First, we'll start with why:
As they relate to Deer and Turkeys, why should we plant Spring Food Plots?
Are hunters planting enough spring and summer food plots?
Then the When:
When is the optimal for planting?
When should we make soil amendments?
If we amend, do we need to wait to plant or can we do all of that in a weekend?
Then We'll get into the what:
What conditions should we look for in weather and soil?
What types of plants thrive in the spring and summer?
What plants make good perennials? Is Spring time the right time to plant them?
Next the Where:
Where should we plant? 
Does spring food plot size matter? 
Should we plant our Spring plots where we plant our fall plots?
What about Bowhunters? Can we plant something that we can leave growing through early archery season and then replant with cool season plants just before rifle season? 
Last we'll cover the how:
How does WMS determine what seeds to blend together in a patch?
How do you guys determine the right amount of seed for your blends?
How can a hunter insure the best germination?
