I just couldn't take my old one anymore. One member brought a guest pretty much the entire month of January. He would pin him out, go to his stand, and they left the gate open. One time he didn't even show up. 

Then in Feb he brought 3 guests. That was the final straw. 

Joined a smaller one, no powerlines or railroad tracks through it. No coon hunters. Guests have to be approved by the board. They will limit it to 3 guest days, and guest deer come off your deer count, which is 5 Doe's and 3 bucks. Kids don't. 

They don't spring plant, so I said, do you mind if I do? Nope, just tell us what you planted where. So far, I have planted one field in Eagle Large Lad. Planted 3 in clay peas. Got 50 pounds of regular soybeans and 25 of clay peas left to plant on some more. 

On one of the clay pea fields, I planted them in the middle. I am going to do a plot on the other side of it with Soybeans and see what the deer do. I see why people like clay peas. Those suckers sprout well. 

I sprayed the Eagle field with roundup already. Oh and the COOP, less than a mile back down the road. I mean could you ask for more? 

And every field got a back of procal lime.

Can't disagree w/ your reasons for changing camps, and I admire the effort your putting into the new club.
Can't say I agree w/ soy, I don't eat it (estrogenic & GMO) . And I wouldn't use Round-up. 
That said , I do do admire your effort and ambition. The new club is lucky to have you.

I planted some soybeans last year and sprayed them with 2,4DB, a very low concentration of it at that, and it kind of burned them back. SO I am somewhat leary of trying that again. I think it works on the plant tips or something?? 

I got some grass killing herbicide that worked well and didn't kill the beans, but it didn't do anything with the broadleaf weeds I had that were taller than beans. I may not have that issue in my current club. 

What I am attempting to do is get to a place where basically plots aren't disced and every new crop is planted in the "mulch" created by the prior plot decomposing. The base for the plot has to be soybeans, which will fix nitrogen. Then the fall planting will be some cereal grains, brassica's, and clovers. 

I really need a seed drill. 

So that is why I went with the GMO beans on one field this year. To see how that worked.
