If you hunt deer on 200 acres or more of private timber, you probably have several logging roads that crisscross the property. Map out a couple flat road sections that are secluded near the center of your woods and turn them into “clover roads.” Planting 500 to 1,000 yards of open logging road is like putting in a half-acre or one-acre food plot, and with minimal work it’s a no-brainer.

With an ATV or UTV and a weighted drag, ride the roads and break up the soil, then plant them with a proven attractant like Imperial Whitetail Clover.

A couple things to consider. Plant accessible but hidden stretches of roads–deep in your woods, and out of sight of a county road and far from a neighbor’s fence line. Your clover will grow best on a north-south road that receives 3 to 4 hours of sunlight each day. For several years the greens will attract and hold deer on your land.
