Jm, I bowhunt for deer. My place is in SW WI. I was thinking about three small plots. One on a ridge top in the center of my land. In that I would plant an early season food like clover or some mix with clover to pull the deer to the middle of the land early getting them accustom to the place (I have bedding all around). Down in my ravine I have a spot covered with multi floral rose so I would cut that all down and plant either another early plot or maybe a fall plot. I usually hunt the ridge above the ravine and deer cross both length wise running the ride and go up and over towards the center ridge top. I should back up and mention my 35 acres sits next to a 200 acre AG field. When they plant corn I have a lot of deer. This year it was beans (odd year cycle beans then corn) and I had fewer sightings. Finally on the west side of my property I have a small water hole and some apple trees. In that area I was thinking a small late season plot since the apple trees drop fruit all season long. A late season food plot could take over when the apples stop. These are wild apple trees that I fertilize. One tree in particular still had apples that the squirrels knock off up to a few weeks ago. The deer know this and cruise by for a sweet snack.

What I am really doing is thinking two years ahead when we get beans again. I need something to pull the deer in from the corn fields that other farmers have down the road. The water hole I put in was a good start and I think a few small food plots strategically placed can't hurt.
