Antler King or Secret Spot??

So my property just finished getting cut about 2 weeks ago, and i'm going to plant the log landing in something. It's roughly 1/2-3/4 lot, that will get a lot of sunlight.

I've been looking at different things, and called both companies. Antler King suggested their Honey Hole/Slam Dunk. Whitetail Institute suggested Secret Spot.


It's mountain ground, I don't know what the PH level is, but I know Secret Spot has a PH Booster, and the guy from Antler King suggested Plot Max.


I'm open to suggestions! Thanks!

Spend $10ish and do a soil test through Penn State or another avenue. That will tell you what you will be able to plant this fall.

Otherwise, you may be wasting your money on seed that will not grow very well.

Why don't you try winter rye or wheat for a first time plot Germitnates quick and will improve your soil for next year

I would second winter rye. Secret Spot is mostly rye grass which you really don't want.

I decided to do a Soil Test through Whitetail Institute. Just sent it in this morning.

I think you will be glad you did!

And I concur that rye is a great choice, as long as you are prepared to deal with it next spring. It makes a lot of biomass when it gets to maturity, but the roots are a great soil builder for next year's plot.
