food plot ??

I don't know if theres much difference in the big name blends and feed store seeds or not. I personally plant feed store oats, wheat, rye, and clover almost every year. They grow fine for me and would probably grow much better if I did soil tests and used lime to get the soil ph correct. I haven't done that because by the time I buy seed the money is running out. My small plots still do ok and draw deer and turkeys like crazy.

Imperial clover

I personally plant imperial clover which produces more protein and valuable vitamins that all deer need.

I've never had a need to plant a plot, but if I did clover would be the top choice Yes
