Hunting season is rapidly approaching, and the anticipation of what this falls encounters will bring is building in whitetail hunters across the nation.
A successful food plot program requires planning, dedication and a knowledge of farming practices. Food plots are a management practice that can be fairly expensive and labor-intensive to implement. There is no “magic mix” or gimmick that provides a quality year-round food source for wildlife. Rather, using food plots to provide supplemental nutrition for deer often requires multiple plantings in appropriate locations combined with effective management of habitat provided by native plant communities. Managing your native browse with some woods work and Giving your mast producing trees a little TLC give you a great advantage from neighboring properties in the area and sets the stage for fall food for whitetails.
