It’s the time of year for planting wildlife food and cover plots in Nebraska. So, my good friend and wildlife colleague Pete Berthelsen of the Nebraska Pheasants and Quail Forever organization (www.NebraskaPF.com) takes over my blog with some cutting edge info on establishing permanent wildlife food and cover plots. He wants you to take a test regarding the establishment of food plots, seriously. I did. It’s quite interesting. I learned a thing or two and you will, too! Read on …
This link on our website at: http://www.nebraskapf.com/PDFs/Food%20Plot%20Options-Giant%20Ragweed.pdf will allow you to take the “Wildlife Food Plot Test”. This quick survey may allow you to look at ‘food plots’ in a different way, particularly if you have limited experience or equipment when it comes to establishing food plots.
Based on my personal experience and the many phone calls I get at this time of the year about food plots, this quick test that I run callers through might be of interest to you. Thinking and approaching wildlife habitat questions with an ‘outside the box’ option might just work in some habitat situations (see pic below).
Thanks for taking the test and have a great day!
