Rack 1 Field Test – Part 4

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We’ve moved to the next level of Rack 1. It’s the grow phase and we are using Xcellerator. This a supplement you spread on the ground. As per the directions, the Gunwriter Assistant and I cleared the leaves away and roughed up the soil. Then we spread a bag of Xcelerator.

To check deer traffic, we are also using one of Bushnell’s new, very compact, trail cameras; The Trophy Cam. It seemed easy enough to set up and is supposed to run a long time off of eight AA batteries. I’ll post the images it captures over the spot where we spread the Xcellerator, along with a log of visits per day to this spot.

Check back in about two weeks for Rack 1 Field Test Part 5 and a look at the images captured by the Bushnell Trophy Camera.
