Food plots don’t have to be complicated or expensive.
When deer hunting experts talk about planting food plots, the discussion often tends to focus on doing major projects that can cost thousands and thousands of dollars. But you don’t necessarily have to spend a ton of time and money to improve the quality of hunting on your property. With that in mind, consider this article from the Outdoor Life website.
Basically, it says that a small, simple food plot can be extremely effective, and that many of the same food plot planting concepts hold true whether you’re going big or small.
This is helpful advice as you get out this fall. See the results of your efforts for this season and think ahead. Remember that there is always something you can do to improve a property: How much you decide to do just depends on assessing the property’s potential and determining what resources you want to put towards the effort.
What and how you plant will vary depending on what part of the country you are in, of course, and you should consider factors like rainfall and availability of sunlight as you make your plans. And depending on where your property is located, there may be land-use regulations that need to be followed.
