I have done a bunch of planting this year so far. This past weekend we planted 9 acres of sunflowers for doves and 1 acre of corn in our 2.5 acre impoundment. I am gonna go natural mostly and suppliment with jap millet and maybe some barnyard grass in the rest of the impoundment. May try some milo as a bunch came up last year and did well in there. Also strategically planted 8 gobbler sawtooths and 2 more buttonbush in there to help out. Around the dove fields I am gonna plant 2 acres of buckwheat and 1 acre of browntop millet to have something to cut early. Hoping we get some rain this wednesday so the corn and sunflowers will sprout. The corn in our 6 acre imp in NC will be planted this week. I also planted 8 gobbler sawtooth down there, 2 swamp white oaks and a few more buttonbush. We have about 20 oaks ringing the outside of the impoundment, some up to 8 inch caliper that should be dropping soon. The inside field is all corn. We did all kinds of combinations ie half corn, quarter jap millet quarter smartweed, half corn half jap millet, half corn half smartweed, and all corn is the best by far.
