Growth Results

Growth was a bit slow at first due to dry conditions after seeding but it rapidly grew after a couple of good rains and came in very thick..

Activity Results

First year took a while for deer to figure it out. But second year it got hammered quickly and continued to be heavily utilized through December. It was our top attracting plot in 2012.


I am very impressed with this seed blend. The first year it grew fantastic but the deer in our area needed time to figure it out. That all changed by the 2nd year and it came up fast and lush and the deer hammered it almost immediately. It drew out all of the bucks on our property at least once a week.
