For deer hunters in the field, a mix of good camouflage, cleverly disguised tree stands and scent control are all part of the hunt. For those interested in observing, photographing or hunting deer year round, a well-designed food plot can be the perfect device for aiding and holding deer on your land.
In tonight’s episode of Deer & Deer Hunting TV, experts break down how to prepare a food plot’s size, the best shape to use, key points about location, and the plants to consider in your plot to maximize its potential and best serve your needs.
Deer & Deer Hunting TV airs on NBC Sports in primetime on Sundays at 9:30 p.m. Eastern / 8:30 Central, and each Tuesdays at 2 p.m. Eastern / 1 p.m. Central.
