From www.Growingdeer.tv: Whitetail Habitat Management Tips For More Nutrition: Less Food Plot Pressure: For those of us that don't hunt near row crop fields, food plots are a great tool to allow bucks to express their full antler growth potential. Sometimes the topography, leases, etc., limit the amount of food plots that can be created. This week I describe some techniques to reduce the browse pressure on food plots while providing quality food for deer.

what is the name of those single protein feeders???
It was a long time dream of ours to have our own property to hunt on! God finally put it all together for us and we have been blessed. We call our place "The Proving Grounds" because if you can do grow and hunt big deer here on this rocky Ozark soil you can do it any where else in the nation! The Proving Grounds is approx. 1500 acres but only about 900 is seriously managed for whitetails. Thanks for watching GrowingDeer.tv.
It’s tough to beat soybeans as a summer forage anywhere. They are drought resistant, easy to control weeds, and provide great food for deer and deer are very attracted to them! I like a mix of wheat, brassicas, and radishes for plots to be planted during the fall. This mix should be planted 45-60 days before the first frost is expected.

Very informative. How large is the property you maintain and hunt on? I hope to have some land to myself one day too. 
The number or years to improve a deer herd depends on the current condition of the herd and habitat, and how aggressive the plan it to generate improvements. For example, if there are very few mature bucks, it takes 5 seasons to get 4 1/2 year old bucks. If the habitat is low quality, it may take a few years to improve the habitat before healthy fawns can will be born and then 4 years for them to mature. That was the case at my place.
