Spring Deer Blend – 50 lb bag
This blend is designed to give deer a nutritional supplement during the stressful summer months, when nutritional needs are high and native browse is lacking. These seeds are selected for their heat/drought tolerance, similar sizes, nutritional value and preference by deer.
Contains Iron & clay mixed cowpeas and/or Red Ripper cowpeas, Hutcheson Soybeans, Laredo Soybeans, Mungbeans, Wild Game Food sorghum, Buckwheat and Victor cowpeas.
Planting Rate: Broadcast 45-50 lbs/acre, or Drill 35-40 lbs/acre
Optimum Planting Date: April thru June (plant after last frost date; can plant later with moisture)
Planting Methods: Fertilize and lime according to soil test. Drill or broadcast the seed and cover to 1 inch deep. If broadcasting, use a light disk or drag to achieve this coverage. Planting on a clean, loose, weed- free seed bed and covering the seed to the appropriate depth will greatly increase the successful growth of your food plot.
