i've been hunting a buddies property here in town for the last couple years and we're looking to plant a food plot this spring or fall. it's a little over an acre in size, bordered by a road, two drives and the house. I'd like to give the deer some cover/protection from the road as they are very nocturnal in the area. was thinking about planting a row or two of pines along the roadside, what do you think about this? The field was planted with grass several years ago but nothing has been done to it for awhile. It appears to have pretty good soil, i still need to get it tested. Does anyone have some recommendations as to what to plant? we don't want to break the bank but are willing to spend some money and a lot of time to make this successful. We've also thrown around the idea of planting a few apple trees, any opinions on this? We have a disc and rototiller to work with. The primary purpose of this is to draw and hold deer. I've attached an aerial of the property. Thanks for any help/suggestions guys!
