Nicholas Stalford of York County and Myles Hutton (pictured) of Pickens County won the 2015-2016 South Carolina 4-H Wildlife Food Plot Project.
For the project, 4-H members plant and grow food for wildlife and are judged based on their plots’ productivity and their plot-management records. Youth learn to identify different types of plants and signs of wildlife associated with the food plot.
The third annual Wildlife Food Plot Project was coordinated by South Carolina 4-H with help from QDMA and its youth component, the Rack Pack. The statewide competition is for youth ages 5-19. Food plots were grown through the fall and winter. Winners were announced in March.
Regional winners received a Rack Pack gift bag, which included a hunting safety vest, resource materials, a water bottle and more. Winners of the state competition received a Moultrie infrared trail camera.
