Michigan Food Plot Services

Food plots are the LEGAL and LOGICAL alternative to baiting.  In the long run a well maintained food plot is cheaper than a supplemental feeding program.  A food plot has the potential to literally provide tons of forage per acre, that forage is also a much higher quality than any you can spread on the ground.  Corn and soybeans in the surrounding fields provide 20% (corn) - 30% (soybeans), protein, a quality food plot can reach near                   50% PROTEIN!!!.  If you don’t think the wildlife can tell the difference, think again!  You will be amazed at the masses of deer and other animals that frequent your plots.  Food plots are also safer for the animals in the prevention of disease and starvation.  Food plots create permanent travel patterns which makes patterning your deer much easier, as opposed to bait piles that only temporarily redirect animals.  How many times have you had a mature buck (3.5 yrs old +) walk in and start eating from your bait pile during daylight hours?  More than likely you haven't in Michigan.  The older deer become, the better they get at avoiding humans.  Food plots solve that problem.  When properly designed, food plots can give you an all day deer parade, including mature bucks!

After we come out to look at your land we will work with you to put together a plan that's best suited for your piece of property.  If less work is required to prepare the plot location we can drastically reduce the cost of our services.
