Default what type of food plot?

what type/name brand does everyone like for deer food plots? i tried "shot plot" this past year and it grew great. mixed clover,turups,frassica,but then all at once the deer stopped eating it. ive got a trail cam and was getting 130-150 pictures a week. kinda neat to watch the antler growth of each buck. anyways , i hardly get nothing now. 8 pictures in one month. im thinking of going with antler king this year.

Deer habits especially feeding habits change in a hurry in the fall, As soon as the does start coming into season they are only concerned about breading, It's one of the reasons you'll see does with an inch of fat on the hinds quarters and hardly any on the bucks, They are chasing anything that walks. The older bucks wait longer toward the rut because they know the does aren't ready for breeding, the younger bucks run around chasing and get run off by the does.
My cameras showed the same thing starting about a week before thanksgiving. Everything started moving at night.
It was a slow season for me, 1 six pt and a nice doe. One other buck that was donated. My freezers are full.

I plant red and white clover, They hammer it and it is good for about 3 seasons.

were not allowed to bait with corn,ect. here(probably never get caught on my own property), but we are allowed to hunt corn feilds. not sure wha the difference is. we are allowed to put corn out as long as we dont hunt over or near it though.

In Nor Mn where I have property (160 acres) you can usually feed but not bait. I would like to have some food plots installed on my property; but haven't the time myself and cannot seem to find anyone in the area I trust to get the job done. Feeding has been temporarily halted due to disease brought in by cattle herds in the area. When not restricted from doing so, I have several old metal pig feeders that I fill with sunflowers and corn. I also bring in truck loads of sugar beets which the deer and rabbits really love. This is in addition to the salt & mineral blocks that I have placed about the property.
