All. Getting ready to start my next plot and have a blank canvas on the shape to design it. Would love to see pictures of your favorite plots/shape designs.
2 questions...Access in and out, location, and wind is all done. Just trying to get some visual ideas on designed. For example, should I have a finger sticking out into the plot. Was leaning towards an L shape.
Crossbow or Rifle. It will take a few years to build the soil but mostly clover, brassicas, and cereal grains.2 questions...
What is your primary weapon for hunting the plot?
What are you planning on planting in the plot?
I like as close to a perfect rectangle as possible. I design for ease of tractor work. Seems topo, etc always screw up my plans, but that’s my preference
I actually like round or oval. Dont have to turn around on equipment much until you get down to a small circle in the middle. Dont have to lift equipment as muchThis is 100% how I feel. Planting odd shaped food plots sucks.
With a crossbow and what you plan on planting....I think you have a lot of options to choose from. I would suggest anything where you can either put a stand where you want it...or have your plot lead past a particular location. The plants you are planting will do fine in non-ideal sunlight situations so you can have the narrower plot configurations. If you was wanting corn or beans for rifle hunting...then I would suggest more square/rectangular type plots...because they need the sunlight AND you would have the range with a firearm to cover an acre or so plot. I would suggest you look at the site and see what "feels" right. Look at what trees may have to be removed and what you can do to improve the cover around the future plot. There may be some things in there you may want to work around/with and that may point you in one direction or the other. You can still go with a square type plot, but you then may be better off X-bow hunting the trails leading to/from with a gun stand watching over the plot itself... If you got a blank slate...it's all a matter of what is there and what you want to do.Crossbow or Rifle. It will take a few years to build the soil but mostly clover, brassicas, and cereal grains.
