Default Any luck with BioMaXX or Winter Greens?

Im looking to plant a nice food plot this year that will be good in late season. Im really looking into BioMaxx, but also have some interest in Imperial Winter Greens. Does anyone have any experience with any of these?

I dont want to plant clover considering i had horrible luck with it. The deer never touched it.

I grow corn and soybeans, which is what BioMaxx is, just mixed together. And they both make a hard to beat late season plot. The last time i checked, the biomaxx was $150 for 45lbs, and that plants 1 acre. A better option would be to check into conservation seed. It is sold for $6 to 10 dollars a bag (sometimes free!) and a bag of that plants 2.5 acres. Quail Unlimited, NWTF, Pheasants Forever and a few other places has that seed available. You could save money on seed and have some left for fertilizer, which is something your going to need if you grow those, especially corn.

The winter greens is a mix of brassicas, that again is way over priced. Something like $100 bucks for 12lbs. of seed which plants 2 acres. You can find similar, if not identical seeds at your local co-op/feed store and even online for $30-36 dollars for 12lbs.

I tried wintergreens a couple years ago and will never go back to them. Like haystack said they are way over priced. I payed $40 for a 3lb that was supposed to go 1/2 acre, well I have no idea how anyone can spread 3 lbs thin enough to go 1/2 acre. They came up but the weeds were much thicker and they didnt last long at all, the deer hardly touched any of them. I switched over to Buck forage oats and have had a lot of success with that.
