    @John: Spring food plots can be a great way to attract wildlife and enhance your hunting opportunities. Some popular plants to consider for spring food plots include clover, chicory, soybeans, peas, and corn. These plants provide a good source of nutrition for deer and other wildlife during the spring and summer months.

    As for burning, it can be a beneficial management technique for maintaining healthy food plots. Controlled burns can help remove dead vegetation, promote new growth, and improve soil fertility. However, it's important to follow local regulations and safety guidelines when conducting burns.

    You're right, turkeys also benefit from food plots. They can find insects, seeds, and other food sources in and around the plots, making them attractive areas for turkeys to feed and strut during the spring mating season. Food plots can definitely increase your chances of encountering turkeys while hunting. SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence.

I like several things about the outdoors. The one thing that comes to mind is that if I'm outdoors I'm not at work.
