Most food plot seeds come in 1/4 acre or 1 acre bags of seed. I personally can't look at a chunck of land and say with any accuracy how many acres it is. If you also have this problem I found a simple but helpful web site that will calculate the area for you and tell you how many acres it is.

Go to www.ez-calculators.com and scroll down to # 29.

I use a convert program that is similar. I also made a cheat sheet and take it with me if I am planting. It has a couple square acre measurements for reference like:

209 ft x 209 ft = 1 acre
105 ft x 105 ft = 1/4 acre
etc.

this way if my field is 200 ft by 100 ft, I know it is roughly 1/2 acre. You're right, it beats looking and guessing.
