Hunting over native vegetation can be either a huge advantage or a huge mistake, depending on how well you've done your homework.
Hunting over native vegetation on your property is a great way to make use of the natural resources you already have and can be a season saver if you've waited until too late to start your own food plot. But, the biggest thing about using native vegetation is doing your research and making sure you know what you have and what the deer are going to be interested in. Check out this tip below from Grant Woods to find out how to use Persimmon to your advantage this season.
Next time you are out walking your property, whether hunting or just checking trail cameras, take a few minutes to check the vegetation as well. You never know what you might have that can help make your season if you just take the time to do a little research. And of course, if you want to help out the vegetation a little, you can always look into some chestnut trees or any of these other great natural food plot items.
