Buying Seeds for food plots

Postby Duxndog » Fri Jul 11, 2014 10:15 pm

I am planting some food plots for the deer and having trouble sourcing seeds: wheat, clovers, brassicas, oats, etc. if anyone has a seed vendor, mill, or farm supply I would like to know about them. Thanks for the help

About any local coop should be able to get you what you need or want. Otherwise, check out Johnston in Enid. http://www.jeinc.com/seed

After doing some searching, I found Chouteau Lime in Pryor to have the best selection of seeds and prices for deer, turkey, and waterfowl food plots. Also they looked to have good selection and price in bagged fert. -FYI- I ended up planted about 6 acres of deer plots last week before the rain. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I've been meaning to snap a picture of my Eagle forage beans. They are getting to be close to 4' tall, deer are just picking the tops out of them.

I did drill them in.
Planted 10 acres as an experimental plot, then drilled in the final 20 acres in Lerado beans with foxtail millet filler. My cattle partner was so impressed he's planting his 80 acres in eagle beans next year.

If I had a controllable moist soil unit, I'd give their food plot rice mix a chance.
