The Hidey Hole blend was created to attract deer! It includes several forage species that deer love to feed on throughout the entire hunting season. There are species that will grow fast and attract deer, and those that are very palatable during the mid and late season. This is a great blend of forage species to plant in small plots to attract deer for hunters to see deer at close range.
All the clovers and alfalfa are pre-inoculated with Exceed Precoat from Visjon Biologics, an OMRI approved, long lasting formulation chocked full of bacteria that will take nitrogen from the atmosphere and convert it to plant-available forms of nitrogen for the clover and alfalfa plants.

The seeds in this blend respond well to being broadcast into a plot with minimal plant competition, even areas with dead weeds from the previous year or crop. It can also be broadcast into an existing summer crop, but then it's best to terminate the summer stand shortly after planting. The dead vegetation will cover the seeds and conserve soil moisture. If a drill is used, only plant 1/4" to 1/2" deep.
The Hidey Hole blend should be planted 6-8 weeks before the first average frost date during the fall and when there’s adequate soil moisture or a forecast of rain.
Plant 100 pounds per acre when seeding with a no-till drill or other planting implement.
