Food Plot Planning Quick Tip
December is a good month to take an in depth look at the performance and productivity of your food plots and start your food plot planning for next year. Having information written down on the pros and cons of what, when, and where you planted this year can be very helpful in making food plot plans for next fall. This can include making note of deer travel routes to and from the plots, utilization of what you planted and the date, as well as keeping track of your soil samples and how much lime and fertilizer was added this year.
Early winter is also a good opportunity to look at the amount of food available in your plots. If all your plots are already browsed to the ground by mid December, you need to increase the amount of acreage being planted or decrease the number of mouths feeding on them.
