    Food plots are a great way to get a youth hunter started, I'm always watching deer on my plots. I took a friends 10 year old boy last season. He shot his first deer a nice 7pt 181 lbs, that boy is hooked for sure....

    food plot

    We planted some Winter Greens which is a blend of brassicas. We planted them to help wintering deer it is amazing. Two acres have held deer all winter. There has been as many as 16 to 20 deer at one time in the plot. The deer didn't come into it until the middle of December and they are still feeding on it as we speak. No matter how deep the snow go they just kept pawing it up. There are game cam pictures posted on face book if any of you are interested. Go to Penobscot County Wildlife Conservation Association. We did not plant until approximately the 10th of July. This is not a blend to plant if your intent is to hunt over because the deer didn't feed on it at all until it froze hard. The middle to later part of December they came like crazy. Hope this helps this is just some of my experience.

    Any sugestions what would be the best to plant, so they would be feeding hard on it in november.
    Trying to start a plot for my grandfather, would like to see him get one more Nice buck. I was going to plant turnups but hadnt decided
    What to plant with them for sure yet. I allso would like to plan some of that winter feed,
    Sounds like alot of fun watching them paw it up. I feed thirty deer here at
    My house so that sounds like it would be a good source of
    Winter food for them.
