Planting Food Plots for Deer

Planting food plots is the best way to attract deer to your property, and Tallgrass Land Management can do that for you! These plots can serve as supplemental or emergency food supplies during extreme cold or snow in winter months or may help deer get ready for winter. They can also assure that the deer have adequate food supplies for reproduction and raising their young in the spring and summer months.


In addition to attracting deer, food plots help manage the land, build healthy and productive soils and prevent soil erosion. They can help keep unwanted trees and underbrush from regrowing on land that has been cleared. Planting food for deer is beneficial for wildlife enthusiasts, hunters, farmers, and property owners alike.


Our Food Plots Program


At Tallgrass Land Management, we have the knowledge, skill, and equipment necessary to create healthy and impactful plots to attract deer. It all starts with a visit to your land and our providing you with a free estimate for our services. Here is how we break down the process.


  • We start with examing the soil on site. That’s the only way we can determine the correct seeding you will need for your property.
  • Next up are the weeds. We recommend a herbicide and let you know our plan for its application.
  • A fertilizer application comes next if needed.
  • Depending on your property tillage may be required before seeding. If tillage is not required then we move on to seeding.
  • We work with you in determining what seeds to plant for their food plot.
  • A follow-up herbicide application may be applied 4 to 8 weeks later after seed emergence.


Our goal is to deliver the best plots possible, leading to greater deer harvest and enhanced wildlife habitats
