Evolved Harvest ShotPlot Forage Attractant
one of the best on the market
I have used this product for the past two seasons and have had excellant results. Deer have passed over other food plots to get to this plot. I have seen as many as 15 deer in the plot (1/2 acre) at one time. I plan to plant even more this year.

Good for trails and loggig roads
Have been using this for a couple of years now, trial and error.
Have found that it seems to work best on logging roads and trails.
Will work other places, just found it worked better on trails and logging roads, where gets plenty of sunlight.
I prefer to make several small plots close together, instead of 1 larger plot. So I will create little plots all along the logging road.
I get the deer traveling the logging roads which allows for more shooting opportunities.
We created a plot on the logging road about 60 yards before it runs along a bean/corn/wheat field. Almost always deer hitting that plot before moving on to the crop field.
Because of the several small plots, I believe we are keeping more deer on our place.
Follow the directions.
Lime and fertilizer are key. Get rid of other vegetation prior to planting. Then if able, mix some miracle grow and use a water can to water them with the miracle grow. I tried a little patch with and a little patch without. Miracle grow made a difference.

Didn't get what I thought I paid for!
I purchased this product expecting to get a mixture of rapeseed and turnips. I planted as advertised and true to the package, the foliage came up quickly. The problem is I had 10 acers of turnips and absolutely nothing else. The deer in my area didn't seem to like turnips because there was zero sign of anything eating them. The bags ratio sticker quoted rapeseed at 59% and turnip at 39%. I was very dissapointed with the results based on the ratio I believed I was getting plus the fact that the rapeseed didn't come up at all. I won't be purchasing this product ever again.

Do your research
Before taking the time to plant this product check with some hunting freinds about how the deer respond to these plants. I made two 1/4 acre food plots this year about 100 yards apart both were about 30yrds off a well used deer trail. One with evolved harvest's alfalfa clover mix and the other with shot plot. I left a trail camera in each plot aimed diagonally through the plot. BOth plots looked great and grew well. The camera was left all season I got 100’s of pics in the alfalfa clover and three pics in the shot plot ALL season. And in those pics, the deer were only passing through. I don’t doubt that turnips are great for deer but in my area they never touched them. Just ask around and see if anyone in your area knows what type of food plot your local deer like.
