This Spring I'll be planting some of those sample packs you're talking about. I'm always looking for that sweet spot that will draw whitetails like a magnet. So I ordered a single sample assortment and a double sample assortment. That will give me a small (7 different products x 3 of 100 sq ft each. Thats 7, 30x30ft plots) Now that may sound like a crazy checkerboard idea, but I think it will show me what the very well-fed herd in my area will favor. Then next year, I can plant accordingly. So I guess I'm field testing for drawing more deer to my ground. I will say that the 30 acres of alfalfa already draw a large herd - but, where the does are, the bucks will be, right? So I've established a fair sized (4x4) mineral lick just inside the tree line that is like Grand Central Station in the area of my test field. I figure next year will bring a bountiful harvest - and I'm hopeful I'll do OK this year, too. By the way, I ride a cherry 1958 AC D-17. Safe and productive hunting, brother!
