Notice within my corn food plot I had left a stand of winter wheat I till under. Now brassicas will be planted that emit a serious stench that will hopefully bring the deer to a shootable distane to a nearby elevated box blind for bow hunters; otherwise, it will remain a great gun spot.

Oats / Clover Blend Cereal Rye & Clover Stripped Cowpeas / Buckwheat
Just some food plots I have sprayed and are awaiting a fresh planting come mid August
Left: I left good clover in the middle, but stripped it for the fall kill plots. Right: Sometimes I just feel like clearing more land to increase food plot size. Remember, my operation breaks even; I pay myself maybe $1 per hour. I do this because I enjoy it. The way "work" should be.
Here is a tall section of plots I just tilled under to get more organic material in the soil, which leads to more moisture capabilities. Granted, this was wonderful bedding for the deer!
These 2 photos were taken in the same week. You see how my deer density crushes my soybeans. Now, the ag fields of soybeans, pictures to the right, are my neighbors 2 miles away. Ag land keeps larger quantities of deer nearby.
This plot has has good clover underneath, but the value is in the quality bedding
Starting with the knee-deep brassicas on the left it appears I'm fertilizing. Kentucky hunting just isn't the same with the nice big juicy chicory. Next is another plot of brassicas great for the late kentucky deer hunting season. Then finally a stripped food plot of milo, brassicas and seasoned clover.
*Longterm Alfalfa and Chicory plots are not pictured. Just "fresh" new plots that will likely be replanted for Fall kill plots.
