There is a guy on TexasBowhunter.com that has been posting pictures of his Tecomate Lab/Lab Plus that is doing awesome. He also used Plotsaver to allow it to start growing before the deer destroyed it and from the looks of it, it works. In the places that he has removed the Plotsaver, you can already see major browsing going on.

I'll see if I can dig up a link.

adams the secret spot will that be easy to plant and only needs 4 hours or does your new ambition to star this project refer to that? thanks
I've planted two food plots by hand totaling a little over a half an acre. I also have a victory garden(vegitables) that requires a couple of hours a week to maintain. I just about sick of gardening[:'(]. The clover is very easy to maintain. Since I planted I've watered twice and sprayed to kill grasses once. If all goes well it will last up to 5 years, Ahh a happy thought.

The place I have picked out for the secret spot is out in the woods in an overgrown field. I'll have to spread some lime(carry 50lb bags in a back pack to get it to the site) I'll probably spread 300lbs. So thats quite a bit of work. I'll spray to kill the grasses first but will still hand till to ensure good soil seed contact (seed soil contact is very important). I figure it will take the better part of a weekend to get the plot in. I plan to get it in by early August. I'm just dragging my feet. Oh well....

To answer you question the Secret Spot will still require some ground preperation but not as much as other products.

deer love clover, corn, winter wheat. you buy them from a feed/farm store for a lot cheaper than all these "super buck mixes" & in my area they work every bit as good.
