    Met a local guy out at the camp yesterday that does mulching. Nice young man, mid to late 20's and sound like he is honest and has a work ethic. He thinks he can run through all the trails and knock down the stumps to grade in a day and a half, between 2 and 3 grand, he is going to send me a firm price.
    I am concidering it - by the time i rent or buy what I need and spend all my time I think I would come out on top and it is done now and now taking a couple years.

    Hired a mulcher to clean up the trail - asked him to becafull of the food plot. I think I put down to much nitrogen some of it looked burned - between the mulcher and the nitrogen there is not much left, hope it comes back some.

    Vern looks like your doing a fine job!
    The trails you are planting down, after they start growing, do you plan to still drive them? Are you a Deer Hunter or just enjoy wildlife? I ask because planting down trails is no really not recommended. The reason being, typically you have two types of plots. A feed plot or a harvest/kill plot. When you have a long stretch of trail unless it’s straight (shooting lane) the deer have no place to be thus making it potentially detrimental to your hunt and decreases your chances of harvesting an animal.
    The above statement even holds more value if you are a bow hunter

    Vern, Two things if you bow hunt and are planning on hunting along the trail and you are insistent on planting down all of the trail. Here is a suggestion I would plant down the trail with something lick a Medium Red Clover and then plant in you White Clover in your kill areas. What happens. The clover is still there to help with Fawning and Milk Production in the spring due the high protein content. However as we move to toward fall Deer shift there diet more toward carbohydrates. So how do you alter that. One way is to fertilize the kill plots with urea in early fall. This will sweeten the clover and make it more desirable for deer. By having these spots (kill Plots along your trail) you know create an environment in which several groups of does will visit several spot (Kill Plots) and Does bring in Bucks

    Thanks for the input. Having had stumps in the trail I could not disc so raked it and spread Throw and Go. This was more of a quick thing to get something growing and it is close to the middle of the property so wanted something to draw them in. The main trail, where planted, goes front front to back with several branchs that go to the swap. I may cut some trees to fom a bigger clearing next spring.
