Our first journal entry for the 2009 hunting season. I will be blogging every day about upcoming hunts, preparations we make, trail camera photos of bucks we are after, and products we use. I hope that this blog will be informative, and fun.
I planted a fall food plot on August 26, and it rained that evening, the next day and was sunny all weekend, Monday evening I took the Moultrie trail cameras (i-40) into the food plot area, and there were tracks everywhere, as well as a nice growth of the clover and rye already popping up. I placed one trail cam in a major pinch point, where a lot of deer enter the field, and another a couple hundred yards to the east where I have been noticing a nice trail coming from the creek area. I have a new product I truly believe in, Bone D Monium. I poured a bag of Bone D Monium on the ground in front of each trail camera, just to draw the deer into the camera’s range. I left the plot around 7 pm that evening. Tuesday afternoon around 5:30 I went to check the cameras, since I had to go by the plot and get a soil sample anyway, and pulled the cards, I had 175 pics on one camera and 432 pics on the other!
The deer LOVE Bone D Monium, and I was impressed. I had a really nice 9 point eat for almost an hour on one spot. The deer ate almost all the Bone D Monium overnight and the next morning. I am looking forward to seeing the result of the food plot and hopefully watch Terra smack a big buck! Check back daily and look for a giveaway coming up in the near future!
