Real Worlds “Whitetail Harvest Salad” has been a fan favorite for years because it is easy to grow and extremely attractive. This blend contains three cereal grains and Austrian Winter Peas. The variety of Austrian Winter Peas we use is extremely winter hardy. The deer will hammer the cereal grains when weather conditions have deer going to green food sources. Don’t be misled by other brands that mix annuals and perennials in their fall-planted seed blends or market no-till products. Harvest Salad comes in a 50# bag which is enough to plant 1 acre.
When Harvest Salad and Plot Topper are combined it gives you 12 plant species in the same plot. We call it the “Deadly Dozen”. With this combination there will always be multiple plants within the plot that are highly palatable to the deer from the time it first germinates until the following spring. Some of the plants will really draw the deer in early, other plants will attract during the late fall and still others will become more attractive during the late season after there has been a hard freeze.
