    You’re very welcome!  My brother might start on one of the plots this weekend.   Our other plot just got the water off of it from flooding so that’s going to be a bit.  Good luck to you! You’ll love the results of your plot!

    We are also getting ready to put in some food plots.  We disk and get all the weeds chewed up and leave it a day or 2 and then hit it with the disk again.  We don’t have a cultipacker either. We drag it and plant and drag it again and roll it with a yard roller.  We’ve had success doing it that way. Kind of time consuming but it’s worked.

    I forgot to add on my earlier post, we also plant rye grass in with the turnips so they have something to go after in the early season.  Last year we screwed up and got the rye grass too thick and choked out the turnips.  But prior to that, it has worked really well.

    We don’t plant any turnips until mid-late August.  Currently one food plot has 3 or 4 foot of water on it and the other one has water right up to the edge.

    When throwing cranks do you use a steady retrieve or stop and go or is there a different way you bring it back? I’m out of my element when I start throwing them and only use them as a last resort because I don’t feel I know how to work them back.

    I don’t think that’s crazy. Personally, I rarely use them only because I prefer live bait. I’m sure others on here will know more about throwing cranks. It seems like the people I know that use them are usually using them in the fall.

    I’d look for any places creeks dump in and fish the break in the water where the creek meets the river. Another place to look is downstream side of log jams or any place you see an eddy is a place to give it a shot.

    I know this topic is about coyote vs. pheasant scenario, but what about coyote vs. fawns? I’m sure a lot of the bird hunters are also deer hunters and go after the coyotes for that reason too. Just another angle to look at it.

    I have 6 stands. 2 within walking distance from my house that I’ve never killed a deer on but my brother has mounted 2 deer killed from that stand in the last 4 years. I have 4 others that are 1 mile away. I’m very lucky to be able to be short on time and can go get in a stand in a moments notice.

    It looks like there different brassicas that are shorter or longer growing. I’ve read there are some you want to plant 60-90 days before a killing frost and some you’d want to plant 150-200 days before the killing frost. If you’re going to do the shorter growing season I would wait to disk it next summer. You’d have to disk it, let it lay a few days, and then hit it again and see what it looks like. You may have to do this a few times depending on how much vegetation there is. If you want to do the longer growing ones I’d disk it this fall yet once (weather permitting). As Asgrow mentioned about errosion, if there’s a chance for it I would wait till after the heavy spring rainfalls to disk or you could end up with a disaster.

    I’m saying 175 and possibly higher. Real good mass and length.

    I’m not good at guessing age. It does look to be an older deer with his body size. Scores 145
