It's that time of year, food plot season. Joining me on this episode is Albert Tomechko, founder and president  of Vitalize Seed Company. Albert has spent the last 6 years food plotting and creating his own seed blends. This year he's partnered with Jared Van Hess (Host of the Habitat Podcast) to bring those blends to market. We discuss the development of the blends and the plants within each mix. Vitalize seed is a one two punch. Nitro boost planted in the spring prepares the ground and boosts nutrients for the fall mix that in turn does the same for the spring mix. This system takes advantage of nutrient cycling for better performance of the food plots and promote better soils.  Get out your note pad and be ready to take notes of all of the great information that Albert has to share.    To learn more or keep up with Albert and Vitalize seed check out the links below: https://vitalizeseed.com/ https://www.facebook.com/search/top?q=vitalize%20seed https://www.instagram.com/vitalizeseed/ Facebook Habitat Chat- by Habitat Podcast https://www.facebook.com/groups/539091557051804   To keep up with the podcast or to reach out to the show head on over to any of the links below Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MIHuntingpodcast Instagram: @mihuntingpodcast                   https://www.instagram.com/mihuntingpodcast/ Email: mihunting@mihuntingpodcast.com

It is 4th of July weekend! Time to reflect on the founding of our country and the cost for our freedoms and the opportunities we have for hunting, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors. It has been a busy several weeks. Total archery back in June, which I would encourage everyone if ever given the opportunity to attend make make sure you do so. It is that time of year for habitat projects and food plots.  Get your seed, your fertilizer and get ready to plant. I cover that I will be going with a new seed company for this year. Introducing Vitalize Seed Company, this company has developed what I would say is the best blend for soil health and wildlife forage. You can never to to soon when if come to getting ready for archery season. I discuss the changes I have made to my archery set up to get me an edge this season. Lastly it is the time of year that limited season draw are are announced and It looks like will be heading to South Dakota again this year.

On this week episode we go back into talking arrow setup. I cover the process that I have learned from others that aid me in becoming a better archer. By tuning you arrow to you bow, you give you bow the mechanical advantage that will aid in improving accuracy as well as the efficiency of you bow. The process I use consist of three main steps. They are bare shaft tuning, nock tuning, and vane configuration. I lay out in detail each of these steps that you can follow to try for yourself.    To keep up with the podcast or to reach out to the show head on over to any of the links below Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MIHuntingpodcast Instagram: @mihuntingpodcast                   https://www.instagram.com/mihuntingpodcast/ Twitter: @MI_Hunting              https://twitter.com/MI_Hunting Email: mihunting@mihuntingpodcast.com
