I have never seen this before.
Watching an episode of "Deer and Deer Hunting" which is one of the few programs I actually pay attention to their advice, I saw something unusual to me.
A buck moving thru a wooded area goes right to a planted plot no bigger than 4' X 4'.
I get the idea but am surprised by 2 things.
How and what could have grown so thick and green in the deep woods?
What could you plant in such a small amount that would attract deer to it?
Anybody have any experience planting these deep woods mini plots?

As far as how thick and green a mini plot gets in the woods would depend on sunlight, soil acidity, and how quickly the plot can establish before the deer get to it. I planted a 10'x10' plot of Throw N Grow about 4 years ago in a mature stand of pines. I put 50 lbs of 13-13-13 on it. I used a garden rake to get to the soil and then put down the seed and fertilizer. Then I worked it all into the ground. I didn't really expect it to come up as good as it did but it really surprised me at how well it came in. I wish I still had pictures of it. Came up as good as any other plot I've planted, seen a lot of deer coming to that mini plot.
