In February of 2012 I cleared a small quarter acre food plot on a high spot in the center of our swamp. I could see into the plot from a rifle stand a few hundred yards away. I put the plot in for one purpose killing deer in that location. I went in and put a culvert in through the swamp and creek, creating a high path to the plot. when I did it, I stood in it and told my wife, we are gonna shoot some giants in this thing. Little did I know how true that was. Struck again today in it, two straight years, late in rifle season I have harvested mature bucks in the plot as they fed in the early afternoon. today's buck followed a doe and fed into the plot. shot both these bucks within a matter of feet of same spot. I find the keys to these plots are to be able to get in and out clean. I like to bow hunt about fifty yards either coming to the plot of going from. using brush and tree tops is a great way to get them to enter and exit right where you want them to. this is the plot, its 100 yards from the main feeding field, with thick brush between it and the field, the perfect staging spot for a big boy that wants a snack before he hits the main fields after dark. So far it has been hugely successful! the buck in this pic is homeboy, he was a 3.5 yr old buck I passed that fall and my father harvested him 100 yards from this plot up the trail that exits it, know doubt he had fed through the plot just prior to dad shooting him. 2013 buck 3.5 yr old 11 pt, 17 inch inside spread 2014 buck, 4.5 yr old 7pt 19.5 inch inside spread Over all small kill plots can be hugely successful, they are hard work, get pounded hard by deer, but when you walk up on that buck you hunted for 59 days, I will say this, it feels pretty darn good!
