Spring Wildlife Mixes

 

The components of our wildlife blends have been grown in local food plot trials and were selected based on the following criteria:

  Preference by deer or birds

  Adaptation to local soils and climate

  Drought and heat tolerance

  Ability to re-grow after being browsed

  Production of nutritionally-high forage or seed through the spring and summer months

  Similar seed size and planting depth
