By planting food plots you are providing shelter and a food source for everything from insects up to the targeted wildlife and even yourself.

Food Plot Success Through Wildlife Management

Successful food plot management is designed to incorporate the maximum use of annual and perennial food sources. Food plots should provide yearly food, shelter, reproductive areas, nursery conditions, etc. They should cover a wide range of uses according to the species.

Each planted food plot should use nearby water sources and native plants that wildlife species prefer. Native plant species are very beneficial and you should be careful when introducing new and foreign species to your locality.

When in doubt, contact your local extension agent as to the suitability of any new species. Remember that an invasive species of plant introduced into your area could have a negative impact on the existing plant life and thus a negative for the wildlife and you!

Deer and other animal food plots are not much different in the planting and care than human food sources (vegetable gardens) are. They generally must be cultivated in some way, seeded whether manually or by machine, fertilized, weeded if necessary, watered if possible, to achieve the maximum benefit expected from the food plot.

There may be some plant species that shouldn't be introduced to your location because of their aggressiveness or unsuitability to the native surroundings. Don’t be afraid to try something new, but ask first. Your county extension agent, online resources for your region, University Agriculture department or www.extension.org.

If you have never planted a food plot in your area you may consider planting annuals first. As annuals die out yearly, perennials can be added through the year when you have established exactly  the extent of wildlife that will use your food plots. Remember, you can actually hurt the food sources available to game in your area if you introduce an aggressive plant species that chokes out the native plants.

Anything from flowers, grasses, forage crops, weeds to berry producing trees and hedges along with grains may be grown to attract different species of wildlife to your area. Many plot growers are learning about the importance of tree planting. Trees that offer fruit, nuts and acorns, attract all kinds of wildlife, including deer, with the advantage of habitat and protection. Check the area that is to be planted for a nearby water supply. Maybe a small pond or swamp area can be developed or can be improved upon. For more information on food plot management visit our Managing Wildlife page.

Planting Food Plots - The Right Equipment And Implements

When it comes to deciding which seed to plant for your particular wildlife food plot things may get a little confusing. This is why we have loads of information under food plot help in our menu as well as a menu of individual seeds that you may wish to browse through.

But the real question is how to plant and maintain your food plots. We offer these simple steps here:*

  1. Always lime and fertilize, because most woodland soils are low in phosphorus and tend to be acidic. A soil test will tell you how much to use, and information on taking soil tests can be obtained from your local County Extension Office here.
  2. Always prepare the soil by plowing, smoothing and firming the seedbed with the proper food plot equipment. Good seed-soil contact is essential for a thick, productive stand.
  3. Broadcast seeding by hand or with a spreader can produce good results if you are careful to cover most seed no deeper than ½ inch and use a log, heavy drag, or culti packer to firm the soil after planting.
  4. Select a site that is long and narrow with curves or bends to provide a sense of safety for wildlife. This is essential for deer and turkey. A rule of thumb is ¼ acre of food plot to 10 acres of habitat.
  5. Avoid drought prone sites such as deep stands or shallow rocky soils. Southwest facing sites are hotter in the summer and tend to dry out faster than bottomland. Plant warm season plots in areas with afternoon shade.  The reverse is generally true for cool season plots.
  6. A minimum of 50% sunshine is essential for a healthy, productive food plot.
  7. Grow something in your food plots year round to provide adequate nutrition for wildlife.
  8. Plowing strips and planting into existing plots is anFood Plot Exclusion Cage excellent way to extend the productivity of the plot and hold wildlife all year long.
  9. You may want to keep a record of each plot which can include planting and fertilizer information and number of animals observed or harvested.
  10. Wire cages placed in the food plots that keep deer and other wildlife from grazing will provide you with valuable information on how productive the varieties are and how much forage is being grazed.
