Summary - 2017 Food Plot Seed Review

By any measure the results from our 2016 food plot season were simply terrific. We had great moisture, terrific growing conditions, and a significant increase in deer activity - including mature buck sightings in daylight.

This occurred at the heels of a mild winter in 2016 and that was welcomed, since the winter of 2015 was devastating for our area.
