I usually rake or use a blower and clean mine out.

I used to, when I had food plots, leaf blow them when I would leaf blow my access trails. Leaf blowers are a common thing where I hunt so the deer don't think too much about it

I think it is best to blow them out if you can ryan01. Leaves will "smother" your forage. If you can remove them after leaf fall you can keep from having to replant perennials every year.
