Each year millions of dollars are spent on locating, clearing, plowing, planting and cultivating food plots for white-tailed deer. What many deer managers overlook, are the species of native and introduced species of plants that deer love to eat that are already growing on the property.
Author and master outdoorsman, J. Wayne Fears, has written a book that addresses how, with a little encouragement, naturally occurring plants can become as much or more valuable than food plots. This 144-page paperback addresses how deer on a property would do even better nutritionally if both native plants and food plots were present.
How to Manage Native Plants for Deer is a guidebook that addresses importance of identifying all of the plant species that deer use for food or cover found on a property, provides an understanding what deer eat and looks at the most valuable and abundant native plants that habitat managers can improve for deer. Author J. Wayne Fears states, “A property manager’s goal is to provide as much quality habitat for deer as possible.
