Seedbed Requirements

Deciding whether to use a tractor or ATV to prepare a wildlife food plant is a big decision to make and the decision may have a lot to do with the success or failure of the food plot.

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you had better plan on purchasing a tractor and plow or contracting with a local farmer to break the plot with a strong farm tractor and plow. Trying to use an ATV in most of these situations can be dangerous, hard on the equipment used and frustrating to you resulting in a less than desirable crop. It's simply more than an ATV was designed to do.

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is in regards to using an ATV for planting a food plot is, "Can I use my ATV to plant food plots or should I invest in a tractor?" The condition of the ground to be broken up, the power your ATV has and the equipment you have to break the soil all has to be taken into consideration to answer that question.

Wilderness Calls Double D Gravity Deer Feeders

I have watched the Redneck Guru over the past two years working his magic constructing the first deer feeder that is only open for business for deer and large game. He has gone back to the drawing board to include continuous improvements. I have witnessed it in the field and at deer breeder operations. Everyone should step up and take notice of this feeder the hogs and varmints cannot get to.

Egyptian Wheat for Squirrels   -  10/25/2013

By: J. Wayne Fears
Feature Article - Adventure - How to - Tips

My introduction to Egyptian wheat, a tall growing grain sorghum, had nothing to do with squirrels. It was simply a supplemental plant for Quail Haven soybeans to run up. The main crop was the running soybeans as a warm season wildlife food plot. However, by early fall I was watching wild turkey and quail going to great lengths to get to the Egyptian wheat seed heads, and more impressive were the number of squirrels coming out of the nearby woods to feed on the wheat seed.
