Since you asked. I think you should learn to hunt without food plots.

Mule Deer

I have never tried it myself, but i have friends that archery hunt that have tried food plots to no avail. I'm not sure why but the mules here are more apt to be taken at a waterhole rather than at a food plot.

Even that isn't easy. Most will drink at night time.

Mule deer will drink water

Mule deer will drink water where ever they find it and they don't need that much water.  I have seen them drinking out of mud puddles in the middle of the road before they would drink out of the stream 10 yards away.

Once they are pressured they

Once they are pressured they seem to drink at night. When I was young and trying to figure out muley's I watched them come to a water hole during the day pre hunting season. I thought I had it all figured out, but I was only 12 then. Once the season started I never saw deer at that water hole again.

Then I discovered still hunting, and never staked out anything again.
