Small semi-shaded plot

Postby chadbragg » Tue Sep 16, 2008 5:01 am

I was woundering what kind of seeds you guys reccomended. I've lost my main hunting spot this year so I'm trying to get me a few more places to hunt on my existing property. I've opened a shooting lane in some 15yr old planted pine and built a shooting house. I'm not gonna be able to use a tractor or atv plow so I'll be using only a rake. What type of seed do you guys reccomend for this application, I usually just use wheat or oats for winter plots. Thanks in advance for your help!

Wheat and oats should be ok. Your soil will probably be pretty acidic so you will need plenty fertilizer. Make sure its open enough to get some sunlight.

Many clovers grow well in partly shaded areas. I know Dutch Clover grows well in shade. But if your pH isn't correct, you may just want to stick with wheat.

Thanks Guys!!! I think I'll just sow it really thick with wheat and hope for the best results!! Maybe the next time I'm home we'll have a lil rain so I can get it done!!

I've done pretty well the last 2 years with some of the no till food plot blends like " Hot Spot."
They don't seem to require a whole lot of sunlight( as least no more than normal), and they offer the deer a variety.
In the woods or at the lake. Please leave message.
