We've been planting, or should I say playing with food plots for the past 4 years. On our 100 acres we have in order of establishment the:
Hilltop plot - 1/2 acre - ladino clover, red clover, chicory, alfalfa, oats, brassicas mix
Woodlot plot - 1/4 acre - ladino clover, red clover
Alfalfa plot - 1.75 acres - alfalfa, ladino clover, red clover
Hidden plot - 1/4 acre - ladino clover, red clover
Beanfield plot - 2.5 acre - soybeans, corn, forage sorghum
New plot and Back Alley - 1/2 acre - ladino clover, red clover, durana clover, chicory, oats
Dove plot - 1 acre - it screens the beanfield plot - milo, sunflower, egyptian wheat.
We also have about 10 acres planted to NWSG in it's third year. Thanks to the MDC for assisting us with this project. Can't quite say it's the deer magnet the magazines claim, but we see a lot of tracks in the firebreak we have surrounding the field. Have only once jumped a buck beding in the NWSG, but did take a nice 11 pointer during archery season just as he entered the firebreak.
