TRIED TO PLANT SOME FOOD PLOTS MYSELF THIS YEAR. I HAVE A LOT TO LEARN. BUT I DID FIND OUT THAT IF YOU PLANT ON LOGGING ROADS,THE ROADS NEED TO BE RUNNING NORTH AND SOUTH FOR THE SUN. MINE RAN EAST AND WEST-NO GOOD.

Get a chainsaw and let Mother Nature do it for you. If you are totally woods Its hard to beat the natural stuff ie. greenbriar and honeysuckle. All you need is some sunshine. IMO you would need at least a 1/4 to 1/2 of an acre to have a foodplot that would survive the onslaught of browsing depending on how many deer you have.
