Identifying Your Food Plot Acreage Needs

Tecomate - Consulting and Food Plot Services

I’m often asked by people who want to start a food plot program, “How many acres of food plots do I need and how many plots?” Of course, the answers will depend on your particular situation, but some general guidelines developed from years of research will help you begin figuring out what’s best for you.

Let’s start with the total food plot acreage you need. If just attracting deer is your main goal, planting 2 to 3 percent of your property in food plots will get the job done. But if you want both attraction and nutrition, you’ll need 5 to 8 percent of your property in food plots, depending on how many deer you want to support.

Laying Out Your Food Plots - Part II

Tecomate

Distribution And Size
Ok, you have a handle on the total acreage of food plots needed, but how many plots do you need, what size should they be and where should they go. You can’t really answer any of these questions without giving thought to the others since they’re all related and interdependent. The number of plots depends in part on what size they are, and vice versa. And, in areas with limited tillable land, the distribution of the tillable land and how much of it there is at each site will go along way in determining both the number and size of food plots. Still, there are ways to come to logical decisions.

Laying Out Your Food Plots - Part I

Tecomate - Consulting and Food Plot Services

You like the idea of more and bigger deer on your property, and you’ve become convinced that food plots can help get you there. You’re ready to commit the time and resources necessary to get into an agricultural-based food-source management program, the kind that’ll significantly enhance the nutritional plane of the property, not just attract deer to a field. In short, you’re ready to start “farming for deer” so you can get the most from your land, investment and deer hunting. Now what?

Importance of Nutrition in Summer

image

While the temperature climbs and climbs through the summer and many of our minds are fixated on spending time in the water keeping cool, we often forget about those animals which we hunt each winter.  Summer is one of the toughest times for deer, especially with hot summers and scarce rainfall.  Tough environmental conditions are further complicated by the peaking nutritional requirements by deer in the spring and summer months.  Metabolic rate for deer can double during the spring and summer months.  As is such, deer need to consume more digestible forage and more of it during the summer months.  Deer enjoy the new growth of the spring and summer months, but the production of natural vegetation can always use a little help.  Warm season food plots are a great way to introduce additional food for deer for a reasonable cost.

Setting Goals for An Effective Food Plot Program

Tecomate - Consulting and Food Plot Services

If you want to attract more deer and grow bigger deer on your property you must develop an effective year-round food plot program.  In other words, you will need to grow and maintain a significant amount of high-quality (year-round) food plots that will greatly enhance the nutritional plane on your property.  In short, you must begin “farming for deer” not just planting a few small plots each fall to attract and harvest deer.

In order to get the most out of your property and your investment you must be willing to commit the time, money, and effort necessary to develop and implement such a program.  To do this, you will need to develop a comprehensive deer management plan.  This management plan will address several key management components such as nutritional management, habitat management, herd management, and harvest management.  This overall deer management plan should also include a thorough evaluation of your current resources, goals, and objectives.
