Growth Results

We planted this last year and had terrific growth. Same in 2012. We really like this blend, it is simple to plant, emerges quite easily, and attracts deer very quickly. I should note that the Oats and Peas came up great, but the turnips were not as impressive.

Activity Results

Early season activity is excellent on this plot. We had tons of photos and one of our best for daylight activity. The one thing we found interesting was that we never had a photo of a mature buck here. For sheer quantity of daylight activity this was our top plot until early November.


I really like this blend. So does my son Matt who claimed this plot as his own personal kill plot. The oats and peas pull deer in quick and the turnips provided some later season activity. Had the turnips come in a little stronger I'm sure we would have seen better late season action.
