Kentucky Hunting food Plot Description of Grounds

clover food plot

Food Plot Area Descriptions:

  1. Property line area.  Narrow food plot approximately 200 yard long x 45 feet wide.  Good spot for bow hunters with one tree stand near a feeder.  There is also an elevated box blind for both gun and bow hunters, which has view of a larger 1 acre field as well with usually Alfafla, Brassica, or Oats are here.
  2. Long and Narrow, prefered food plot shape, with a clover & alfalfa mix.  Tower blind located to shoot over this plot and plot #3.  Tree stand is also located nearby since this tower blind has narrow windows, so bow hunters should consider the ladders stand.
  3. A nice 200 yard shot from a tower blind.  Ladder stand present as well.   Stripped with a variety of things depending on the season.  Clover, Cereal Rye, Lab Lab, Brassicas.   A good 30 minute walk from the cabin. My Kentucky hunting outfitter pick, although people use the term "outfitter" rather lossely.  I manage deer, plant food plots, lease my land and cabin while working as a school teacher.  There are full-time outfitters that do this for a living and pay bills in doing so.
  4. Tower blind in tree line next to creek that splits 2 food plots that is great for both bow hunters and gun hunters. To the south is a 3 acre food plot that rotates between corn, winter wheat, brassicas, oats, or buck wheat. Stream about 8 feet wide, 2 inches to 4 inches deep depending on rain is next to blind.  There is also a auto corn feeder 40 yards from the blind in a small foot plot usually stripped in 2 varieties.  Also has a glimpse of destination food plot #6.
  5. Small Alfalfa plot next to the creek.  Plenty of trees for bow hunters to place a stand, but no tree stand there.
  6. Destination plot full of different plantings in strips and sections - Brassicas, Alfalfa, Oats/Cereal Rye, Lab Lab (depends on if it's a a summer plot or prepped for kill plots which is done each Fall)  Bow hunters will see deer, you just have to pick a spot.  In the woods to the east are good trees for stands or to the south where a good tree line exists of larger trees.  Tower blind located here.
  7. Same tower blind that is used to #6 hunts this one as well.  Spots for good stand locations are all around this plot.  The stream (usually 2 inches to a foot deep) runs next to this plot.  Stagnant water pond is located here.  1/2 the plot is clover and the other 1/2 is either Canola, Oats or Brassicas.  As I am updating this website, I have described this same spot twice, sorry! However, you get the picture.
  8. Plot located near thick cover with a good treed area for a stand to the north. 
  9. You can’t see plot #8 from here, but deer travel back and forth. Good spots for stands.  Off of 9 run a long narrow strip always planted with something different from Oats, turnips, clover, etc.  2 tree stands present.
  10. Plot is  isolated in the middle of hardwoods.  There is a ground blind located for a shot at this plot about 150 yards away.  Tree stand located here.  Approximate size is 40’ X 250’.  6 foot deep trench X 10 foot goes past this plot.  Many big bucks travel this.  
  11. Very small kill plot in thick cover and thick pines. Longest shot would be 40 yards.  You might not see a lot of deer, but it’s a “safe” spot for the big one to show. Tree stand present.  A blend is usually planted here.
  12. Hardwoods location of the food plot.  An easy 15 minute walk from the cabin. 2 tree stands are located here. The second stand is to get a better long distance shot with a gun in the hardwoods.  You can see out a good 250 yards being on top of a hillside. Clover plot.
  13. Food plot near this cover and hardwood.  I have a slider window to shoot out of the cabin should you be sick or feel like lounging most of the day peaking out of it.  Clover or Alfalfa Plot 
  14. This is a young persinonym orchard of 15+ trees.  It’s just a bulldozed opening in the woods with trees in fencing as well as being planted with Chufas for turkey.  This is a "turkey only" plot that I would not even use.  It's too small with trees only 10 years old. 

Ignore the descriptions of what was planted.  They are rotated based on many different considerations.
