I have been using Whitetail Institute products for the last 10 years and have seen excellent results. Not only have I seen more deer, I have seen larger deer and on a consistent basis. Last year I established a new plot of Chic Magnet, and we noticed immediate results, and the deer couldn't seem to stay out of it. It consistently looked like it was being mowed off. I even have one buck on video during the rut, which stopped midchase of a doe so that he could eat. On opening weekend of the Wisconsin archery season, my 11-year-old son, Gunner, harvested this 8-pointer from a box blind with a crossbow, which is located over the food plot. This was his first buck, which not only had a nice rack, but it also dressed at 180 pounds. As if all of that wasn't accomplishment enough, the day before, he harvested a turkey from the same blind in the same plot. I just wanted to say thanks, Whitetail Institute, for the great products and Whitetail News magazine. I study the articles because I’m always looking to improve our plots, our land, and our herd health. Thanks again.
Our daughter, Alyssa, has been hunting hard over our Imperial Whitetail Clover plot this year, hoping and waiting for her first deer to walk out. Jan. 11 was the day that this beauty came out for a bite. Alyssa has been helping her parents plant Imperial Whitetail Clover plots for years. This 8 point buck was her first deer!
Michael Hartman – Pennsylvania On the final day of the Pennsylvania’s antlered deer season, our grandson Ian bagged this magnificent 7-pointer in close proximity to a small plot of Whitetail Oats Plus. The Whitetail Oats Plus kept the local herd on our property despite a poor acorn crop. Ian, age 10, was our third grandson to reap the rewards of our Imperial Whitetail Clover, Tall Tine Tubers, Whitetail Oats Plus and Winter-Greens food plots. Each buck sported finer antlers than those bagged by their grandfather during the good old days. In fact, thanks to Whitetail Institute, the good old days are now. ^
