are you replanting a existing plot that is just overgrown or are you planning on clearing a area and planting it?? cause i figure that most deer are used to a overgrown plot being there and it wouldnt hurt to disk and plant.. but i am living proof that if you go out into the woods with a bush hog and tear up the woods the deer will leave the area for a while.crazyfire (10/25/2007)to plant a small plot right now?? i just found a piece to hunt on...and want to "pep" it up a little...is it too late to plant now or worth a shot?
How many deer are on the property you hunt?? ive hunted areas before that had a high deer population and it didnt seem to bother them when clearings were made but the property i hunt in FL doesnt have tons of deer so when i put in my small plot the deer have avoided it like the plague.. like i said before, in my opinion a feeder is the best way to go. i wish i had just left my feeder there without the plot and i would have already had a couple racks to add to my collection. corn might not be the most nutritious way to go but the bucks have already shed their velvet so the racks are as big as they are gonna get this year. so if youre just wanting to have a attractant, my vote is a feeder of some sort. just my .02!!
