Food Plotting

2013 In Review: My Photo Diary

Sat, December 28, 2013

I have already started to think and plan about 2014 activities with food plots, timber stand improvement, and ways to enhance habitat for the whitetail deer and other wildlife.

I like many who visit the HO website, am concerned about the status of the Illinois deer herd.  Much has already been posted on this subject, so I am not going to write about that.  I instead am posting a link to a slide show which is photo diary of the various activities my family and I have done at our farm and a few other farms we hunt.  Most of these activities and pictures may be familiar to you for they were the subject of many of my blog posts throughout the year.  I plan on doing many of these same activities and more in 2014 for I feel our deer herd needs all the help that they can get right now.  As in 2013, I will be posting on my blog all of my activities in “near real time” as I do them.  I look forward to interacting with all of you via the HO blogs in 2014.

Take Care

Kevin,  I wanted to give you a big thank you. Your blogs this year were exceptional.  I started my first orchard this year with 10 trees. I’ll complete it in the spring with 4 more trees. I completed it with confidence because of your blog. I also planted over 10 acres of food plots using your advice & they turned out great. My hightlight this year was hunting with my wife while she harvested a doe & 8 pt buck over foodplot. Saw 28 deer in day & a half. It all starts & ends with great land management. Thanks again you’re a great asset to this website.
