GroundHog MAX and Spring Food Plots
SPRING VS. FALL
Spring food plots are a great addition to any property, and can help lead you to success this fall. Planting in the spring instead of the fall can actually reap more benefits. From the start of May until the end of hunting season, bucks are growing antlers, does are lactating, and fawns are growing. These considerations give you motivation to put out forage for whitetails during the spring. In addition, key fall food sources such as standing beans and corn are planted NOW during the spring. Food plots offer game species such as deer and turkey, supplemental forage opportunities, and can greatly help in attracting and holding more game species throughout the year. While the concept of a food plot is rather simple, the science, planning, researching, and planting that lies behind the simple install of the food plot has caused some hunters to become part hunter, part biologist, and part farmer. The best way to get it done is to add a GroundHog MAX to your arsenal.
ONE VS. TWO
Regardless of how many friends you have, when it comes to planting your food plots you usually wind up doing it yourself. With the GroundHog MAX you can prepare the ground YOURSELF - with either an ATV or UTV. It’s just that simple! The GroundHog Max is specifically made for one-person projects. At just 69 pounds, it is one of the lightest-weight plows you’ll find on the market. The GroundHog Max operates between three and seven mph, and can even handle plowing in reverse. Though it is just half the width of more traditional plows, it is actually twice as fast. The smaller size also makes it much easier to transport from one plot to another.
CAN VS. CAN’T
In most food plot locations, there seems to always be the one tight spot you just can’t get to. If your ATV or UTV can maneuver to it, your GroundHog MAX can plow it. In fact, the small size works to its advantage, letting it fit into tight areas that bigger plows can’t handle.
The GroundHog MAX is also the perfect accessory for creating firebreaks, which are required in many areas of the country.
SUCCESS VS. FAILURE
In order to achieve the most success in the fall, it is important to know WHERE you are going to plant your food plot. Great apps like HuntStand.com can help you map out your property, deer movement, bedding areas, stand locations, and can help you visualize where spring food plots make sense. Once you know where you are going to install your food plot, you then need to confirm what vegetation is currently there. This will help you determine the proper tillage and/or herbicide treatment that you will need to kill the existing vegetation and begin establishing your food plot. Also, it will help you estimate additional costs such as herbicides, which can be a very important step in preparing and maintain a food plot throughout the growing season.
MAX VS. MINIMUM
The spring months provide hunters their first opportunity to begin installing food plots, which in turn offer major benefits in the coming fall.
