The Hunting Plot that Keeps on Giving

Baton Rouge, LA (March 9, 2017) – Brassicas are a family of fast-growing leafy-green forage annuals that include turnips, beets, rapes and kales. In addition to their highly palatable and digestible tops, some – like turnips and beets – also produce attractive root crops. Cool-season brassicas remain green and upright throughout the winter, and are heavily used by deer wherever they exist. In addition to providing critical late-season forage, their cold-season hardiness, sweetness (which increases with cooling temperatures) and high protein content make them an ideal choice for hunting plots.

Evolved Harvest, the industry leader and expert in wildlife nutrition, offers hunters and professional wildlife managers a variety of high-performance forage-grade Brassica seed blends. New for 2017, Evolved introduces Shot Plot, an exceptionally fast-growing, high protein forage turnip / forage rape blend that’s ideal for late-season hunting plots, while providing loads of critical nutrition for deer during the winter hardship period. When properly planted and managed, each 10-lb. bag of Shot Plot seed is capable of producing an astounding 16 tons of forage.

The forage-grade turnips contained in Shot Plot provide deer with a double-dose of attraction and nutrition. Like most brassicas, the leafy turnip tops progressively convert their starches into sugars as they grow and mature – becoming especially sweet after the first few frosts. They’ll remain sweet, palatable and highly digestible long into winter when other food sources become much more scarce, ensuring they’ll be hit hard by deer. The second form of forage comes from the taproots (turnips) just below the ground’s surface. Deer know these energy bombs are there, and will eagerly dig them up – even when covered by deep snow – providing an excellent source of late-season nutrition to help deer precisely when they need it most.

Shot Plot’s high-yield rapes are simple to grow, producing loads of leafy-green nutrition that deer crave. Reaching heights up to 24” just 45 days after planting, this fast-growing high-quality vegetation also gets sweeter with age – helping ensure that your Shot Plot hunting plot reaches its peak attraction during the hunting season.

 Evolved Harvest’s Shot Plot is made in the USA.
