OK, I have access to hunt on 110 acres that belongs to a friend. He has also allowed a cattleman to graze this land for a fee. So there are about 50 head on the land. This piece of land has good timber and is PACKED w/ deer. My friend was intersted in putting in a food plot. I told him that I would help him with that project for him allowing me to hunt (I tried to pay him and he wouldn't take it). The question is, can you successfully place a food plot on land that has grazing cattle? My thought was to place a perimeter fence with 2 strands of barbed wire, hoping to keep the cattle out but let the deer in. Is this a good idea? I don't know if the cows will just trample the fence to get to the forage, or if the fence will deter the deer. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!!!! MDT Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
