I'm a chufa novice.
This a field that me and squeaky planted two weeks ago.
He says it isn't time to spray yet. So I'm waiting for his advice about spray and fertilize.

Right or wrong I like to try and spray any of my plots just before it looks like the weeds are about to take over the crop. If its corn or beans and you spray like that then before a new batch of weeds comes along the crop is tall enough to shade them out. Like I said not sure if that is right or wrong though. I generally do chufas about the same though.

I had a crop of Chufa fail. Is it to late to replant in the southern part of the state?

I don't think so. I believe you'd be good until early Aug.

Why would a fellow that moans and complains like a broken record about not having no turkeys, not having no poults, neighbors done killed them all, “help me state with more regulations!!”............... why go to the trouble of planting and maintaining all that chufa for the coons to eat?

Definitely not too late to plant chufa. I'm in south Montgomery county and we always plant in July. That's normally about the time of year the afternoon thunderstorms start to crank up

The OP. He ain’t got no turkey. Just ask him. Or start a thread about seasons or populations. I can predict what he will post almost word for word.

I've sprayed mine this year 3 weeks after they came up. That was a few days late in some of the fields; weeds had gotten bigger than they should have.

I have never said my neighbors have killed a bunch of turkeys nor have we. We did have 1 gobbler most of last year and 3 hens and 1 Jake, had another gobbler and a hen show up one day but dad killed it. I planted chufas to hopefully increase the population, trapping coons as well but yeah we have seen dramatic decline in the area I hunt compared to 20 years ago. Dramatic decline on really every property I have ever hunted over the last 30 years. Glad to know people have had good success keeping a good population of turkeys! Several on this site beleive chufas and trapping have helped their populations so that's why we are trying it again. Sorry you dont like my posts about what I have seen but what I have seen is very alarming to me and if it hits your area you will be concerned to I hope.

To try to get more turkeys? We also trap coons and hogs, plant millet and sorghum, thin pines, burn pines keep hardwoods, open roads up, plant clover. Just have not found anything that helped get turkeys back yet.

What kind of acreage are you hunting Ben? Care to share aerials? It's hard for me to fathom anywhere in central al where a landowner is doing what you are doing and not having turkeys

Sure thing, own 1200acres, lease a little beside us and know the neighbors well enough that we have a good idea of what's going on on 2000+ acres. I will try to post some pics. I know of 3 other places that do the same things but on bigger 3000-5000 acres that have gone from loaded with turkeys to hardly having any. I dont personally know anyone that I hint with that has seen increased populations on places they have hunted for 10-20 yrs. This particular piece has been in my family for about 40 years.

Here you go crenshaw. Anything with Black on it is what we own. Also lease the section with no info next to the catfish ponds and own the piece across across the road from the fritz/black section. If you want to see more of it zoomed in or something let me know.

Ben, I would have thought that area was loaded with turkeys. I gotta believe that there are turkeys within drawing range and if you improve your habitat that more will come. Good luck with it.

It's funny how the guy with 1200 acres thinks his place is small because someone else owns 3000-5000 acres laugh

It was loaded with them 20 years ago. Steady decline to where we dont even see tracks most of the year now. Had the largest group of hens we have seen in 10 years there last winter come through for a few weeks so hopefully they had babies and will begin to re populate.

No sir I did not say 1200 was small I said 3000-5000 was large
The best turkey hunting we ever had was on a spot that was 260. It would hold 10 gobblers a spring on average but even with chufas planted they all disappeared on that piece as well so we eventually sold it
