Looking to attract whitetail deer and other wildlife onto your property? Give them a place to bed down and provide shelter and security. This blend of native warm and cool season grasses will provide long lasting habitat. This mix is well-utilized on field edges and along food plots as well as to convert whole fields. Plant and watch the deer check into your native grass hotel. The bronze and gold colors of the grasses in the fall and winter months provide an attractive aesthetic.

This is a better alternative to the introduced species you typically see in bedding mixes. The native grasses look and act similar, but have the added benefit of supporting wildlife. Switch Grass is the larval host for different species of skipper butterflies and song birds and game birds eat the seeds during the fall and winter months.

So, it looks good, provides habitat for deer and other wildlife and you can plant an acre for $75! That is a win-win-win!
