Government Lobbyists Changing the Future of Hunting? A HUNTR Podcast Episode with Skip Sligh

In a recent episode of HUNTR Podcast, Skip Sligh, a like-minded hunter who knows a thing or two about mature deer, was the guest. With Skip's experience hunting Iowa and his property management practices, he shares his knowledge in this podcast.

Government Effect on Deer Hunting

Skip and the guys dive right into topics such as state regulations and how it affects the hunting community. We talk about it all the time, what does the future of whitetail hunting look like? With various rules and regulations being a factor in the discussion, we have to act on them. What is it going to take for the midwest to stay great for whitetail deer hunting? Is it possible for states, such as Ohio and Michigan, to improve while we see the downfall of Kansas and Iowa? We also touch on other subjects such as hunter ethics and having an appreciation for hunting growing up. Sit back and enjoy the show as Skip and the guys share their opinions on the current and future issues of deer hunting. [embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a27IGMKIIdw[/embedyt]

Planting Corn for Deer Food Plots

Planting Corn as a Food Plot for Whitetails

Do not plant your corn too thick.
  • Planting depth: 1.5"-3” deep
Be careful, go slow, and check every 10 minutes (depending on how much you're planting of course!) to make sure seed is in each furrow. Visually inspect with a screw driver, making sure the seed is there and at the proper depths. Can conventional till or no till, if you do it carefully (row cleaners or cleaner soil). UREA – get treated if no till. Disc in if not treated. Spray after if you work the soil.

Before Planting Your Corn Food Plot

Spray 2-3 qts Atrazine (or simazine- EITHER IS JUST FINE!) + 40 oz. S-metolachlor (or Acechlor) & you could use light 2,4-d if you wanted. 3rd herbicide that’s a must in the mix…. Callisto (GET GENERIC Mesotrione) at burn down with Atrazine & Dual II. N-P-K (if no soil test)… (BELOW – just spray Acuron or Bellum + Post emergent, etc if you want to make simple) ACTUAL NITROGEN to ground per acre: 140-200 lbs. P= 60 lbs., K= 70 lbs. Pelletized lime: 200-400 lbs. per acre. If need more sprayings, Round-up or Liberty (depending on which gene it’s meant for in corn) & possibly 2,4-d if it’s well before corn tassels. More atrazine & dual is an option as well. [caption id="attachment_3582" align="aligncenter" width="640"]tilling a food plot with a tractor Whether you till or use no-till methods, proper soil preparation is very important in food plot success.[/caption]

How to Plant Corn in Your Food Plot

30” rows or wider is fine, 25-35k seeds per acre is ideal but you can plant a bit heavier if the deer tend to pressure it (browse it heavily). PLANT APRIL 20 to May 20. Other good pre-emergents are available and you should research what works well in addition to atrazine, Dual (and something like Callisto) & post emergent in your area. There’s Herbicide that contains: Atrazine, S-Metolachlor & Callisto on the market – this might make this simpler for you. Just add a post emergent with it and spray it down. I believe the pre-mixed “cocktail” is branded with names like: LUMAX, LEXAR, ETC (get generic). ACURON is a newer mix that has all 3 + bicyclopyrone, If you want to make corn EASY… Acuron with Post emergent (like Liberty, Round-up, & even add 2,4-D & ammonium sulfate) will roast everything and keep it clean for season. SO, if it were ME, I’d spray: 40 oz Liberty or Round-up, pint of low vol 2,4-d, Ammonium Sulfate & Acuron…. some possibility for a 2nd spray later with a post emergent. I would plan on making a second pass or be ready to make a second pass.

Here is a good PDF on Branded Corn Herbicide Options from Syngenta (you could also google generics for other options)
