Hancock's Spring & Summer Food Plot Seed Mix - Our special food plot seed mix offers four high quality, high protein legumes to bring in the deer when native browse has become tough and low in nutrition. The fast germinating wild game sorghum, peredovik sunflowers, dwarf deer corn and millet help protect the legume seedlings from early over browse. After the iron clay peas, aeschynomene, sunn hemp and alyce clover are established, deer will utilize their tender buds all summer until the first hard frost. Depending on your food plot location, this food plot seed mix can still be drawing deer well into the fall and winter hunting season.
Our spring and summer food plot mix will provide high protein nutrition throughout the spring and summer into the fall until the first hard frost. High protein food plots will increase antler size, body weight and heard health. In most locations our spring and summer mix will continue to feed your deer herd into the first part of hunting season.

"I have used Hancock Seed products at my hunt clubs for over five years with dramatic results. My deer herd and turkey flocks are not only healthier but the numbers have dramatically increased with these products. The blended product that I get, gives me a food plot which has different nutrients maturing at different times during the growing season, thus giving me a continual food source for my wildlife. I like these products the best because they are geared towards our Florida soils and perform the best. The results speak for themselves."
