How may I establish food plots in an area that’s primary mature timber?

I was wondering if you had any ideas on food plots for me. There are no logging roads through the property and it is old timber so the ground is mostly dirt. What do you suggest i do other than log a part of the property. Thanks

I’m not sure I understand your question.  I believe you are asking if food plots will work well in an area that’s covered with mature timber.

All forage crops that I’m aware require at least a half a day of sunshine to prosper. Most do best when they receive all sunlight available during a day.  If there are no openings in the timber’s canopy such as where lightning killed a tree, etc., I doubt any crop will prosper.

Enjoy creation,
