What type of food plot should I plant for late season hunting?

I hunt out of South Georgia and we've got large soybean fields that have a lot of activity early in the season. I'm wanting to plant something that will have a lot of activity late in the season. I've had good luck planting oats before but want to weigh all my options.

Your best choice for a late season food source is something like chicory. Very deep rooted, drought resistant, and stays green all year long. It also withstands very heavy grazing, which is something you may need with all the hogs in the area. Also very high in protein and very desirable. That would be my choice in the south.

Wow. I'm in N Georgia and alternate years between corn and soybeans for my early season plots. However, I've been using oats as a staple late season plot for years. I always have a good stand with minimal maintenance, get good activity from the wildlife AND get to cut it and use it for cattle hay in the spring. But you guys are saying chicory is better??

Yeah chicory is pretty much the bees knees in the south. Chicory is also a perennial, so you won't have to replant it each year. If you can get turnips or sugar beets to grow, and get a cold snap that far south, you would have awesome success over it in small plots like we do up north, but chicory is probably your best bet for year round attractiveness and overall nutrition.

oats and clover are what we use to attract deer all year...

I think it may be very convenient. You can easily compare prices in different countries and find your dream hunting. Your opinion is highly needed!
