Default question

Ok so i was just thinking about my food plot, i finally got it in the ground and its starting to come up already, but i was just wondering if you could put some of that all purpose miracle grow on it to help it get bigger and grow faster. Its only like a 20 foot square of food plot so its just something to bring the deer in, please tell me what you guys think. Thanks

That'll really make it grow but you had better put a fence around it or the critters will mow it down once it is the tastiest green stuff in the area!

Hate to say it, but a 20' square food plot is extremely small . If you have a larger deer poplation they will strip it in one night. As a summer supplement you would have probably been better off buying a few sacks of fertilizer and hitting some of the natural browse.

20x20 is 400 sq.ft
20 sq.ft is 4x5'

You guys mustnt know this but where i am, Northern Wisconsin, we dont have much deer up here. So im just trying to keep them around my area since theres quite a few hunters around here. I'm not trying to keep the food plot all summer and stuff like that, im gonna plant some more next to it in August. Also i dont have big equipment or fields like you guys do. Like i said we have to many hunters around here and they already got there hands on everything. so im stuck in the woods. But if you guys wanna come do this work you can lol. Cuz where im at you cant get a tractor back there so your stuck with a lil tiny rotitiller that takes 40 hours to do 20 feet.

you might want to buy a 2 gallon pump sprayer, a hand crank broadcaster, plus a bag or two of 12-12-12, a gallon of generic glyphosate, a rake,plus whatever seeds you want to plant. you'd be surprised at how much you can accomplish with the above mentioned things.
