Does any bait for deer in the spring and summer? I do. I do it so I can start to see what the herd is like and to see how many fawns there are in that year. It also helps me figure out how many does I want to try and take out of the herd. make a buck shot a doe, and leave the little ones to grow. I also make small food plots maybe about 20' by 20' is the smallest size, I put it in an opening in the woods so the deer feed in safty.
