    Habitat Podcast #187 - Daniel Taylor - Food Plots for High Deer Density, Soil Health vs. Bottom Line, Diverse Food Plots, Clethodim Herbicide, Taking Pressure off Plots, Converting to Better Soil & Vitalize Spring Results

    Habitat Podcast #187 - Daniel Taylor is back for round #2! Dan was on last week on EP 186.
    As a die hard whitetail hunter and cash crop farmer, quality soil is near and dear to Dan's heart. Soil health and nutrient efficiency concepts have really perked his interest in the last couple of years and it is crazy how much it contradicts what he grew up learning and practicing as the “proper methods”. "It will take time, but I’m working towards making changes to my cash crop practices as well to improve overall soil quality and profitability."
    We cover:
    Fall Food Plots - Diverse Planting
    Soil health - Original thoughts vs. now.
    Neighbor with awesome soil. shows great yields.
    Minimum tillage & Weed control.
    Clethodim Herbicide.
    Saving $20/30 an acre with cover crop.
    High Deer Density Food Plot Tips and Tricks,

Mr. Ganu ,

Really Learning A lot

Since I’ve started listening I’ve been able to pick up some things to help me build up the quality of deer I’m seeing on my 200 acre hunting land. Can’t say enough. Thank y’all for sharing you wins and loses on how to manage the land.

Two Thumbs Up

Big fan of the podcast Jared and Brian! It is very refreshing to hear guys just like me sharing and helping others become better hunters and habitat members. I am telling all my friends who hunt to tune in. My plots are set for this year but I WILL be putting some Vitalize Seed in the ground next spring. Keep it up guys and best of luck this fall!

Tyler C. from the EUP.

WI Jason ,

Great podcasts
