Dove Field--Rutherford County

This is the first really big dove field that I've worked before and I'm excited to tell you all about it.

It is located in Milton, TN in Rutherford County.  It turns out to about 6 acres, and we planted a variety of plants in hope of feeding and attracting doves, deer, turkeys, and other small game.

The soil was in great condition and we went to work quickly, bushhogging it off and then working it down with a chisel plow and disc.  I then spread the fertilizer and the bigger seeds before discing them in to cover them.  We used Peredovic Sunflowers and Hutchinson Soybeans as our main attractant and then came back and broadcast some Brown Top Millet over the top. 

I look foward to going back in late August and cutting strips in the sunflowers and doing some discing in hopes of bringing in the doves!
