Preparing Food Plot For Hunting Trophy Whitetail

Anyone who can reach the specific areas that are meant for private hunting can indulge into trophy whitetail hunting or trophy elk hunting. Both whitetail and elks are rare species of deer that fall prey to many hunters across the areas where they are found. One common technique for hunting or even fishing is luring the animal or fish with food. Thus, using food plots is considered among the common practices for hunting whitetails. Food plot is a type of crop that deer like to eat, but this doesn’t mean that it is easy to trap deer without proper experience. There are vital steps that are required to be carried out regarding agricultural attributes of food plot and that include proper planning and hard labor. Only adequate arrangements can result in trophy whitetail hunts. Trophy hunting requires special clothing and equipment such as bow and arrow or rifles. It is best to have camouflage clothing to blend in with the foliage.

In the first step of planning, you need to find out the right area where you can site the food plot. Locations close to water or where deer takes rest are definitely good choices. Usual places where deer finds food is not a bad option either. It is not enough to plant only one food plot, try planting more so that deer can get maximum dietary according to seasonal variety. You have to think about the convenient places where whitetail deer can come around.

Now, you have to consider about putting the food plot in order. There should not be any bushes in the plot and hence it is your first responsibility to clean up the shrubs, if any. Remember that the food plot can get affected by weeds and hence you need to make use of right herbicide, but do check its toxicity level. Now, you have to cut foliage and let it get dry.

Now, you have to deal with the planting process of the food plot. Get a seed drill and get prepared to cut the sod. You can also use a disc for the purpose. The sod must be untied properly by repeatedly crossing the plot. After that, it is now the time for plowing and here you will get good help from the untied sods. After plowing properly, the reversed sod and furrows are to be left for drying for seven day minimum. After a week, again you have to cut, but now, only the dried sod. After cutting, properly level the plot.

Finally, it is the time for planting food plots for deer. Crops, grass seed, clovers, rye, etc are some of favorites of deer. Spread the seed thoroughly with hand or by using spreader. After spreading the sees, cover them just a little bit so that deer gets a natural feeling. Best time to sow the food plots is spring and winter as they grow up as juicy greens that whitetails love.

This is one of the best techniques to deal with, before the hunting season arrives.

Leveraging The Interest in Food to Boost Your Retail Business

Food is hot right now thanks to successful TV shows and spin off cookbooks and magazines. Right around the world, people are watching food television shows in record numbers.

This extraordinary interest in food can be leveraged by any retailer to drive shopper traffic and sales, regardless of the products offered by the store.

It is easy to connect just about any category of products back to food. Here are some ideas based on different retail store categories:

Newsstand. Create a dining table display with a selection of food titles. This will guide customers to buy multiple titles at once. The display ought to look like a real table setting – maybe replicate an image from in one of the magazines.

Cards and stationery. Food in this space is all about creating a wonderful experience from the invitations to the place settings to the menu. Show how the products you sell can enhance the invited in-home food dining experience. With simple stationery items you have a wonderful opportunity to show how to deliver an exceptional food experience in the home.

Gifts. Seek out products on your shelves which could work as gifts for the host, gifts for diners or be used in some other way to enhance the dining experience. Show how the products work with an in-context stunning visual display.

Homewares. This is easy. Create the dining experience in-store with a beautiful table setting, a busy kitchen setting or even a simple small place setting with each display showing how your products enhance the in-home foodie experience. It is vitally important to show how your products work.

Fashion. The options here are endless. Consider a series of displays over weeks of showing how people can dress for different food occasions from the clothing you sell. From a foodie picnic through to a formal dinner – depending on the types of clothes you sell. Give the series a name, the foodie dining series, something catching which speaks to your target customers.

Hair and Nail Salon. Create a window display showing a dining setting using mannequins and arrows pointing to how styling from you can enhance the experience for the hosts and guests. The goal with such a display is to make it look different to what people would expect in a nail or hair salon – this will draw their attention.

Outdoors. Recreate an outdoor foodie experience in your store and get your customers wanting to buy your products to recreate this at home. This is an excellent opportunity to have cooking days where you take the static display and turn it into something tasty and enticing.

Baby. Babies attend all sorts of events from birthdays to family gatherings to special occasions like baptisms – where each has a food opportunity. Consider creating a display for a baby party showing off what to wear for these occasions.

Hardware. People working at home or elsewhere and using hardware lines like hammers, power tools, timber and the like work up a real appetite. Consider a themed display of food for the hard workers. Maybe even connect with a local cafe or restaurant.

While each of these ideas is about how to create something which is visually enticing and stunning, retailers could easily take them further and create special events offering food to further showcase the opportunities.

There are many ways you can connect the worldwide interest in food back with your retail store. Right now the opportunity is considerable. Go out, have fun and help your customers have fun too.

The Cadaverous Beasts of SSARG [Chapter 6: To the Valley of Arrows]

Chapter 6

To the Valley of Arrows

Arallets found herself-daydreaming in the afternoon sun, still high in the branches of a great tree, overlooking the terrain below, slightly opened eyed; curious she was to insure there were no beasts about. She had fallen asleep on his shoulder, and had just awoken but a few minutes ago, awoken to find herself on Tangor’s shoulder, half asleep, when she found herself in this position, she quickly turned away from him, moved backwards, she liked his muscular shoulder but she was still offended from before, his remark. Perhaps she was not good enough for him, was a thought in her mind, a thought, she thought might be circulating in his mind also.

She had had six hours sleep, days were long here, 72-hours to a day, and six hours to a night, total 72-hours. Sleep that was much needed.

Tangor knew Moirommalit’s were well known for their flat facial affects, there hardness of heart, and unemoitonalness, but she was not of that type, she must have had an ounce of her father’s blood in her. He was thinking it was King Ahta’s blood, but of course he did not know.

At this stage of his journey, Tangor simply wanted to get as far away as he could from the rats, and hopefully back to his ship before the vipers destroyed it.

Tangor, said to Arallets, with an explicit tone to his voice: “I’m very hungry for real food, protean, not all this papaya crap, I got it up to my nose, how about some of that Lomo Saltado, I had once in Peru, on earth, good rice with potatoes, and onions, and big hunks of soft choice beef.”

Arallets, knew Tangor had a good sense of direction, his instincts were excellent, he had traveled the universe over, and now her sassiness, or better put, over sense of worth in a world that cared less for her, was diminishing, and she appreciated Him. Just like arriving at the edge of the woods, Tangor knew if they continued going eastward they would eventually be at the woods end. As now they had arrived, and it was morning, Arallets saw Tangor looking about, for the umpteenth time, and then he said, “Let go!”

In The Valley of Arrows
[The Plains]

It was a considerable distance they had gone, perhaps a few hundred miles if not more in the tree world; now standing on solid ground felt good to both of them.

There was a valley in front of them, evidently they had gone quite far to the east and then shifted somehow west, for according to the map, it was the plains in front of them. And Tangor remembered in the plains was the Valley of Arrows Siren had told him about it. Now he got deliberating where or which way he was to go from here. If he went straight north, he’d be in the Bear Country, if he went northwest, he’d be in King Ahta’s domain; if he went northeast, he’d be in the heart of the Manticore valleys and rocky plains: matter-of-fact, they were closer at this point to that area than any other area. Should they go west, they’d circle around the woods and end up by the mound area again, where the Viper’s Fortress was, where they started from, and beyond that Viper Country, where his spaceship was, but circling around involved sticking close to the woods, and that was loaded with searching rats for them at the moment. His decision to be made had a lot of variables to it.

How he missed his ship! Ever since he was a kid he wanted to be a space traveler, adventurer, and have his own ship, and now he had one, had it for a very long time also, and here he was stuck on this savage and primitive planet, which his ship in the possession of some mad vipers, were ready to destroy it.

They walked a ways, collecting their thoughts, and found themselves–like it or not–in the Valley of Arrows, part of the central plains of the Planet, where it seemed every other section of the planet connect to or from–in one way or another. That is to say, if one wanted to get to another areas of the planet, they normally would have to cross this land, or perhaps go through the dark part of the planet, and that would not be prudent, for no one had–yet.

It was to Tangor, a mysterious planet, just as Siren had told him it would be, had he ever a notion to visit it. An unnatural planet to say the least, where the beasts had reason, and vocabulary, and red crystal eyes, and walked light on the ground, and was controlled somehow, by it sections. Meaning, the rats, vipers, bears, Manticore, and so forth, all stayed in their birth regions, which seemed to be the only real habitual place for them–in the long run. It was once challenged by the Mantic ore’s, to live in the Mound area with Siren the Great, only to find out, the air, or whatever it was, made them ill to the point of death, and quickly had to move back to their abode in the northeast region of the planet. And once the bears were chasing Siren, but would not leave their mesas, and thus, Siren escaped. Should they have I wonder what, but they of course did not, would not, dare not to.

“We shall stop here,” said Tangor.

Getting into shape oftentimes mean that you have to cut down on foods…that you have to starve. However, there are some types of foods that you can eat all you want, but would still not pose any risk to your health. These are the foods that burn fat.

Oatmeal – Packed with soluble fiber, oatmeal is probably the best at busting your tires around your belly. Oatmeal does great wonders to the digestive system. One serving satiates really well, and can in fact, help rid your digestive system off its nasty acids. Oatmeal is also known for lowering bad cholesterol levels.

Avocado – True, avocado is packed with fats, but the right sorts of fat that you want in your body – the fatty acids. It also provides a healthy dose of dietary fiber.

Cayenne pepper – Granted, you can eat a teaspoon of cayenne pepper every day, you can probably lose several pounds in no time. It has excellent thermodynamic properties, which can trigger your body to burn energy even while you’re not doing anything.

Lean meat – If you want to burn fat easily, you have to go for foods that can help build your muscles. These have loads of amino acids that are the building blocks of any muscle tissue.

Citrus fruits – Citrus fruits are, in general, efficient in triggering metabolism. These have potent Vitamin C that can dilute fat easily.

Garlic – You don’t have to look farther than your own kitchen if you want to have a food that can help you burn calories. Garlic has natural properties that can trigger weight loss by encouraging the uptake of thermogenesis of the body.

Apples – Here’s the arrow: apples are good fat burners because of pectin, a nutrient that limits fat absorption while increasing the absorption of water substances at cellular level.
