Another Superb-uck Food Plot Planted With A Chevy Van!

Last year I had the opportunity to hunt with Jerry  his good friend Edward on a special goose hunt,  RippleOutdoors .

This year Jerry and Edward wanted to plant a food plot for whitetail deer and turkeys.

For those that didn’t read it Edward is paralysed from the neck down with very limited movement. We camouflaged Edward to look like a bale of hay amongst about 80 goose decoys. To see how that day turned out click here

Now Edward was limited of course to helping us planting a Backyard Wildlife food plot but Jerry and I managed to do it very easily and in little time. I sprayed for weeds two weeks ago. Jerry rented a Plotmule from Badenoch Archery and we met at 8am at the proposed plot location.

Unfortunately my ATV was located north and I had no time to retrieve it.

Jerry said we could do it with his van!

I was sceptical as Jerry proceeded to disk up the soil with the plotmule towed behind his van but indeed he did get mos t of it plowed up. When we added a set of harrows I had to take over with my 4×4 truck to finish off the plot.

Now I don’t recommend this method to everyone but we did get it disked up and seeded with Backyard Wildlife Superb-uck seed in just under two hours. The plot measured just over 1/2 acre in size.

Rain had started to soak the soil down making it greasy,

Hence my 4×4

helping out, but I was amazed by Jerry’s van digging in and turfing soil!
