We have three food plots worked up and ready for planting that I am seeking advice on what to plant for deer (this yr) and dove (next year).


Plot one: About an acre in size. This will be for deer strictly, and would like something that will attract deer from youth gun through the end of gun season. I liked what I have read on here about the radishes. Pros and cons of the radishes vs turnips? Should I put something else with them?

Plot two: About a half acre spot that we worked up in a bigger field that has a good clover stand established already.


Plot three: Probably 4-5 acres total. I want to make a dove field for next fall, but also put something in for deer on two edges this fall.

Thanks for suggestions!

Cant go wrong with clover and oats for deer IMO
Ive seen and heard different things about radishes and turnips,sometimes they don't get used much.
I would PM Chaney Lake about making a dove field

Hunter is right ive tried a lot of different crops and deer will walk thru a wheat field to get to my winter oats and winter peas I would add white clover so the deer will have a spring food source and its good for your ground for next year its worked good for me
