Now that I have found and bought my frost seed clover and have multiple areas that are very good selections for planting, my next question is how does one choose where to make a food plot so it does the best good and has no negative impacts on how I can hunt the land? About 90% of the 60 acres I can hunt is extremely thick woods with equally thick underbrush that makes creating a food plot in the woods a no go at least for the first year. Basically most of the woods would make for excellent deer bedding area, and I have found and confirmed at least two dedicated doe bedding areas. I do have multiple areas on the west edge of the property that have minimal plant growth that would be very easy to remove and make for very simple and easy to create 1/4-1/2 acre food plots. But as I am completely new to this land I have scouted only for two days I have a decent idea as to the deer movement and habits, but more scouting is needed, so I realize I need to choose wisely where to plant a food plot so as not to create a situation where I can not get into or out of a stand site with out spooking deer on the food plots. So how does one go about choosing a food plot sight so as to insure it does more good than harm to my deer hunting. Considering the nearest farm field is about 1.2-1.3 miles away and all other farm fields are farther than that a food plot or two should be very good at attracting and holding does and does=bucks during the rut. I have good access from all sides of the property so entry and exit is not limited to any one direction. The land is mostly rectangular in shape with the south end narrowing down to about 1/3 the width of the north end. The area was recently visited by about 3-4" of snow and I scouted it for two days. I found rubs new and historical along the entire western edge of the woods, well over 100 total. Also found to large rub clusters each containing over a dozen rubs in under 15 yards. Basically everywhere I looked along the north, west and south edges of the land I found rubs of all sizes every so many yards. Due to the fresh snow I found no scrapes. The east edge is a seems to be a seldom traveled (5 cars in 2 days) county road that I ran out of time before I could scout it. I did find at least 3 VERY FRESH sets of what I believe were mature buck tracks in the less than 48hr old snow considering they were 5-6.5" in length from toe edge to dew claw. Thanks to the snow I got a decent idea on several major deer paths of travel, but not a enough info yet. I saw over 12 deer on the land in 2 days of scouting. As I own a 2wd truck I was very limited due to the conditions as where I could park with out risking getting stuck. Scouting was more involved than I expected so I was able to only choose trail cam sites but I didn't put any up as I didn't wish to risk putting up a trail cam in one spot only to find a better one and have to relocate the cam. Am heading back down weather permitting in six days. Plan on placing all my trail cams and hopefully planting at least one hopefully two frost seed food plots. So any info any one can give me on how to interpret the deer sign to choose the best sights for a food plot would be of great help to me. Thanks again, Arthur.
