Do you love it when your local wildlife comes to visit your property? Squirrels, rabbits, birds, and deer are wandering around and living their lives. You can become closer to nature and encourage more wildlife with food plots.
Food plots are particular areas of planted land that are set aside to be a food source for wildlife. These food plots usually contain forage grasses, beans, alfalfa, turnip, et cetera. For deer, something they enjoy is chicory.
Chicory is a member of the dandelion family that can be used for many things. It has numerous health benefits for humans and is even used as a coffee substitute. Wildlife also loves it, especially deer.
By creating a food plot on your property, you will encourage wildlife to visit and chow down. If you are attracting them to hunt or if you just want to enjoy nature in your backyard, planting chicory in a food plot will attract deer to wherever you planted it. This guide will tell you all you need to know about planting chicory for deer.
