Where to Put Food Plots: Advice to a Tennessee Hunter

A Tennessee deer hunter has a property he’s looking to improve for better deer hunting. Grant meets with him to review the property and share tips and ideas for improving the habitat. This video starts with Grand sharing basic tools of using a map to track the land that has been scouted for deer sign and habitat features. Next he addresses deer behavior and the ability to hunt certain areas and how they affect food plot placement, removing cedars for better native browse, what to do with the stand of Virginia Pines, the questions and considerations for marketing the timber, benefits of no-till farming for the area, recommendations for the valleys, hunting tips and strategies, deer travel patterns, and finally – the priority order for the different projects.
