New to forum. I own a smaller farm in SW Ohio. Started deer bow hunting again about 10 years ago. In 2013 I took a 3 ac cattle pasture out of service and planted my 1st food plot. My food plot adjoins a 110 ac horse hay baling operation. There is a lot of brushy areas for deer cover. I see the deer come out of the brush on the neighbors property and walk non stop across the hay field to feed in my food plots. Needless to say I'm a firm believer in the benefits of good food plots. I've taken a doe and 2 bucks a 1o and 12 point with a crossbow. Having MS I not longer can pull a bow back so must hunt with a crossbow. I bought a new Horton reverse limb model since I hunt in a tower most of the time and I would hit the siding with a regular style limbs. In 21 years of owning the farm I never seen over 2 deer in a group. Since 2o13 putting in food plots I have seen 16-20 deer feeding at one time. I put in a 1.5 ac of WTI clover and I rotate the other 1.5 ac in WTI forage oats and turnip-radish mix. For 2018 I plan on a new plot on the west side of the far of about 1 ac. This plot is on a main N-S trail the crosses the road and goes through my over with red cedar trees grown pasture. The nice thing about this trail it's only 100 yds from my house and it's totally brushed in. It'll be a quick evening hunt spot. I don't have a good way of getting out of the 3 ac food plot after dark while deer are feeding during bow hunting so it's a morning hunt area only. For gun season I have a hunting tower to hunt from.
