Food plots are the only forage grown specifically to feed deer. Sure, whitetails will eat farmers’ crops, fruits in orchards, or the vegetables out of your wifes garden. Food plots are parcels of ground we plant with forages and grains to draw in deer.
Besides attracting deer, food plots planted with the best seeds offer protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and energy to whitetails–nutrition that means healthier does and bucks with bigger racks! The activity is also an absorbing pastime in itself-preparing the ground, planting, and watching the tiny seed you sowed grow into large plants that will nourish deer and entice them to stay on your land. And with the popularity of food plotting today, chances are if you don’t offer a quality plot grown with the best seed available, your neighbor will. And that’s where the deer will go!
