If you are a bowhunter three to four weeks before your season opener would be about the optimal time to plant. This will give just enough time for the plot to germinate and start to produce that fresh succulent forage the deer will be crazing this time of the year. Most native browse and crops are nearing the end of their seasons. There are a few reasons you want to wait to plant inside a month before the season.
If you plant it too early, the oats especially, will begin to become more mature and stemy before you get a chance to hunt over it. You should not have that problem with our Frosty Feed mix but it doesn't hurt to plant in about that same window frame. Remember the Frosty Feed with the winter wheat can still be very attractive to your deer herds later in the winter. To plant either make sure you spray the existing vegetation with a glyphosate to kill and remove any competition. Follow that up by tilling the soil and drilling or broadcasting the seed and the cultipack the soil for optimum seed to soil contact. You could also add to the plot and mix a brassica mix in with it such as our Green Beast, to add another dimension to it come late season. Pray for rain and wait for opening day!
