I Am going to add some clover to my fall mix to try and extend the usefulness of the plot into the spring early summer. For you guys that have used these clover which one do you prefer. Which one last longest into the summer produces the most forage and the deer eat the best. How many pounds do you mix in with your other seed per acre. On that note how many pounds of wheat oats rye or whatever grain you use do you plant of that per acre when you mix the clover.


If you're gonna be stupid you better be tough.

I didn't see a lot of deer usage in crimson clover I had, but the Yuchi Arrowleaf was fed on a good bit.

Really like arrowleaf, excellent reseeder. Still have some coming up in plots where it hasn't been planted in several years. Have no experience with red clover.

Never planted red but I really like the arrow leaf. Deer do too. It’s still growing like crazy right now. 3 feet tall in some places.

Last fall I did Apache Arrowleaf, a Red clover and tried Berseem clover for the first time. They were doing great and browsed last time I was up.

I like 3-4 types of clovers. Some that start off fast for the fall and then others that take you into late spring and summer. I like 1-2 annuals and 1 or 2 perennials in the mix. My favorite mix for clover has been Arrow leaf, Mihi Persian, and Durana.

I've spent most of the money I've made in my lifetime on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.....

Red clover is extensively used for cow pastures. I've seen it hold up OK in the summer. Not sure how much deer like it.

One thing to keep in mind is that red clover generally likes soil with a pH above 6, which knocks out a ton of soils in Alabama, unless properly amended. Otherwise, red clover is an excellent clover for deer, and persists well into the summer, unlike crimson. So, if you have good soil, go for it.

I have fairly acidic soil and I haven't had any problem getting the red clover to grow, even in my first year plantings. one thing I like about the red clover is it's aromatic, which means it puts off a sweet smell which could attract a deer from further away IMO
