food plot questions

The area in red is the area I am focusing on. It is about 12 acres. The green shapes surround the areas that have been cleared and I am planting. The blue circles are water sources that always have water.

I have already planted white clover and some fruit trees. I am wanting more perennials in hopes of keeping deer and turkey there.

I am planting on alfalfa and chicory. I will plant turnips, onions, wheat, buck wheat in the fall but looking for other options to include in my plan.

You must be retired as that sounds like fun. I wish I had the time and the land...

Also, a friend of mine grows food on his property just for the deer.

Just make sure no equines can get to the area where you have the buckwheat... it's poisonous to them.

There are mostly woods and fields for grazing cows. People have food plots around the area, usually wheat. I usually plant one using wheat, I have had up to 5 deer on it. They always seem to disapear when hunting season starts. I want some that keeps deer and turkey coming back year round.

It would seem once established that your overall plan should accomplish that. As long as they feel secure and have low hunting pressure in theory they should stick around. I would set up some trail cams in the areas to gain insight on travel routes and productivity before and after the planting.

Deer round here love soybeans and corn. Acorns are always good to have around too.
