Rudy’s Feed n’ Seed

Food Plot Guide

 

 

Establishing an attractive food plot that enables wildlife to thrive is a rewarding way to extend your hunting experience beyond the seasonal harvest. Like any other project you take pride in, a successful food plot starts with good thought and careful planning.

Our Seed Mixtures:

Rudy’s QDM Wildlife Mix: Perhaps one of the best all-around wildlife mixes available and the only food plot many will ever need. Packed with four premium white clovers and chicory, QDM mix provides the essential nutrients and minerals for body growth and maximum antler development. Adapted to a variety of soil types and growing conditions, this mixture is good for meadows, fields and border areas. A single planting lasts three to five years.

Rudy’s Maximum Fall Attractant: Has explosive growth and super attraction in the ultimate stand side hunting plot. Maximum is an annual fall forage that deer will go absolutely crazy for.

Plant in late summer to early fall for a hunting plot forage that deer cannot resist.

Seed Species We Use in Our Mixes

Ladino Clover: Ladino clover is a tall white flowering clover that tolerates wet, acidic soils. Ladino is very high in protein and should only be used in mixtures. Under conditions favorable for its growth it becomes very aggressive and may increase the bloat hazard. A major component of many deer and wildlife food plot mixtures. Plant 1/2 - 2 lbs. per acre in mixes.

                                                                                                                              ______________ lb.

Alsike Clover: This short-lived perennial tolerates wet and acid soils better than alfalfa and slightly better than red clover. On wet or acid soils alsike may be desirable even if it does not persist long in the mixture. While it survives, it will provide nitrogen to the grass, thus lowering fertility costs. Its relative short growth makes it desirable in pasture mixtures.

                                                                                                                              ______________ lb.

Chicory: A perennial taproot herb, chicory is drought tolerant and mineral rich. It produces abundant high protein leafy forage throughout the summer. Used in wildlife mixtures as a food for deer, grouse and turkeys. Plant 2-3 lbs. per acre in mixes.

                                                                                                                              ______________ lb.

Kakariki White Clover: A New Zealand White clover that is very high yielding and large leafed. Its maintains a high feed quality in late spring and summer which is very important when protein is needed for deer growth and antler development.  Plant 2-4 lbs. per acre in mixes, 6-8 lbs. alone.

                                                                                                                              ______________ lb.

White Dutch Clover: Very short white flowering clover found in lawns and wooded areas. Tolerates acidic soils and low fertility making it a good choice in wildlife mixtures. Very useful for trails and fringe areas where a low growing clover is desired. Plant 1/2-2 lbs. per acre in mixes, 6-8 lbs. alone.

                                                                                                                              ______________ lb.

Rape: A short season brassica species that is classified as a biennial but will usually not overwinter in the north. Very succulent top growth of high nutrient value that stays green very late in the fall. Should be planted in the late summer for fall forage. Used in wildlife and deer mixtures. Al so known as canola when grown as a grain crop for its oil. Plant 2-4 lbs. per acre in mixes, 8-12 lbs. alone.

                                                                                                                              ______________ lb.

Turnip: A short-season brassica species very similar to rape, except it also produces a significant root growth as well as a succulent top growth. Deer will eat the top growth in late fall and dig for the root growth in the winter. Plant 2 lbs. per acre in mixes or alone.
