What Is Palatability?

Palatability is a word that describes how much deer like something. In food plots, you want plants with high palatable. After all, the whole idea is to attract deer to the plots and get them to eat whatever is in them. But, high palatability is a mixed blessing. The more palatable a plant is, the harder to establish; the less palatable a plant is, the easier to grow. This is why weeds do so well – the deer aren’t eating them. Unless you understand all this, you can be fooled by what you see after planting a food plot. A lust, pristine food plot may look that way because deer are eating very little of it. Certainly, Tecomate could come up with seeds that could produce tons of great looking biomass but be moderately browsed. But, we believe food plots should be just that – food plots. They should consist of highly palatable plants that deer actually eat with relish.

Horns-A-Plenty Testimonials

“As a private wildlife consultant I have used mineral supplements before, but never have I found one that even comes close to yours on content, acceptability and durability when fed uncovered. I will highly recommend HORNS- A-PLENTY to my clients.”

Protecting Your Investments Of Food Plots

Customarily food plots were only planted in the fall and winter months for attracting and holding deer in an area. It is now becoming a popular practice throughout the United States to plant summer food plots for deer.

The size of these plots range from pipelines to literally hundreds of acres.

Warm season food plots are planted for the most part with high protein legumes such as lablab, cowpeas, clovers and numerous other varieties.
