F&W Media designer Dusty Reid took to the D&DH staff food plot yesterday
as part of its inaugural hunt. Amongst the Big
‘n’ Beasty Brassica, he counted 20 deer from his stand 26 feet up on the side
of a hill.
“I mostly saw young ones. One had a nice rack,” Reid said.
Reid reported several young bucks fighting in the plot. He said he held out in hopes
the noise would attract a more mature buck. That did not happen. Although he came
back back empty-handed, Reid said he did not feel disappointed.
“It was really satisfying to see that many deer on a food plot we worked hard on all
summer,” he said.
Reid snapped several images of the deer with his cell phone. The resolution was not
high enough to post here.
“Take my word for it,” Reid said. “It’s going to be a great season.”
