"They know enough to feed only at night, or to circle the plot to smell a hunter in a tree stand. So I like to let a food plot go fallow for 4-5 years and create another plot in the same general area. Deer will be attracted to the new food source, and it'll take them a few seasons to figure out where hunter encounters happen. And about the time they do, you can go back and open up the original plot and start over. You've had two or three generations of deer that have had no experience with that spot, so it's all new to them."
