Planting for the deer June 15, 2011 Michigan Petoskey News-Review

Dirks favorite summer time deer planting is a mix of 20 pounds buckwheat, 2 pounds purple top turnips, 6 pounds red clover and 4 pounds sweet clover per acre. Dirk went on to explain his method of planting.

“I just broadcast the buckwheat and till it in. Then roll the area with a cultipacker (tractor) or 4 wheeler tires also do a good job of packing. Then mix the turnip and clover along with clover inoculant, broadcast lightly and roll in a cross pattern.”

Dirk Shorter, Emmet Conservation District director and owner of Wycamp, a hunting camp here in Emmet County.
