreader & a harrow or something else you can drag over the seed to cover up a little is even better ! We planted a small soy bean plot earlier this year & about an acre with clover, rye, & various other mixes just a couple of wkends ago, so looking forward to this rain , lol. What ever you do don't give up trying we all have are ups & downs , lol!!

    I put it I with my Plotmaster. I've worked it 3x before I seeded. It has a roller on it too.

    Been putting in food plots for 20+ years. Your right. Don't give up because some years can be good and others a bust. I've also learned that some of the high dollar seeds just don't work in Oklahoma, or anywhere for that matter unless you have deer in a pen where they have nothing else to eat.
