You might have heard the phrase “from farm to table” as a new and popular trend now adays. It’s crazy that a “trend” has been an important way of life for many people for years prior. Providing for ones family by means of harvesting both animals as well as forage from the ground is a tradition that has been lost in many parts of the country. However, for many people, it is still a way of life. Being able to harvest an animal and bring it from farm to table goes much further than just pulling the trigger. It all starts, in my opinion, with the seed. Therefore, it should more commonly be referred to as “from seed to table.” Starting with the seed means...
Planting small / micro food plots can be a tedious task. However, with the use of top tier food plot implements such as The Plotmaster, planting a food plot can be easy as 1 2 3. One of the biggest tasks you face when making and planting micro food plots is “where do I put my food plot?” Theoretically, you can plant a micro food plot wherever you deem fit. However, there are three key ingredients that you will want to incorporate into your decision. These ingredients are 1) nearby water source, 2) nearby game trails and funnels; and 3) habitat that offers some cover.
Focusing on ingredient number one - a water source. It is important that you have a water source nearby for...
Planting micro food plots involves more than just putting some seed in the soil and letting it grow. In order to have fruitful food plots, you must take care of your land year round. Part of taking care of your land includes adding fertilizer when needed as well as maintaining a healthy pH level in your soil at all times. In order to understand what condition your soil is in and what additives it may need, you must conduct a soil test at least once every 3 years. Soil tests are important for various reasons including: increased crop production, diagnosing problems with growing conditions, protection of excess fertilizer runoff, improving nutritional balance in soils, and it helps save mo...
A phrase that most people are familiar with is “you reap what you sow” - ultimately meaning that you reap the benefits of anything that you put hard work into. This phrase can be true for just about anything you apply yourself to in life, especially hunting and planting food plots.
To some people, hunting is a practice that makes zero sense and seems to be for the sheer sport of having a dead carcass hang on your wall. But to everyone else - hunting is a tradition, a practice of conservation, sportsmanship, and a means of living. To understand this, you have to look past the simple task of pulling the trigger and focus on the work that leads to that moment - what you sow.

Planting can be tricky and scary enough as is for a beginner. However, it really shouldn't be. No matter where you are, location wise, when you are planting - you always want to have healthy soils and adequate moisture. Focusing in on moisture and growing seasons. If you are planting in the north then you will most likely put your food plots in during the spring time and possibly into the summer. You may want to consider planting in the spring if you live in the north or in any area with harsh winters. Planting in the spring will give your food plots enough time to establish themselves and grow roots that are strong enough to survive through the winter. If you live in the south then you will...
When it comes to planting a micro food plot you have many moving parts. However, out of all of these moving parts, you have one crucial ingredient - SEED! Determining which type of seed you need to use in your area is quite crucial when it comes to the longevity of your food plots. Before finding the best food plot seeder, throwing your seed in the ground and saying a prayer to the big man upstairs, there are a few steps you will want to take. First, I recommend having a soil test done on the areas that you wish to plant. Once you obtain this soil test, you can then determine what your pH levels are and if/how much lime you will need to add to your soils. This will also help determine ...
