Default Sweet Spot Plot

Here's all the proof anyone should need that deer like Sweet Spot. They are keeping that rye grass mowed pretty well.

I have plenty of photos that also demonstrate that they're either used to the camera or like the Sweet Spot so well that you just can't hardly run 'em outta the plot. In fact, 61 pictures in 8 days from this camera, all of deer in this plot.

very nice !!
I wish we had some kind of side by side comparison !
We just got back from the hunting land, and they are eating the plots down like crazy.
Food is very scarce now i believe.

Dang Dutch, it sure looks like they love it. I have been trying to find a dealer here in GA that carries their seed but haven't had any luck. Do you know of any? I emailed Sucra Seed yesterday asking about dealers. I would like to try a little of it this year to see how it does.

Where can you get the seed? I would like to try it, but the closest place the website listed was in SC.

Is it a rye grass that woul take over or could you plant it 1/2 and 1/2 with something else?

I've got a little seed, so I'm thinking i'm going to plant a late winter, early spring spot.
I also need to get and learn how to use one of those cameras. I could get hooked on that!!!!!

It's a mix. And the rye grass is different than the rye grass we're used to, or so they say.

Price is going to have to drop some before anyone can use it for large plots. Right now it's higher than just about any seed on the market for the coverage you get.

Default Sweet Spot

Awesome looking plot Dutch. When was it planted? Hope the deer don't eat it down to close. It will be very interesting to see how it does when the heat and humidity turn up down there. By the way, Athens Seed in Watkinsville, GA will have Sweet Spot in inventory in a few weeks.

Not sure if Deasons will have it or not Flash. They won't have it cheap like they did last Fall that's for sure. Turns out that was a pricing error.

'Bout what I figured. Since Kammermeyer's endorsement shows up on their website, I reckon' he should be able to help. Not sure about you, though...

Default Spring Plantings

What time of year do you plant Spring plots down there? What date would you normally be past frost danger? Anyone ever planted any balansa clover in plots? I hear it has a very attractive fragrance whihc deer might like.

Balansa is a cool season annual clover.

I'd love to give it a try on 3 acres I have if it were a little cheaper. Got to get something planted there this year in place of the brassicas. Time to rest that field from brassicas for a spell.

Dixie, you and I are usually considered zone 8 for most planting if it is going by the numbered zones.

Thanks Sandra, 70 bucks for a half acre is a little too pricey for an annual IMO, but I'm gonna wait and see how it does

Well, my Sweet Spot has not done well in the deep shade and the heat of a GA summer. It's all brown and dried up. I'm waiting to see if cooler weather helps it any at all.
