Kentucky Hunting food Plot Description of Grounds
Food Plot Area Descriptions:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Small Alfalfa plot next to the creek. Plenty of trees for bow hunters to place a stand, but no tree stand there.
- 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.
- 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.
- Plot located near thick cover with a good treed area for a stand to the north.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
