Food plot screens
Food plot screens
Food plot screens are only new on a conscious level, as people have been using them forever, but have only now started planting and planning them. Food plot screens are used for 3 main reasons, and they are as follows:
Food plot entry and exit routes. They hide us from a deers eyes as we move to and from our preferred stand locations. Food plot screens are thick and tall enough to completely mask our movements, leaving us with the key element of surprise when accessing our tree stands and ground blinds.
Food plot security. A food plot screen surrounding our food plot gives an added feeling of security that makes the deer visit them ore often, and during the day. The thick screen with it’s stem density make the deer feel less naked in our plots, and they will visit more during daylight hours.
Food plots screens hide the plots from the neighbors. Poachers, and line sitters abandon areas they can not see deer moving in. By planting food plot screens, we hide our deer from the neighbors, and eliminate the temptation that comes with deer sightings. Out of sight, out of mind.
Food plot screens for access
Food plot screens can easily hide our exit and entry routes to favorite stands. A deer uses it’s eyes, ears and nose to detect danger, and you must defeat all 3 when accessing your tree stands and ground blinds. Food plot screens can help hide you from all 3. Obviously we are hidden from their eyes, but if we spray or till the adjacent path we walk, both the noise we make and the scent we leave behind is greatly diminished. Once the deer pattern your stands sights, the odds become tilted strongly in their favor. Make the right plan, and a food plot screen will help you score a homerun when it comes to keeping your presence unknown, and only then will you enjoy the full potential of your property.
Food plot screens provide security
Food plot screens can turn a night time feeding area into a dynamite daylight spot. Sometimes food plots are located next to areas with a lot of human activity. Roads, trails, cabins, and on and on. Over time the local deer will not visit these areas during daylight hours. If we want to hunt them in these areas, we must screen the areas to separate the deers land from ours. Food plot screens get it done. If you can create a barrier between the human activity and a deers preferred feed, the odds are higher the deer will visit those spots during daylight hours. Access and exit are a no brainer, and you may have a great low impact spot to hunt.
Food plot screens hide deer from the neighbors
No they are not your deer, but at the same time we want to maximize all of our effort and the neighbors dont need in on the game. Food plot screens hide deer activity on your parcel, and if the neighbors are not seeing any activity, its becomes pretty tempting to sit your line. You have put together a comprehensive plan for your parcel. and we do not need the neighbors queering the edges of the property by pressuring deer using your side of the fence. They can build their own Utopia, and hunt it properly if they want to see more deer. Hide the deer on your land, and you eliminate poaching and line sitting. It’s that simple.
Food plot screens can be a dynamite tool on a number of fronts. Annuals such as a blend of Ewheat and sorghum let you change and modify your access plans, and permanent solutions such as spruce or pines take up to 10 years to take shape.
