How's everyone's food plots look. I planted mine first week of September and they look terrible. Weeds have taken over and hardly any growth except my timber bottom fields that normally flood in January. If my disc didn't snap last week working at a different club I would consider re-discing and planting a few of mine. We need rain and cooler weather!!!

Seems the early plots didn't due too well due to the weather. The place I hunt replanted last week. Should do alot better with this rain & cooler weather. Good Luck to everyone.

I'm new to this food plot stuff... I just tilled up about a half acre with the tractor and tiller. What is "too late" to plant for winter wheat, oats, clover, etc?

Your fine planting now. I do food plots for money. Normally it's about 3 property's each year all close to mine. This year I added new property's and bigger tractor. So I rolled the dice hauled all 3 tractors to my place and planted earlier then I've ever planted which is why I asked the question. I bought 5 bags of rye today to top dress this weekend. All my other places look good with no complaints. I think next year I'll just plant my bow plots early then plant all my big stuff mid October. It cost around 4k to plant my place so I hate gambling with other members money.
