Hey guys I am looking for a food plot to put in southwest Pa next year. i want one that will attract deer from oct-december. Im plannin on planting some corn right next to it too. What would u guys suggest.
It really depends on your enviornment....key factors..will it have light....will it grow good....does the ground need to be broken up...should I fertilize it.I planted clover where it wouldn't get but a couple hours of light in my woods.I didn't even take a soil sample and its looking good!!
clover is not optimum for the months mentioned.go with oats,winter wheat,brassicas,forage rape.these grow and stay green even under snow.there is a book by ed spinzola,ultimate whitetail food plots.tells you everything you need to know.i think you can get it thru the mid michigan chapter qaulity deer management assc.
First of all, if you haven't gone winter backpacking, it needs to happen in the near future. It puts a very unique twist on the summer version of the activity. Yes, it's cold but it's nothing that being prepared can't remedy. Beyond it's therapeutic and recreational value, I think it is a very good tool for the big game hunter as well. I don't think that you can spend too much time getting to know the ins and outs of the area that you hunt. And there is no better way to gain experience in...
