    I have aquired a new hunting spot this past week. It is in a river bottom and is susceptible to seasonal flooding like most river bottoms are. There are two fields inside the woods, one of 7 acres and the other one 9 acres. The smaller fields I plan on planting soybeans in it during the month of may. The other one I want to plant winter rye and oats mixed with clover, rape, and perhaps chicory. My question is what type of clover grows best in this type of enviroment and will chicory survive in a damp enviroment? I have not done a soil test yet, but will. I am looking forward to hunting this spot there are some nice bucks in this area.

    If this field is flooded for 3 to 5 days it will probly kill all of it. If it is just damp u shouldn't have much trouble. Other tha aquatic plants nothing likes it's feet wet for to long.
