Food Plotting

Sunflowers In Full Bloom

Sun, July 21, 2013

A couple months ago I purchased a Panasonic HC-V720 High definition video camera but I haven’t had much time to play with it. I finally decided to read the instructions and use the camera to take some video footage of our sunflower field which just came into full bloom.  I was able to do some basic editing via Microsoft Movie Maker software which came with my computer and eventually get a video posted on YouTube.  This was my first ever post on YouTube and I have a lot more to learn regarding the proper file format and video resolution quality—any pointers would be much appreciated.  At this point, my thoughts are that I might be able to use videos in my Food Plotting Blog to better illustrate and communicate food plotting topics, but we will see how that goes. 

A field a blooming sunflowers is an unusual and spectacular sight to see on the Illinois prairie—hope you enjoy the video.

Had a question for you… We are having a hard time with the deer staying out of the corn. It is so bad to the point about a 1/2 acre plot of corn has about 20-30 tassels total. Any suggestions? Hayley

LOL, I can relate ,last year I planted and acre+ of corn, a tad late and it came up great. I felt like the king of my first rr corn plot, but once they started producing ears the deer and raccoons decimated the plot and all I was left with was bare stalks. Not one ear of corn was left.
So I will never be planting corn again.
