    I view baiting as corn piles. Created to attract animals in hopes of filling the freezer.

    I view food plots as a way to waste money and feel good about yourself. Thats my experience anyway. I quit putting in food plots for hopes of attracting deer. Now they are put in because it allows a couple days of tractor work and sometimes they look really good.

    Just because you do not agree with my opinion, it does not make me wrong!

    Deer require ~5% (dry weight of food) of their body weight daily year around. They need more during the late summer. For a 100 lb deer that means ~1,800 lbs of feed annually (again, dry weight). That's for 1 deer. A big buck requires more. Are your "food plots" providing that?

    It is not the purpose of a food plot to provide 100% of a deer's nutrition. Or even 50%. That's nature's job.

    If you created a 100-acre food plot they probably still wouldn't get a majority of their intake from it.

    They wouldn't even if they could. That's the difference in a browser vs a grazer.
