Attracting deer to your property year-round is the first step to a successful hunting season. Many hunters neglect food plots during the winter months, which allows deer to seek food and shelter in other places. Counteract this behavior by maintaining a food plot that produces a variety of winter plants. Densely covered thickets where deer seek warmth are the perfect place for new plots. Test the soil’s pH and fertility to determine if fertilizer and lime pellets are needed for greater yield. Till soil, plant seeds, then watch as deer make your land their home.
