This is my 1+ acre food plot that I have planted on the hilltop behind my house. A farmer buddy of mine likes venison, so he gives me some of his left over seed and I plant it with a rotary spreader that I pull behind my sons quad. Then I lightly disc it in and hand the reins over to Mother Nature. My wife talked me out of spraying roundup anymore, so it's got a fair share of weeds too. Anyway, my buddy plants a 1/2 rotation off of my neighboring farms, so I'm the only place around with corn this year. I'm not a farmer, and this is far from an exact science for me. What I can say is that with very little money or time invested, I've got a nice little patch that provides food for the wildlife, in-turn providing some great hunting for me and my kids, right in our back yard. Sure, I might have over seeded, and the ears may be smaller than corn grown for harvest due to weeds, late planting, no fertilizer, lack of rain, etc. etc., but... it still produces food and they still eat it. It gets picked clean by the end of winter no matter what. (You can see my old water tank blind out in the middle of the corn.) Now for the fun part. In the 3rd picture, you can see the 250 foot zipline that I just built. I took these pics from a large hang-on treestand that I hung 20 feet up on a utility pole as the starting platform. The kids flipping LOVE it. I spent around 4 hours this weekend stopping them and pulling them back to the starting point. I've got materials ordered to build an automatic braking system in order for my wife and I to give it a go. I don't trust the leather gloves or my grip to stop an adult. Been wanting to build one for years and finally decided to do it this summer, as my honey-do-list has gotten more manageable, and our kids are old enough to trust around it. If you've ever thought about building a zipline, or a food plot, I highly recommend both.
