What can you plant in the woods to attract deer?

What is deer’s favorite food?
Food they absolutely love are: pecans, hickory nuts, beechnut acorns, as well as acorns. Fruits such as apples, blueberries, blackberries, and persimmons are also appealing to deer and satisfy their appetites.
How deep should a food plot be?
A good rule of thumb is, “ the seed diameter times three”, gives you your planting depth. If you are planting a ¼ inch thick pea or bean seed, it needs to get about an inch into the ground. Tiny seeds like clovers are designed to lay on or near the surface.
When should I plant a food plot for deer?
The end of July and early August is arguably the best time of the year to plant a food plot. Weeds will be dying, moisture will be on the increase and food plotting practitioners have plenty of months to prepare their next great food plot planting.
What food plot will grow in the woods?
The clear choice for many is white clover. With the ability to sprawl, grow great in shade, and take a beating from browsing deer, clover makes the ideal species for food plots in the woods.
How do farmers keep deer away?
Fencing, the construction of a barrier between the crop and the deer, is the most effective long-term solution to deer damage. The basics of fencing apply to both electric and non-electric fencing. Once deer have gotten inside and discovered the crop, it will be harder to keep them out, even with an electric fence.
Should I fence my food plot?
To be most effective, the electric fence should be erected the day following the planting of the food plot. This gives the crop time to emerge and get growing without deer feeding on it the first critical days the plants are trying to get a start. The fencing will only work correctly if it is put up correctly.
