Video Proof Why Small Food Plots Are Better Than Big Food Plots
Over the last nine months you have heard Jake, Randy and I talk about small food plots working better than big food plots.
This seems to be counter-intuitive because in today’s culture, bigger is always promoted as being better.
Biggie Fries, Big Gulps, Super Size, Quadruple Decker Cheeseburgers…..that’s right….I’ve seen them.
Have you ever seen an over-weight deer? Neither have I.
They are dainty browsers who only eat what they need. But this is not why small food plots are better than big food plots.
I know, we have a tendency to think big plots will attract more deer like we see on TV with 30+ deer feeding in a big plot.
But chances are if you’re reading this, you’re not in one of those areas where TV hunting shows are filmed. You’re in areas with lots of hunting pressure.
Some hunters may think that deer in high pressure areas don’t like big plots during daylight hours because of the danger from predators like us hunters.
That may be true, but it’s not the only reason.
As you’ll see in the video below, does do not like bucks pestering them or their young. So if all you have are big wide open food plots, it is difficult for does and their young to feed without being hassled by frisky bucks in the Fall.
I hope this video generates a few “Aha” moments for hunters not only in high pressure areas, but also hunters in the land of giant food plots and big bucks.
