Food plots are beneficial to deer for many reasons. They provide nutrition throughout the year.
These plots often fall into one of two categories: nutritional plots and hunting plots. Nutritional plots are generally large, ranging from 1-5 acres. While hunting plots are smaller, typically less than an acre.
Perennial plots such as alfalfa don’t need to be planted every year. But annual plots, like brassicas, need to be planted yearly.
Deer like to stage in areas just outside of food plots, surveying for danger before entering the plot.
