Does anyone have any experience with these two seed mixes for plots?
It's coming up and I just planted it two weeks ago Saturday. And ya I planted mine with minimal rain if ya can water itTurkeybuster,how did the evolved harvest throw and grow work out? I threw some out this morning.Forcast said 70% chance rain.Wrong again.
Your grains like oats and rye and even wheat are fast growers. People typically plant these anywhere from early august to Labor day.I've hunted deer all my life but have never put out a real food plot. Something I've noticed is that some of the plot mixes are annuals but recommend planting this time of year. Will a mix planted this time of year actually be productive this season?
I have all my grains put in the ground by mid -August before I start back to work. I've never had a problem with my grains getting too tall. The deer will eat them up to 8-10" tall. Once they hit that 12" point they start to turn away. The tallest I have ever seen them is 6-8" and I rarely plant much past August 15. My plots are on the smaller side (3/4 acre or less) and all tucked against cover. Between the size of my plots and the high deer density around me I have no worries.I plant cereal grains from Labor day through Sept 15, you don't want to plant them too soon or they will get too tall, not as tender. The deer like tender plants better. Heck the farmer don't plant wheat until the end of Sept begining of Oct.
