The whitetails are so big in the north that we decided to put a field office in Minnesota to keep track of how our northern forages and blends performed. It’s still there so, needless to say, the forages performed well beyond our expectations and yes, the whitetails got even bigger. To give your plants the best chance of success plant with adequate soil moisture. Normally, early spring and late summer planting will be the most successful. You can frost seed or plant in the spring when daytime high temps start to reach 63 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit for several days in a row. Late summer plantings should be planted prior to the onset of autumn rains. A good rule of thumb is to make sure your food plots are planted at least 45 days prior to the first frost. Early season hunting plots can be very effective. Clover Plus, Sudden Impact and Winter Peas make excellent early season hunting plots. Outfitters Blend, Last Bite, Trophy Oats, and Green Patch Plus are all superb plantings for mid-season bowhunting and into firearms season. Maximum, Winter Bulbs & Sugar Beets and Full Draw are perfect plantings in the Northern Zone for mid to late season hunting. Blends with a mix of annuals and perennials like Perfect Plot or Premium Perennial may also be planted 45 to 60 days before a frost for late season attraction and to get a jump start on a perennial stand for the following year.
