And don't forget, if you missed our other pieces —  "Food Plots for Idiots" and "Small Food Plots for Big-Time Bowhunting" — they're just a click away!

Firminator G-3 ATV

Firminator G3 ATV

The Firminator G-3 ATV from Ranew’s Outdoor Equipment is designed to work with your ATV or UTV to make discing, seeding and cultipacking your food plots easier than ever. This handy unit combines 12-inch, ground-eating disks with a precision accu-seed delivery system and an agricultural-grade, cast- iron cultipacker. Sized for ATVs, the frame is constructed of 3-inch square steel tubing, and the seed box sports an all-steel make just like the Firminator 3-point models. The ATV model comes with a tow bar sized for a 17⁄8-inch ball, but also boasts the 3-point hitch just in case you want to use the unit on a small tractor. $6,500, plus shipping |

Mossy Oak Biologic Non-Typical Clover

Mossy Oak Biologic Non-Typical Clover

Clover is staple food-plot planting, and Mossy Oak Biologic Non-Typical Clover features a blend of specially selected clover species that will establish quickly and provide an excellent forage yield throughout the year. One of the easiest Biologic blends to grow, Non-Typical Clover is also very cold tolerant and produces large, palatable leaves whitetail deer crave. $69.99 (8-pound bag) |

Micro Food Plots Disc/Cultipacker Combo Unit

Micro Food Plots Disc/Cultipacker Combo

The Micro Food Plots Disc/Cultipacker Combo Unit is a great implement that will help you create pro-grade food plots with your ATV or UTV. The Disc/Cultipacker Unit attaches via a 2-inch ball hitch and includes an eight-blade disc and 22 independent and adjustable cast-iron packer wheels. A quick turn of the load binder on top of the unit adjusts disc depth, and you can easily raise and lower the cultipacker with a heavy-duty front-mounted winch. This innovative food plot tool is made in the USA and weighs approximately 725 pounds. $2,229 |

Hooyman 24V Lithium Ion Chest Spreader

Hooyman 24V Lithium Ion Chest Spreader

The new Hooyman 24V Lithium Ion Chest Spreader makes seed scattering faster, easier and more comfortable than ever. An adjustable throttle gives you full control of your throwing pace, and the proprietary throwing disc features curved fins married with the upward-angled disc to maximize throwing distance for a more even spread. Seed everything from large soybeans to microscopic alfalfa seed via the adjustable feed rate. Price unavailable |

Whitetail Institute Imperial No-Plow Annual

Whitetail Institute Imperial No-Plot Annual

Some of the best places for small “kill plots” are in off-the-beaten path locations where heavy equipment can’t go. Whitetail Institute Imperial No-Plow Annual is designed for just such setups. This high-protein annual blend can provide up to nine months of attraction, and all you’ll need to help it grow is a few hand tools. As long as the area receives three to four hours of sunlight per day, this quick-growing mix featuring clover, brassicas, radishes and more will keep the deer coming in. $40.98 (9-pound bag) |

Wicked Tree Gear Ultra Light Pole Saw

Wicked Tree Gear Ultra Light Pole Saw

The Wicked Tree Gear Ultra Light Pole Saw is a must-have tool for clearing overhanging limbs around your food plots and erecting those stand setups for your next ambush. Available in 10- and 14-foot extended lengths, the curved, arborist-style, high-carbon-steel blade cuts through limbs quickly and smoothly. The rubber grip on the handle ensures an excellent feel, and the saw head removes so you can use it as a compact hand saw. Blade length is 11 inches on both models. $99.99-$129.99 |

Premier 1 Supplies Deer QuikFence

Premier 1 Supplies Deer QuikFence

In areas with high deer densities, keeping them out of your plot until plants establish can be critical. Deer QuikFence from Premier 1 Supplies (also shown in the lead photo of this article) helps you do just that. This portable, temporary electric fencing system is designed to condition deer to avoid fenced areas, giving your plots time to grow until you decide to remove the fence and let deer in. The Deer QuikFence system offers a variety of fencing, installation posts and plug-in or solar-powered electrification options to meet your individual needs. Price varies based on components |

Antler King Plot Max

Antler King Plot Max

Antler King Plot Max is a humic-based, organic liquid carbon product that will help take the productivity of your food plots to a higher level. Plot Max will increase the pH of the soil, making nutrients more available to plants and resulting in increased seed germination, strong root development, faster growth and an enhanced ability to retain moisture. Plot Max is designed to be diluted with water and sprayed onto plots in spring and fall for maximum results. It can even be mixed with weed killer in the same sprayer to accomplish both jobs in a single pass. $24.99 (treats half an acre) |
