Ag fields save food plots

Over the summer, everything is green and lush, with acres of nutrition around every corner. On most properties, deer don’t have to step out of their woodlots to get all the nutrition they can ask for. But for deer living in Carolinas’ prime agriculture country, fields planted in soybeans and peanuts are too tempting. Having these solid food sources available early in deer season can be a food-plotter’s best friend in order to get a fall crop out of the ground without getting pillaged.

Avoid planting mistakes

The spring planting season brings a heightened level of responsibility for the person in charge of producing top-quality, warm-season food plots.
