Buckforage Oats
 
Curious about these for a late season food plot.I talked to the company and they say they are hardy for a northern climate but i was wondering if anyone has used them.Results or opinions.

My brother loves them and includes them in all his plots. The deer love them but eat them as soon as they come out of the ground so they don't last long. That's why I don't use them. For me it's pretty much winter wheat, and clover.

So do i. Plain old horse feed oats have done better for me than the expensive buck forage oats. At one place i plant Chilocco oats at about $15.00 per bag.

The deer prefer oats over wheat.

I also go with local oats. Buck forage may work, but you would be better off useing (oats or any seed for that matter) that has been tested, grown and harvested locally.
