I think one of the most important thing you can do to ensure good food plots is to get soil test done for each of them and lime accordingly.
You need to take the time to do soil test if you are serious about growing big bucks and quality deer management.
Spring Food Plots
When you get the right amount of lime on the plots you will be amazed how much better they do. Having good healthy plots can really attract more deer to your property. And the more does that are attracted to your property the better chances are that big bucks will be following those does right onto your property. We have been planting quality plots on our property for several years now and every year the hunting seems to improve for big bucks.
If you are serious about quality deer management there are a number of things you can do to improve your hunting property and in my opinion none improves your quality deer management than good quality plots. Why even waste the time planting them if you are not going to get a soil test and make sure they are done right. You might get lucky and plant your plot somewhere where the PH level is already good for planting plots and doesn’t need any lime, but 9 times out of 10 your soil needs something. So take the time to get those soil samples, you will be so glad that you did when your plots are luscious and beautiful and attracting deer from properties surrounding yours.
