    Deer Food Plots in Seven Easy Steps

    Your step-by-step guide to maximize your food plot's potential

    Story and video by Antler King

    Planting food plots is the single most effective way of attracting, growing, and keeping deer on your property. When thinking about what and where to plant, you should strive to plant between five and ten percent of your total acreage with as much variety in plant species as possible. Also strive to have a spring, summer, fall, and winter food source on your property to keep your herd coming to your property year round.

    Although 5-10% of your property in food plots should be your goal, keep in mind that any amount of land you set aside for food plots will have a positive impact on your deer herd.

    Whether you have been planting for years or it is your first time, following these seven easy steps will ensure that you maximize your food plot potential.

    Supplemental Deer Feed & Nutritional Guide

    Many landowners and hunters consider supplemental feeding an important factor in deer management and a source of nutrition when native forage is inadequate either in quantity or quality. Under certain conditions a supplemental feeding program can help; however, most deer feeding programs which provide sufficient additional nutrients to be of value, are expensive.

    There is a distinct difference between feeding and baiting deer. Maintaining deer feeders from October through December is a common practice on many ranches to attract deer to hunting blinds during the hunting season. Unfortunately most of these baiting efforts cease just before additional feed is really needed by the deer. Supplemental feeding should be done during stress periods and then only under specific conditions. Stress periods for deer are usually encountered when the protein content of the forage is at a low level during severe winters, dry springs and dry summers.

    Supplemental feeding of deer is expensive, and unless properly done, it is of little or no benefit to the deer. The most efficient means of insuring adequate nutrition is through a good range management program that provides sufficient cover and a variety of plants as well as forbs. This is done by reducing deer numbers and domestic livestock numbers to levels that allow the range to recover and remain in good condition. A common mistake made by many landowners attempting to develop a range management plan is to disregard the number of animal units of deer present when calculating use of the range. If deer are present, they are utilizing available forage and must be considered as part of the stocking rate. If large numbers of deer are desired, domestic livestock must be reduced to prevent damage to the range. Under good range conditions, deer and cattle do not compete for food; however, deer, sheep and goats are in direct competition for the available food supply. When a range is in poor condition deer and cattle will compete for forb and browse plants.

    Supplemental feeding of deer may be beneficial if the herd is harvested adequately each year and the range is in good condition. Only under closely controlled conditions will supplemental feeding benefit growth rate of body and antlers. The benefits of a supplemental feeding program may be more quickly realized when feeding is done within deer-proof fenced areas that permit the landowner to closely control deer numbers.
    Most supplemental feeding programs have advantages as well as disadvantages. Consider these points when planning a supplemental program for wild deer.

    Effective Deer Management is key to a healthy herd - Tractor Supply Co. Effective Deer Management is key to a healthy herd.

    Deer Management

    Deer management is an effort by various agencies — some state governments, private organizations, landowner cooperatives, individual landowners in some cases, and hunters — to control the numbers and quality of deer herds in any given area.

    The effort involved means providing quality foraging and feed for the deer to supplement what is naturally available if necessary, as well as culling the herds during hunting season to remove weaker members.

    Ideally, that means targeting does to keep the male/female ratio smaller and eliminating older bucks and some of the weaker yearling bucks, while leaving the younger bucks with larger antlers (indicating genetic strength).

    In addition, the agencies work together in order to ensure that the deer population does not grow to the point where herds cause ecological imbalance or encroach on cultivated land intended for sustaining humans, especially food crops. This article is simply an overview of what deer management is and how it is accomplished.
