    What and when would be good to put out in a 1/4-1/2 kill plot for deer. I do have a rotavator for the tractor.

    I just put mine out, but I know nothing about it but what I've read and asked.
    2 red clover and 2 with biologic greener mix.
    2 are very small and could be eatin to the ground over night, but hoping to create a travel route.

    I like white clover with a little red mixed in a some winter wheat. It all grows good for me with minimal care. And basically now till mid September is when I plant for fall. Good luck

    That small clover is about the only option, maybe throw some cereal rye or oats and turnips in with it to maybe give it a little cover crop. Probably get eaten to the ground if you have many deer. Clover should look good next spring though

    What is the mix? Why is theirs better than buying the same seed at southern states and mixing it yourself for a quarter of the cost?

    Really hard to know without seeing your place and what’s around you. But really hard to go wrong with Clover blend and winter grains. Winter Rye is most pH tolerant.

    Cereal grain rye and winter oats is what I have used for the last several years. This mix will draw deer all winter if you have enough area to prevent over browsing.

    Good raining day so sowed red clover, rape, and winter wheat in freshly dozed soil. Try to get the electric fence on it in next couple days.

    I've done that with 3 this year, tired of not getting enough rain to keep up with the grazing. We'll see, we're getting enough lately and looks like more coming. Hoping to get some Pellet Lime and Fertilizer on tomorrow as it looks like much less chance of rain. We've gotten 2"+ since saturday.

    My cousin gave me a bunch of fiberglass poles bout 5' long and 1 1/4" in diameter. I drilled 4 holes in them and cut em off sharp. They drove in nicely with the T-Post driver. I use 4 T-Posts one on each corner to draw tight and use the Fiberglass in between. I pull the wire up and zip tie it to the holes. Free fenceposts are the best! :)

    If “nature” calls make sure to point away from the fence. Your welcome. Lol

    Cane reed/bamboo are great economy fence posts as well. We used them on our corn patch.
