Sourcing food plot seed online

Recommended Posts

Anybody have a reputable website they recommend for buying seed?  My local feed stores tend to only carry the more common options (corn, clover, etc.) or prepackaged mixes.  I can read reviews all day, but I prefer first hand experiences if I can get them.

I gave Hancock Seed a try last night. I did a small order to test them out. They seemed to have a good variety to choose from and shipping was free.  I got a tracking number first thing this morning so we'll see how fast they ship.

Whitetail Institute produces some excellent seed. It's significantly more expensive than you will find elsewhere but seems to be worth it. Every product of theirs that I've tried has grown extremely well. I've used Power Plant,which the deer love but also grows really tall so if you are using a ground blind it can be an issue. I use the tall tine tubers for late season crops... super effective if the deer don't wipe it out when the greens first start sprouting. Their clover is really expensive but grows much better than what I can get at the co-op... it's become by go to food plot. I've also used No Plow back in the woods on a few small spots but the deer wiped it out as soon as it sprouted. So long and short, I've had really good luck w/ their products... I wince every time I buy them but I'm always happy with the results.

I was going to try some of the Whitetail Institute clover on a different plot.  Thought about some of the Power Plant too to compare to the mix I'm putting together.

Well my seeds came in today.  4 business days from order to arrival is pretty good in my opinion.  Seeds came in sealed, clear packaging so you can see what's in itand the seeds look to be in good shape.  Hopefully these do well if I can get the soil right.
