food plots
I usually use the no plow version since my shooting lanes are narrow and I have had lots of success in the number of deer seen.

Clover
I have used the clover for several years. The biggest problem is that the deer eat it to the ground as soon as it sprouts. This allows weeds to pop through. When they have another good food, like a strong acorn crop they seem to let it get a little thicker before they destroy it. If you have a way to keep them out of the plot for about a month you should be good to go!!

I have been planting it for years. I find it to be one of the best. I use it and winter peas. I see more deer in the plots feeding now, than i ever did planting all the game mixes.

What's good to plant somewhere that may hold water at certian times of the year? Some of my stand locations are dry now, but sometimes in the winter it may hold 5 or 6 inches of water

Jap. Millet
Swamp,

I have planted Japanese Millet alot in some of the duck holes that I hunt. The deer hit it pretty hard when it comes up. It does reseed itself after being flooded for several months and will do so for several years. Only drawback is it is about $24.00 for a 50 lb. bag.
