Default fall plot

I am looking to find when and where winter peas (was told this was name) will be available for plots? I have never used these, so not very familiar how they grow, or attract deer. If not this, would welcome any suggestions.

The problem with the Austrian Winter Peas is the same as the Iron Clay Peas, that is unless you have a 2-3 acre food plot, or put up an electric fence to keep the deer out when the plants are getting established, the deer absolutely destroy the plot before the peas get going. You might consider using a blend like Whitetail Institutes Pure Attraction that contains winter peas, but also has oats and wheat, and a few other plants included.

I ordered mine off the Internet, I know Sportsmans Guide carrys it for around $49 for a 26# bag. Also, I added a full 50# bag of forage oats when I planted the Pure Attraction last year, and it lasted all through the season, and the deer were loving it.

AWPs are planted in the fall and although they provide some forage during the winter, they explode with growth in spring (much like clover). We planted them last year to have something green in March/April, but the deer really didn't touch them. We won't be trying them again....waste of money on seed.

Now a rye grain/clover mix....that's a different story.

We've planted rye in the past with decent results.

How will the rye grain/clover mix do in central Mississippi as far as growing is concerned... and when should they be planted???

My best advice is stay away from all name brand over priced seeds. Go to the Feed store close to your lease, I bet they have their own mix for that area they put together cheaper and better than any name brand + it is acclimated to your area. I throw a 5 way, and add clover, it is cheap and the deer eat it. For best results get a soil test and add lime and fertilizer as required.
