New food plot beginning pic

  1. Ive dreamed of this plot for a year now and finally started it. This plot will be in a location that is remote. A kill plot made in heaven. While cutting last week I hit my leg (first time ever) with the chain saw. A small gash (as for how chain saw hits go anyways) I learned the hard way. I bought a pair if chaps now. I left the house and walked about 100 yards thru the snow when I realized I forgot my cell phone. Seeing that I had no truck (my wife went down to EauClaire) to visit our kids I had no contact until 6pm if need be. I did not walk back to get my phone STUPID No chaps STUPID, then I go and make the mistake of working myself too fast, sweating and fogging my glasses, and hit just above my knee cap with the saw. So here I am 1/2 mile back in the woods with a gash bleeding pretty bad everytime I take my hand off it. Jackpot!!! I had duct tape in my pocket of a hooded sweatshirt I had on when I left the house! Since my leg didnt hurt yet? WHy I have no idea flesh was pushed everywhere, I duct taped the leg with toilet paper as a cushion. No more blood so I finished the tank of gas before heading home (I wasnt going anywhere anyway unless I called an ambulance, and that wasnt happening, way too embarressing. My leg looks fine today LOL so Im heading back next week to give her more.
    I hope Im doing this right, Im leaving stumps so I can have them pushed over later this spring/summer with out losing too much top soil? Here ia one pic, more will follow later

    Yikes I've always been afraid of doing that myself. Looks like good weather for cutting.
     

  3. Looks like a good spot for a food plot. Glad the chain saw incident wasn't real serious.
     
  4. Yeesh! You lucked out on that one! Looks like you have a good amount of tops there to move off to the side to bottleneck the deer into your food plot. Should be a great kill plot!

    Looks like the start of something good.
     
  6. [​IMG] Im not very happy with the tall growth of weed/what ever. There was no weed controll as I needed to get it in asap at the last second. Im happy with it for the first year. I do have brassica in all that vegitation lol. Next year it will be prestine!
     
  7. With the brassica mix I also mixed in a seed mixture I had left from a gander mountain sale. The mixture said fall feast so the tall growth I have that has seeded out may be actually something that was in a mix. (Hind sight, I should of just stayed with plain ole brassica mix.. Oh well, Im very very happy with what I have accomplished this year. Now for rest of my life the critters and my hunting group will benifit from my efforts
