Food plot in the sky
#1
Heard an idea this weekend that peaked my interest.  A guy on my lease with put tree food all around a few select white oaks that align with his hunting stand choices.  His thinking is it will make for a stronger, healthier, tree and better acorn harvest and maybe even better tasting acorns. 

Talk about a cheap, easy, and possibly genius idea!!

Absolutely!  Of course it will boost the health of the tree, I question the taste of them.  But a healthy tree is going to make for some good food for sure.  Lets put it into action!
