All right ya'll bare with me I'm a newbie. The land I have leased has a gas line running right throught the middle of it. The property owner has equipment to plant some serious food plots. I have already planted all the clear areas. That is probably a toatal of 5 acers or so. My delima is that I am competing with a neighboring property. I have always been able to glass alot of deer over there, but they don't seem to care for my winter wheat and turnip greens. Have I not planted enought food for the deer or have I not planted the corret food. My number one question is: If I need more food plots is it ok to plant on the gas line?

I would call and ask, but I'd say it would be OK...You can't plant whatever you want if the gas lie runs through your back yard

I would plant an anual of some sort for this very reason. Maybe some crimson clover-oat-wheat mix.

tndrbstr, no i don't really hunt much aroun knoxville. Like i said i wish i could find some land, but it is hard to find anyone who will just let you hunt on good property. In this day in age you get the cops called on you if you even try to aproach someone's house to ask. I started to hunt up around norris lake on tva land, because when the lake dropped it created quite the little honey hole in some places. as long as you are with in about 20 ft of the bank you can hunt it. I found two deer that were sick with that ehb so I never did go back. have you ever hunted the forks of the river wma or hickory bend out on melton hill?

tndrbstr, well that is the main reason i drive 4 hours to hickman county to hunt. I'll tell you what though it was so slow out there this year that i have really started to explore my options a little closer to home. let me know if you find any land to lease near by i'd be more than happy to go in on a lease if it's got deer. I am new to the area moved here in 2003 so i wouldn't even know where to start. contact me if anything comes up bobthebowhunter@yahoo.com

im sure that planting the gas-line will be no problem, as they will often plant them themselves, rye grass, wheat, etc. also, i have read that various utility companies offer cost-share incentive programs which will help with the purchase of seed at least
i highly recomend perrenials in order to promote year round deer usage, check into types of clover or alfalfa if anything i believe variety is the spice of life, the more varieties you plant, the less they have to leave (your property) to go get.
