“Feathering” Staging Areas for Game Near Food Plots
Bob McNally 08.24.16
Staging areas designed and maintained around wildlife food plots are important for landowners and hunters to improve success of supplemental food sources for game. Brandon Bobo, a senior wildlife biologist with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) explains how, where, and when to do this.
This type of food plot management is important in making sites attractive to all game, especially whitetail deer. But “feathering” areas around plots also makes them more suitable for a host of game, including bobwhite quail, doves, pheasants, even grouse.
