This is a very attractive annual blend of Brassicas and forage Soybeans! Typically brassica blends become more attractive after the first few frosts but with Ground Pounder the attraction begins immediately!! Knowing that these soybeans will never reach maturity is exactly what we want! At the onset of germination these soybeans will become a magnet to whitetails training them to where they can be sustained throughout the winter months. With the first hard frost, these soybeans plants will no longer be attractive as their cycle will end but with this first frost the turnip tops begin to start their high attractiveness and the "dinner plate" continues its drawing power!
A blend of cereal grains and greens consisting of forage Oats, Wheat, Rye, Triticale, & forage Collards. This blend was specifically designed and blended for late season plantings. Northern time zone plantings are Sept-thru mid Oct. and the Southern zone Oct-November.
These grains and collards produce very nutritious and attractive shoots that, if planted correctly, will handle an excessive amount of browse that is highly digestible, drawing the whitetails back throughout the season and winter months! If planted too early these grains will become tall, coarse, and grainy making them unattractive. If this happens, mow it back 3-4'' a few weeks prior to the hunting season. This is an annual blend but in most cases the grains will return in the spring.
Planting instructions: For best results prepare soil, broadcast and roll in with cultipacker firmly pressing seed into soil.
"Covert" is a specific blend of annual grains and grasses designed to create 9'-12' tall screen with the "back-bone" to stand thru extreme weather conditions completely covering up any desired plot from roads, neighbors, other plots etc. Also used to create pinch points or travel corridors to put whitetails right where you want them!
Genesis "Double Shot" Is a proprietary blend of wildlife grain sorghum proven to keep the investment of your soybeans vertical through the tuff winter months. Not only does this protect the soybeans, but it's also an abundant source of nutritional value, not to mention the wildlife cover it provides! (Unbelievable for upland game birds too!)
Give your plot that highly attractive one-two punch of high protein and loads of starch. Protein is slow to burn and as the temperatures fall its needed much more. Much like corn, this specific blend of Sorghum is quick to turn to energy! Whitetails can only proccess just so much protien in their daily diet (13-16%), so nature lets them manage that internally and forces them to balance their diet with these starches as well.
The Miscanthus Grass that we use is a perennial grass with bamboo-like stems that can grow to heights of more than 13' in one season (from the third season onwards) creating a tall thick wall of green!
We use this grass in areas that we want to create soft, (not stumped) yet permanent hedge rows along roads or around plots. We also use this in areas to create permanent pinch points and corridors for year round whitetail travel.
This specific Miscanthus seed is sterile, so it is planted by the rhizome (root 2-1/2-5" long). For optimum structure and stanability, we plant these rhizomes in 2-3 rows every 18" apart and each rhizome 18" apart (18"x18"x18") which would be 67 rhizomes per 100'.
Always plant miscanthus when ground temps are consistantly 60 dregrees or higher.
"Buckstop" oats is a very hardy forage oat with a good lodging score that has excellent emergence and is super attractive to whitetails in it's infant stage.
This variety is also our go-to variety when nursing in a new stand of clover, alfalfa, etc. that needs that quick and vital protection and weed suppression as it's being established.
When planted as a stand alone product in the fall, Buckstop oats is sure to stop them in their tracks every time!
( For best results 48lb per acre when blended or 96lb stand alone)
All soybeans are not the same however. Forage soybeans have been hyped as something special for deer plots but testing has proven that forage soybeans do not have the same level of protein and other key nutrients as Real World soybeans. This has been shown in multiple side-by-side tests where tissue samples were analyzed at independent labs. Furthermore forage soybeans do not have the grain production of Real World soybeans, in fact forage soybeans have a longer growing season and in some areas they will not even mature and produce any grain at all.
If you are planting forage soybeans in your food plots we challenge you to buy 1 bag of Real World soybeans and plant them side-by-side. There is no better way to see first-hand which soybean is best on your property. Don’t you really want to be planting the best? Dare to Compare!
RWWP Clover and Chicory contains only the very best varieties found in our test plots. We started by planting every clover variety we could find side-by-side and letting the deer tell us which ones they preferred. Chicory makes a great companion crop with clover and makes up 3% of the total blend. Chicory is packed with protein and drought hardy. The particular variety of chicory we use was the most attractive variety in our testing. Clover produces tons of forage throughout the year and is a staple for the serious land manger looking to produce the most forage he can for his herd. This blend is also great for fire breaks, access lanes, logging roads, and slightly shaded small plots that can be maintained through mowing.
Real World Wildlife Products has combined our two most popular fall-planted products into one and the results are … DEADLY! For several years our customers have planted both Harvest Salad and Plot Topper in the same plot with excellent results. Deer flock to these plots from the time the plot germinates, through the entire hunting season and well into the following spring. We took the hint and have combined these two popular products into a convenient ¼ acre bag, the perfect size for those small kill-plots.
For those land managers looking to attract more than just deer to their plots, Real World offers our “Upland Game Blend”. This mix contains sunflowers, soybeans, sorghum and millet. It is a great product for attracting pheasants, quail, turkeys, rabbits, song birds and a wide variety of wildlife. It is also a great product for deer and can be used to create edges in other plots or diversify your plantings to provide a wider variety of food sources for the game on your property.
Real Worlds “Whitetail Harvest Salad” has been a fan favorite for years because it is easy to grow and extremely attractive. This blend contains three cereal grains and Austrian Winter Peas. The variety of Austrian Winter Peas we use is extremely winter hardy. The deer will hammer the cereal grains when weather conditions have deer going to green food sources. Don’t be misled by other brands that mix annuals and perennials in their fall-planted seed blends or market no-till products. Harvest Salad comes in a 25# bag which is enough to plant 1/2 acre.
Real World variety switch grass is the same switch grass that we use in our Bedding-In-A-Bag. In our side by side tests this switch grass stood better than any other variety we tested including the popular Cave-In-Rock variety. Our Real World Switch Grass will get 7’-8’ tall. Don’t take our word for it, Dare to Compare!
