It’s time to plant food plots for white-tailed deer as hunting season approaches. Dr. Billy Higginbotham, AgriLife Extension wildlife specialist, Overton, has a food plot combination proven to attract whitetails and keep them hooked through the hunting season and beyond. Higginbotham’s strategy is to establish numerous small plots edged by cover so deer will use them during legal hunting hours. A plot of cowpeas is a good attractor for white-tailed deer. Combination fall plantings of cowpeas, oats and arrowleaf clover provide forage for deer through winter, spring and into summer.
