Episode 23 1/2 – They Need Water Too!

It never fails… I always forget about something I want to talk about when I sit down to record the podcast.

I forgot to thank everyone who gave feedback through email, iTunes and even the new call in number! I REALLY appreciated the input. Also, I realized that we are missing a potentially major component to a complete food plot and that is water. So, I decided to do a quick episode on a few ideas of how to get water into that food plot.

Episode 23 – Some Spring Food Plot Options

This week we discuss options for your spring time plot. Summer feeding food plots are different than the attractant plots we crave in the fall. As such, your choice of seeds differ also. Depending on your location for your honey hole, different varieties of plants will thrive better than others.

I run through a list of common early season food plot plant varieties and explain which ones perform better under which conditions.

… now go get some seed and get that plot started…

Episode 20 – Woodland Food Plot Basics

Let me start by saying that I was a bit off on this episode. I never pretend to be an expert at this podcasting thing but today I felt like I just started yesterday. It may have been the mention of my father. That still throws me for a loop when I think about it. The good thing is that nobody can fire me for doing a bad job and I have plenty of time to put together a better presentation.

Anywho… This episode is dedicated to food plots; mainly, woodland food plots. I try to explain what you need to think about when planning a food plot.

Episode 13 – My Habitat Improvement Plans

In this weeks episode I talk a bit about my plans for creating a little “honey hole” food plot in my backyard. Since I recorded this from the mobile studio, otherwise known as my Honda Ridgeline, you will notice some background noise. Sorry for that. Hopefully, this episode can give you some ideas about how you can create your own little honey holes around your hunting sites.
