Hancock's Fall & Winter Wildlife Seed Blend - Hancock's Fall & Winter Wildlife Seed Blend is designed for low cost winter food plots that provide a variety of high protein legumes. Planted at 40 lbs. an acre in most soil types germination will occur within three to five days. Fertilization is vital for a great food plot. We recommend 200 lbs. per acre of 16-04-08. 400 lbs of lime or dolomite should be applied every two or three years in the food plot. Remember to choose a location with moist soil conditions during the rainy season. Our winter food plot blend is plain and simple, "quality seed with quality results".
To effectively observe the wildlife impact on your food plot, place a 10' x 6' barrier made of chicken wire and zip ties in the middle of your food plot. Be sure to staple down the wire with camping stakes. By using the barrier you may find that some seed varieties grow better and that the deer prefer some varieties more than others in your specific location. We pride our self on custom seed mixes. After you identify the varieties that your deer herd prefers we can then custom blend your own food plot mix for the next planting season. It is impossible to create a food plot mix that all deer in all locations will absolutely love each and every ingredient. Our mix provides eight effective and inexpensive fall and winter food plot seed varieties. These eight ingredients have proven to grow, survive and provide adequate nutrition throughout the southeastern United States from October through April.
