Well boys my life is now completeBig Grin I just bought 287 acres of land! Property consists of 40acres of bottom feild and the rest hardwood ridges. Ground is surrounded by national forest on one side, 900 acres tract on another with little hunting preasure! Should be able to draw alot of deer out with some game plots!
First thing I was planning on doing this spring is planting a large destination food plot. I want low maintenance so I was thinking a clover mix. Any thoughts? Anyone know the cheapest place to buy bulk clover seed?
I also plan to get a fruit orchard started right away with apples and pairs. Any sugestions or experience in this would also be appreciated.
Oh ya and planting some dunsten chestnut trees too!
 
My brain is on over loadBig Grin

Just to correct a gramatical error:
Low maintenance and a fruit orchard do not belong in the same sentence or paragraph or chapter.

Any persimmon trees on the place? Their fruit ripens late and stays on the trees late and attracts the deer and other critters.

Congrats on the land. Oh yeah, and I hate youBig Grin

Persimmons are one of my BIGGEST attractants on my property.  I have a few very productive trees and the deer love them.  I sometimes just sit and watch as they stand up on their hind legs "picking" the fruit.  Haven't been able to bring myself to shoot one while feeding on the persimmons...

  Maybe not enough female trees?
 
"The persimmon tree is a species of hardwood tree that produces an orange-colored fruit that has a sweet taste once it ripens. Like many types of trees, the persimmon is dioecious, a botanical term that means there are both male and female trees. The male trees produce male flowers that contain pollen. The pollen fertilizes the flowers on the female trees, resulting in the persimmon fruit. These male flowers are the key to making the differentiation between the persimmon sexes."

I guess the this is why the male Persimmon considered such a HARD WOOD. Its is used for Golf Clubs and shuttles in the weaving industry. Smoothly sliding the thread in and out of the loom. Light It Up.

Love what you guys have done with the thread!! Lol
Planting a fruit orchard was part of the sales pitch to my wife and I don't think she will like persimmons :)
Their is a spring fed creek that runs thru the bottom fields. I plan to by a little 2 hp water pump to water my trees. This will give me an excuse to go out their every wk!!! Dunsten chestnut trees have also intrigued me. If you guys haven't heard of them check em out. Realtree farms is now growing an selling them! Can't wait to get my hands dirty! We don't close till the first of May. I'm hoping to get access for opening day of turkey season!!!!
Tks for the good feed back boys

Good for you! When I retire and have time to play I'm going to buy a farm / hunting land. The wife will have her place close to the Summit here in B'ham and I'll have a place to play out in the country. Need three years to get my youngest out of college then 4 more to retire. Wide open till then.

Thanks steelbenz!!!
I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum. Im 27, been married only a few yrs and 2 boys 5 and 17 months. I wanted to make this happen before these rascals get really expensive. My wife an I are fortunate to have stable medical careers and I own a successful landscaping business. I talked my wife into making the plunge now since its a buyers market and its always been our long tern goal. Maybe you can use the same sales pitch on your wife:)
No if it weren't for my penny pinching wife who I refer to as sexertary this could have never happened.   I would have bought guns an scopes!!!! Lol
Good luck on your farm. Hope you get it sooner than later

Selsor
