Yepper, Frank nailed it......I usually just buy a little of this and a little of that----mix it all up and spread it out! Now when/if you decide to go w/ only peas/beans, I soak mine overnight then hand cast em out. The water soaks into the seed and expedites the growth process! I've had seed's sprout in 24 hours this way!

Good Idea but we are too wet to disk!

By the way I have built and sold all my frontier lowers and never shot a rd through them... getting ready to order more. I still do not have a 5.56 to my name!

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.
have to disagree on this one.we got some local seed and it was straight garbage.it was cheap but it never grew right.we bought hancock summer mix seed and it grew like nothing i ever seen..the local seeds we got from mannings never did squat.Ill be using nothing but hancock seeds for now on.planting 5 more acres this week.The turkeys love this food plot

Tat, I think you have to trust your feed store, Harris in Vernon FL is the best all his own mixes that grow local and Hwy 77 feed and seed will help you too. Hancock is good seed but when you are growing in sand and the guy is 20 mile N and an educated seed store owner he has the best mix. remember we have no soil here.

I wish I had soil and your deer...LOL Great luck this year Bud!

Frank the 223 would be like a 22 compared ta what you and Sawman's been shooting!!!!
Pics look good Tat! I try to tell folks use what works....I've bought them high dollar seed pacages and see less quality plants then throwing my own together. Most co-ops are local farmer folk and you get tons of wisdom by listening to the elders sitting around jack-jawing.....
