grnhd, IF you disked up the 4 acres behind your house and sowed in with a appropriate rates for wildlife food plot purposes....that is legal, and can be hunted. Guys there is a WIDE window allowed by the USF&WS when it comes to this issue, but there are limits & regulations you have to follow...typed out in black and white. IF you can't read that stuff and figure it out for yourself....it is better you stay safe rather the sorry. What I have mentioned has been done TIME & TIME again, check by wardens TIME & TIME again, and as long as you don't get stupid and sow 5-6bu/ac or sow it 2 or 3 times....you will not be ticketed for it IN ARKANSAS because it IS a normal ag. practice for the area....such may NOT be in your area that is for you to know.
