TROY WESTRUM - IOWA

The deer are utilizing Winter-Greens much earlier in the fall than they did the other brassica products that I have used in the past. I also have a 4-acre plot of Imperial Whitetail Clover that was planted in 1999 and it looks as good, if not better, than it did after the first year!

The Texas hunter planted a food plot of Extreme, a Whitetail Institute perennial blend, in September in North Texas; and even though there was very little rain, the plot did well.
