Default New food plot

I set up 2 plots of iron clay peas,they are 12" tall and there is very little has been eaten, some has already grew back, one off the plots one deer has walked thru eat a little & left. does it take a long time for the deer to find a plot by trails . my 1st effort at this thanks.

I agree with delbert, deer don't have any problems finding food. Welcome to the club.

That's true, spring and early summer provide goodies until things dry up or you live in an area with little natural brouse. I think food plots help deer herds and see no reason not to plant if you have the means.
