I couldn’t resist taking some holiday time to find a new spot for a fall food plot (Plot 3). After some searching I picked a spot between a known bedding area and agricultural fields, this spot also has some other bonuses, acorns and a mess of sticker bushes. I cleared out a 20ft by 15ft spot with a rake and marked the trees I need to remove and took a soil sample and used a weed eater to forge a path back to my other food plots. While waiting for my soil sample results I returned to the site of my next food plot and removed the trees I had previously marked and I was pleased to see the bare ground I cleared filled with large deer tracks. I had a suspicion this was an area used by a bachelor group of bucks. I looked around pretty well and didn’t see any small tracks which leads me to believe that the young doe and the adult doe with fawns are on the other side of the wood lot. At least now I have a good idea od where my deer are at so I can focus on their needs and can start to condition them to other supplements while my food plots are growing. I should have my soil sample results on Monday June 4th, I’ll continue this when I get my soil sample results via email.
