Default Post Season Pictures Big Boys made it!!!!

I had hoped I or my boys would have another chance next year. And if poachers keep away and he hurries up and looses that rack, we will!!! Any guesses as to what he may score next year? Planting peas and possibly soybean end of the month.

Then we have my 6+ year old. Really would have liked to have him on the wall. Just because I have had him on camera for 3 years!





Last year.

First one should do 135-140, as he stands. If you put the soybeans in and you have adequate rain, he could blow up to 155 or better. If I were you, I would go with the soybeans that don't make beans...just leaves (special strain) and forget about peas. They have the greatest impact on horn growth. Also, make sure you get some minerals in the ground NOW.

Soy will priduce better growrh than Iron Clay or Cow peas? I am new to this. I know they plant em up north and grow giants. What is the difference in the non bean producers and other? Thanks for your response

PHS is referring to forage soybeans like Eagle and Tyrone. They are genetically engineering to produce more plant matter than bean pods. Eagles are crazy expensive ($100+ a bag) but have great regeneration from browsing and are RoundUp ready, so you can have a clean plot. Check with DBW Outdoors (AL) for Eagles...the Large Lad and Southern Managers Mix is what we used with great success in the past.

With plots like cowpeas and regular ag soybeans, the weeds and grasses will quickly overtake the plot if you are not on top of spraying with Clethodim for grass and 2-4D for broadleafs.

Protein pellets are the way to go and the results will be evident after 1 year with antler mass and body weight. I have never had a drought or weed growth deter a protein pellet in a 55 gallon gravity feeder. I have tried the summer crops and unless you put up a solar powered electric fence around the crop to keep the deer off until plant maturity or pay for the round up ready seed. Then you become a glorified meteorologist watching every shower that could possibly rain over your property during the summer. Mother nature will not affect a gravity feeder. Based from my experience from several attempts at summer crops.

You have to plant a cover crop that matures faster than beans, like sorghum. Sorghum planted with soybeans will give the deer something to browse on until the beans reach maturity.

South AL I'm trying to figure out what a cover crap is. Seems like the scent would deter deer activity.
