So I have always wanted to try a food plot, and have with "throw and grow" type blends with zero success..so this year I decided to try a real deal with my father in law's blessing (his property).
It is 30 acres, alot of swamp, with a large field that I have a few stands around...I always see deer here, but they are transient, nothing holds them..no food source so to speak.
I started by picking out two area for the plots by the stands. I used my lawn tractor to mow the tall grass down to create the footprints. That was pretty exciting..LOL
