Just had my place logged, and the logger really opened up a small food plot, that I was plating in winter wheat because that’s about the only thing I can get to grow because the lack of sunshine. Now it’s getting a lot more light just looking for any seed blends or plant recommendations.

Is that really a bowl, or is the pano pic just making it look that way?

How big is that spot? Browse pressure is hard on a lot of stuff in small plots.
Even if you have clover around you, it's still a great choice for small kill plots. Sure deer like a variety, but they rarely pass up a free meal so to speak.

I have to agree with the ladino and red clover mix along with some type of grain, wheat, rye, oats. Throw in some turnips too if youd like. Small areas get hit first and hit hard as they provide the security deer like. If it's a small area, I think turnips will be a draw for a short time when the leaves turn really attractive and will be gone quickly leaving them going elsewhere. The quick regrowth of the clover and grains with be beneficial for your area.but you know what, it's your decision. Plant turnips this year if you want, see how it goes, and plan next year accordingly.

This spot was opened after our farm was logged. Did white clover and WW first year and over seeded white and crimson clover. It's done very well for us.

I'm not a picture on the bag guy or a food plot specialist be any means, but I would give the Big n Beatsy from Frigid Forrest some serious consideration. Early archery season could be action packed!
