Hard Work, Hard Play

Hard Work, Hard Play

A food plot went in, 2 stands were hung and over 100 rounds were sent down range.  

It was a good weekend of work on the property.  Eric got both his stands hung in what we think are going to be great spots around our new Big-N-Beasty food plot.  The first is in the same spot he was in last year, just facing a new direction.  His second is in a great spot along one of the few ridges we have to work with.  Getting into it will be really easy and just off the trail.  This could be one of his best chances to shoot a deer in years.  If anyone needs it, it's Eric.  He has been dry for years now.  

We also raked and planted a small "kill plot" that is maybe 10'x14' square.  I had sprayed the area with Round up a month ago, we raked all of the loose plants and cleared as much ground as we could.  Matt used a hand spreader to throw half a bag of Whitetail Institute Imperial Bow Stand blend.  I will be hunting off to the side of this food plot in my ladder stand position this year.  We hope it will continue to draw well into the fall for us.

The trail cams produced some great pictures again this time out.  The enjoyment of seeing the deer on camera makes the hard work of prepping easier each time we go.  The bucks are nice to see, but overall seeing so much deer activity in an area we will be sitting is amazing.

After we were done with our prep work we decided to break out the arsenal and have a little fun.  Matt and I brought our .22 hand guns, Trace brought a .44 Mag revolver straight out of Dirty Harry.  Matt also had an AK47 type semi-auto that his neighbor sent with for us to shoot.  After destroying plenty of cans, bottles and cups from the truck ride up, we all left with a big ole smile on our faces.  

This Sunday we are going to plant the Big-N-Beast from Frigid Forage on our main food plot.  A Polaris Magnum that I just purchased and plenty of man power should make this trip productive and fun!
