Getting a favorable amount of rain on your food plot at the right times is always a challenge. Last year it was too much rain too often, while not getting enough seemed to be norm in years prior. This year it seems the rains have come at just the right times and without the repeated flooding we saw last year. And let's not forget the army worms that made many hunters throw in the towel last year.
Let's hope it's a trend that continues through the entire season.
Looks like we got some more rain at our place in East Texas from the radar this morning. I need to check the farming section on Weather.com to see how much rain we got, I bet 1/2 inch but need to confirm.
Would have like to had some earlier than what we did. I checked a two of my plots couple of weeks back and they were doing ok but just starting to come up. Deer were already eating the tops of my peas down long before they could ever make peas.
I planted the 13th of October. Have had 3 different rains, totaling a little over 2", and I believe it looks like the best stand I have ever had, There are acorns everywhere so, so far the hogs are leaving it alone, and counting this morning I have had 3 frosts, so no army worms either. Looking great in my fields. Will be up in the stand in the morning, looking over one of them, there are so many acorns here in Palo Pinto county, they are not coming to the feeders.
