I started planting food plots in 1987 in Morgan County, GA after meeting GA DNR Wildlife Biologist Kent Kammermeyer. Early plots were ryegrass and rye grain, planted by working ground with a garden tiller, but the effect on the deer was immediate. This led to a desire to become more familiar with planting for wildlife. Planted plots of cereal grains and clovers in Hancock County, GA from 1993 to 1995. Moved hunting location to Glascock County, GA (below the Fall Line) from 1996 to 2002 which allowed for the experience of growing high quality grains, clover, beans, and brassicas in soils ranging from nearly pure sand on the sandhills to waterlogged clays along the Ogeechee River. In 2002, purchased land in Madison County, GA, in the Piedmont. This has allowed for the moving from plotting for mainly hunting situations to year round experimentation with high quality plot seeds including high-sugar ryegrasses, cereal grains, brassicas, clovers, beans, peas, millets, sorghums, and corns.
Hunting Land: Currently own 170 acres in eastern Madison County, Georgia. Purchased in 2002 and under QDM guidelines since purchase. Approximately 16 acres in cultivated food plots. Also hunt 11,000 acres owned by various friends of crop and grass lands in northwestern Nebraska. Have managed under QDM since 2001
