      Spring Deer Mix


      The purpose of planting a spring deer food plot is to supplement the natural forage available to deer and to improve their health and overall condition, especially during the critical antler development period. 

      The timing of the critical antler development can vary depending on a number of factors. However, in general, the critical antler development period for whitetail deer in North America typically occurs during the late spring and early summer months, specifically from May to July. During this time, male deer (bucks) are actively growing their antlers, which can add up to a quarter-inch of new growth per day. 

      Spring food plots can also help attract deer to a specific area, which can be useful for hunters who are looking to establish a hunting spot or observe and manage the deer population. Common plants used in spring food plots for deer include warm season legumes that are high in protein and other essential nutrients (such as cowpeas, soybean, lab lab, and sunn hemp).
