A first time food plotter may clear and seed a new field, but have difficulty in hunting it because the deer enter the field from all four sides. I thought I'd share some tips on how to narrow down your odds. One trick is to spread your lime and fertilizer heavier around your stand rather than spreading it evenly across the whole field to grow the nicest crops right where you hunt. Another method is to cut and hinge trees around the field perimeter parallel to the edge to create a fence of brush and limbs with gaps where you hunt, which is also often the result when a bulldozer is used to clear land. But by far the best method that works consistently to get deer within range is to clear a finger or strip of land into the woods or brush close to your stand, also considering where the bedding areas are, and seed it with perennial clover. This is almost guaranteed to get deer to enter your field right there. I have strips up to a half acre for this purpose, and they're always consistent in bringing in deer to feed in the evening, creating shooting opportunities, even works well if your blind is in the middle of the field, just put the strip at the closest edge.
