It looks like it may finally rain over the area this weekend. It has been about three months since we’ve had measurable rain in much of our region. Many deer hunters who are usually busy planting food plots for wildlife have the seeds in a sack in the garage.

It’s just been too dry to plant. A good rain will help food plots finally take hold. And that will help with deer hunting success later in the season. Food plots also provide necessary nourishment to keep deer herds thriving and healthy. If you haven’t been able to plant, now may be the time.

A couple of inches of rain will turn concrete like ground into plantable areas. Here’s hoping the drought is about to end. While planting, or re-planting food plots now won’t grow food in time for the first part of the season, a good winter food plot might be the key to drawing in that good deer in the later parts of this season. It’s sure worth a try.

There are lots of different types of food plots that work. Check with one of our staff at the store, tell us where you hunt and we will be glad to help you with your decision.

Stay safe.
