Default i need ideas for food plot or supplement feeding ideas in south texas

im on 252 acres with 1 other person, the owner ,lives on the property and has nateral clover every where. doesnt feed protein though. he buys all the corn and takes care of itamd feeders. but ,said i could put out a food plot if wanted to. dont know what to put or when. its in san saba,rx (by brady,richland springs). he manages the deer and turkey and the deer are big. i just want to keep them moreto my area and feed them better. i thought about (biologics hot-spot when its closer to bow season,) but what can i plant now and in between. maybee lab lab etc... or something i dont have a disk though. my email is [email protected]. see post in outfitters if anyone is looking for a annual lease he is looking for one more

If you've got natural clover and the deer are healthy, just put out some fertilizer with some phosphorus. Planting a food plot when you've got decent natural forage production isn't an efficient use of time and resources (read: $$$).

Black-eyed peas will work if you've got the soil and the equipment.

I'm outside of Coleman about an hour northwest of you. I have been planting a summer protein plot for the last 2 summers. The only thing I can get to successfully grow out there is iron and clay cowpeas. The are very high in protein and will draw all kinds of deer to you. I also feed protein pellets. No matter what the natural vegetation is, it would be advantageous to you to supplementally feed. However, it is a little late to plant this year but you might get them to come up. The only thing is you've already missed a lot of rain but it's up to you. I get my seed from Turner Seed. You can look at their website and call to order and have the seed shipped to the landowner. Regardless of if you plant, I would put some protein out as soon as you can. You will be very surprised at the results. It takes about 3 years to really see the results of feeding protein. Good luck on the upcoming season!
