Deer foodplot screen
What is the best (tallest) annual I can plant to form a visual screen around my food plot?

I tried planting Egyptian Wheat last spring and it never made. Only got 6-8 inches tall at best before dying. I'm going to give it another shot this coming spring.

This may be a dumb question, but why do you want to hide your food plot?

Hide entry / exit to stands, so the plot cant be seen from a road, nake deer feel "safer" in the plot.

Try putting out an insecticide. I have done this several times to my plots. Helps knock back worms that will destroy a crop. may have been your culprit. You could also do a spring food plot of some big forages and then cut out a spot in the middle for the fall plot

I'm not an expert by no means, but I've seen Sorghum at full growth, and it would seem to me that Sorghum would get tall enough to do the trick. If not, just plant some corn, and leave it standing.

Sun hemp, grows well in warm weather and any in a variety of soil. Deer will eat it, and no you can't smoke it.

Egyptian Wheat is a variety of sorghum. Corn would be a good option as well, but is usually harder to grow. Sun Hemp should do well too, but I've never tried it.

This is a hybrid. This is a cross bluegrass, Kentucky bluegrass, featherbed bent, and northern California sinsemilla. The amazing stuff about this is that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt at night on this stuff.
