Whitetail Institute RECORD BOOK BUCKS… Michael Robinson – Missouri
I have been planting Winter-Greens and Beets & Greens at my house for the past 4 years and have killed two giants (one 180 incher) over them. It’s a small plot in a country/suburb environment and the deer hammer it. We call it the “killing field.” It’s less than 1/4acre and we have seen 17 deer in it at one time. If you look close at one of the enclosed pictures you can see the deer trying to get back into the food plot at the top of the hill (top left) despite us. I killed the 180 on my 51st birthday, what a day!

Bill Knight – Iowa Just wanted to thank Whitetail Institute for doing it again. We’ve used Imperial Whitetail Clover for over 20 years with great results. We’ve killed dozens of Pope & Young and bigger bucks. Whitetail News published a photo of my 191 inch buck a year or so ago and a photo of a 200-plus inch buck that we killed was on the cover a few years before that. We’ve also had great results with Winter-Greens, Tall Tine Tubers and Extreme. This past season, I decided to replant one of my Imperial Whitetail Clover fields and when I called the Whitetail Institute, one of their consultants recommended I rotate Whitetail Oats Plus in this fall and come back next year and replant the Imperial Whitetail Clover. He said the Whitetail Oats Plus would benefit from the nitrogen the clover had left in the soil and that the deer would love it. Based on the results we’ve had with other Whitetail Institute products; I took his recommendation and as they say a picture is worth 1,000 words. Photos 1 and 2 are from Nov. 3 and show Iowa deer and turkey love Whitetail Oats Plus. Having all those does piling into the Whitetail Oats Plus paid off on Nov. 14. I snuck in and was hunting about 100 yards from one of my Whitetail Oats Plus plots that morning and the woods were alive with deer. Soon after getting in my stand the deer started to come by. They headed from the Whitetail Oats Plus to a bedding area. The buck in photo 3 scores 162 inches and he was cruising along coming from the Whitetail Oats Plus and looking for a hot doe and he gave me a 20-yard shot with my bow. (Photo 4) shows a 150-plus inch class buck my friend, Doug killed on our property. Whitetail Institute, you have another winner with Whitetail Oats Plus and thanks for all you do.
