    My thoughts on planting potatoes and other things around your best fishing holes.
    Cross posting...sry.

    It's a good idea.....you get a feed even if you don't catch a fish, and with little expenditure in time you have created a food bank in the ground that you can draw upon in an emergency or when times are lean.

    An extention of this concept would be to cultivate perennial plants that would attract game to the vicinity of hunting stands on your property or hunting leases that you may use.

    Thx. I was thinking of doing some apple, pear and possibly peach trees too...if I ever have any kids I'll be able to tell'em the story "Daddy planted that tree 10 years ago so that if we don't catch any fish, we can still eat..."

    For hunting stand baiting.....*cough* salt lick.

    yes, but your guerilla garden of food for the game will help them to grow the meat that will feed you with their protein....again...there is something locally harvestable if you leave your hunting stand empty handed.

    I went hunting with some friends in N. Cal, and we brought some pails, thinking we'd get some wild blackberries while we were at it (N. Cal. is COVERED with wild blackberries!). We found blackberries, alright, but the deer were eating them, and were so busy eating that they didn't notice us. We got 2 bucks at the blackberry plants, plus a few rabbits and a wild turkey we didn't have a permit for. The guys I was with had been hunting for 3 years, and had never had such an easy time of it.

    If the area will support them, I'd suggest blackberries for hunting stands, and cattails to supplement the fishing hole potatoes.

    Only problem with blackberries is that they are incredibly invasive and very hard to clear once established. Granted...they do make good natural fences and can kinda sorta be trained and I imagine they would preserve well....

    Salt is only an attractant in the very early season. by the rut, it is nearly completely ignored. fruit trees (they love oranges), acorns from a white oak are best, (roughly 20 years TIL full growth though) and several other types of mast crop, honeysuckle, persimmons, molasses, nearly anything sweet. clover, beets, ect...;)
