Throw and grow or no?
Has anyone ever done a throw and grow food plot? New to food plots and I dont no how hard it is to do one?

It's about as easy as raking up the ground and just throwing in the seed. it's mostly blends of rye grass but it will grow with minimal sun light.

Okay and what do you think about the Deer cane mix have you used it?

The deer cane is a mineral. It's not going to grow anything. (that is if we are talking about the same thing???) A good thing to plant for deer is turnips (i'm a big believer in them). What I do for my patches is I take 2 five gallon buckets and fill both buckets half full with loose dirt. then I pour my turnip seed in both buckets and I pour out one bucket into the other and then back into the empty bucket, back and forth until the seed is evenly mixed. Then hand-cast it on my patches.

deer cane is mostly salt I believe, so deer will migrate to it. I think there are better products than deer cane. The bagged sugar beets work great, also the apple chunks. Corn is always a good deer feed.
