As far as attracting deer to the food plot I find that just plain OATS work very well
As far as growing bigger deer using food plots I am not sure what works best....but the Mossy Oak LabLab looks good....

Good reply ronn, starting with the Whitetail Institute's knowledge and suggestions you can then decide what to do and far you want to invest in $ and effort. Ground preparation,soil ph testing, fertilizer, lime, and weed conrtol its a lot of work. If your interest is just harvest its a lot cheaper and easier to use bag sweet products to draw the deer in. To do it right you will need to have/borrow some decent equipment.
