Food plots, roads and fire breaks. There's about 10 acres total cleared.What should I do with them now? Should I plant some thing to keep the weeds from taking it over? If so,What?

Winter wheat or grazing rye might help reduce erosion over the winter.

agree with above. keep your dirt there over winter and work on your food plots in the spring. consider planting an annual/perennial mix of crimson and white clover which grow well in shaded sites such as roads and fire breaks. The addition of wheat or oats will privide vertical cover.

Personally, i wouldn't recommend planting cool season grasses such as fescue for the simple fact that they provide little wildlife benefit especially in the way of small game. Fescue can also be difficult to get rid of later if other herbaceous plantings are desired.

$75.00 per hour for a D-9. We had freaking mess of dead falls they had to push thru. They finished in two 10 hour days.

How much wheat should I spread per acre? Are you talking no disking or fertilizer, just broadcasting it out there?
