I agree with TJD abot the moisture of the soil. Clover does really well in a clay loam or heavy soils. Doesn't work well in sandy soils, I have found. It also works great on trails in the woods if the PH is right and there is some sun.

I would go with Trophy King Trophy Clover mix or use their Red Zone or Honey Hole. Fertilize with Plot Max, and use their pH test kit before anything else to make sure your soil,pH is on. Check out all the awesome products by Antler King at www.antlerking.com

just remember you want to hunt over your plots. clover will not be that attractive in november, in northen states, like other things rape,turnips, corn,soybeans, wheat&rye oats ect, clover/alfalfa will be good in summer& early fall or till a hard frost. as for buying all the high priced seed out there, well i will say ladino clover is ladino clover?? they claim there clover has 39% protein well same stuff at your local co-op or feed store, cost less also, good hunting

We planted the new Durana Clover just last week,made 4 small Plots in the woods where the smaller trees were thinned out and the Sun shines thru much more!Cleaned out the leaves and debris and ran a small ATV disc across all the areas and spread down some granular lime and broadcasted the seed down!The Durana Clover is suppose to be more hardy and drought resistant.....will let You know how well it turns out.

pyclub1-you have got a lot of good info so far, just remember what grows in the south might not work in the north, and as for all the high class seed out there your local farm store will have what you will need, much less money also, clover will be a good thing to have for summer & early fall but when it frost out it will be done! and deer will not go to it, if you want to hunt over it only go with rye,rape,turnips, corn, ect, you will get much better hunting from it much later in the season, if you would like some pic of some plots e-mail me and i will send some, i live in northen mich, i don't know everything about planting, only been doing it for 27+years. good luck in your hunting and plots

I plant soybeans in the spring.Then mid to late august just before leaves start to turn yellow i broadcast,winter rye,winter wheat,oats,peas,crimson clover and Ground hog radish into the beans.By the time the beans are brown you have a rich green fall/winter food plot.Then in spring the wheat and rye will start up again so you have food right away in spring till you work it up.
