I just read a great book about habitat management and food plots. Somone else also mentioned this book in another thread. It is called Grow em right by North Country Whitetails
This book is great for those of us in the North who must deal with shorter growing seasons and snow. It is the best book that I have read on the subject, and it is a must for anyone thinking about getting into food plots or somones who has tinkered around in them some. I know I sure gained a few ideas that I have already put into practice. This book will answer a lot of questions before you even think to ask them. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif

I agree. I mentioned this book in this forum earlier this month with a link as well. I hope more people will read it.
It's given me some great ideas as well as an overall plan on where to start and proceed with my master plan for my property.

Just finished reading it. Very informative book. I read earlier this year the Jeff Banks book which I also thought had some great information in it. Anyone have any other reviews of books they have read on deer management / habitat improvement?

You guys got me hooked, and I too think its a very good book. I wonder how many copies get sold because of Jesses?
I have poor soil left from logging, and was concidering mucking out an old marsh area to use for topsoil on some small plots, but the cost would have been prohibitive, the results unknown. My wife basically said "BUY http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbs-down-little.gif BEEF" So the book was worth its price just for helping me to feel better about what I have to work with! As suggested in the book I will try casting some Brassicas in my somewhat established clover plots in spring and then work to better the soil. That alone will save me thousands of $$$, my marrage http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-bowdown-purple.gif still creat forage, and as I said make me feel better. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif I am sure I will use other information from it to make it an even more valuable tool. So I give GROW EM RIGHT http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbs-up-ani.gif http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbs-up-ani.gif

Congrats! That book helped me a lot also. It's amazing what you can do with very little and then make a plan to follow.
Glad to see the book helped.

Does this book tell you how to manage smaller areas or just large plots? I have about 10 acres with a couple grass patches perfect for plots that we are trying to decide what to do with.

The writers own 500 acres that they work with, however they started out with 100 I think.
The book is good for small or large areas and also focuses on habitat management as well, so will it have good info for you? Yes. In fact you can go to their website and read a few passages from the book in the Q&A section.
