Even the best food plot seed blend will not yield results without quality soil. Antler Dirt® helps create rich, dark, moisture holding soil that’s necessary for growing great food plots and giant antlers.

Forage plants are simply nutrient transfer agents. These nutrients must first be in the soil to produce quality forage and quality deer. Most food plots, however, are located in poor, nutrient-depleted soil. By adding Antler Dirt and the beneficial microbes it includes, you can develop healthy soil that provides high quality nutrients for deer. Healthier soil, like that found in in the prairie states of Kansas, Iowa, and Illinois result in:

  • Superior plant growth
  • Larger deer
  • More impressive antlers
  • Long-term fertility
  • Plots with more drought tolerance & pest resistance

Antler Dirt® is packed with a specific formulation to produce the quality, drought resistant forage necessary to grow larger antlers, bigger deer, and healthier fawns.

APPLICATION

Large Food Plots:

Apply 1-2 tons of Antler Dirt®. We recommend an initial application of 2 tons per acre for best results.

Hidey-hole Food Plots (1,000 square feet):

  1. Remove leaves/weeds with a leaf blower/herbicide, etc.
  2. If necessary to achieve seed to soil contact, lightly work soil using a rake or small disc.
  3. Spread Antler Dirt® at the rate of 50 to 100 pounds per 1,000 square feet.
  4. Broadcast the seed and insure seed to soil contact by rolling or raking. Note: It’s best to plant just before a rain as the rain helps insure seed to soil contact and eliminates the need for rolling or raking.

INGREDIENTS

Processed manure, fine ground mined limestone, mined gypsum.

A Soil Supplement For Wildlife Food Plots

  • Soil is the foundation of everything that grows, including deer!
  • Antler Dirt® promotes strong plant growth of your food plot varieties.
  • Antler Dirt® is rich in organic matter which is food for the micro and macro organisms in our soils. The organisms break down (eat) the organic matter which is what releases the molecules of food to plants.
  • Fosters long-term soil health.
  • Holds nutrients for plants, increases organic matter, helps soil hold water and nutrients
  • Antler Dirt® is Environmentally Safe & Sustainable. Synthetic fertilizers feed only the plant. Antler Dirt® is a composted soil amendment that builds and repairs your soil in addition to feeding the plants on which the deer feed.
  • If your soil lacks organic material, is compacted or doesn’t retain water, Antler Dirt® is a great soil amendment as it contains humified compost. Different soil types will need different applications of Antler Dirt®. A soil test is recommended to determine the appropriate rate for your specific property.

Hunters and wildlife managers plant food plots primarily for two reasons: as an attractant for easier viewing and hunting or to provide the necessary nutrition to grow healthy, big deer. Food plot farmers carefully select the seed varieties to plant to meet these goals, selecting plants known for their preference by deer and their high protein and carbohydrate levels. In creating food plots an important element to consider is the quality of the soil. Quality soil can be directly correlated to bigger deer. For illustration, look at the locations of bucks entered in the Boone and Crockett record book and soybean yield by county. These maps are very similar! Reason being quality soil equals quality forage, and quality forage equals quality deer.

Both antler and fawn development are closely correlated to the amount of quality forage made available to the deer herd in free ranging environments. The most economical method to provide a deer herd with the highest nutritional value is to provide the soil with its desired amendments found via a soil analyses.

Adding the appropriate amounts of Antler Dirt®—suggested via soil analysis—will greatly increase the quantity and quality of forage produced. Additionally, healthy plants are more resistant to drought and pests.

Why Antler Dirt®?

Even the best food plot seed blend will not yield the best results without the best possible soil. Antler Dirt® food plot blends help create rich, dark, moisture holding soil that’s necessary for growing nutritious forage.

It’s important to realize that forage plants are only nutrient transfer agents. These nutrients must first be in the soil to produce quality forage and quality deer. Most food plots, however, are located in poor, nutrient-depleted soil. By adding Antler Dirt®, you can develop healthy soil that provides high quality nutrients for deer. Healthier soil, like that found in in the prairie states of Kansas, Iowa, and Illinois result in:

  • Superior plant growth
  • More impressive antlers
  • Larger deer
  • Plots with more drought tolerance & pest resistance

How To Use and Apply Antler Dirt®

Antler Dirt® boosts plant growth in your food plots and increases uptake of the minerals that produce the large antlers from the soil.

Food Plots

Apply 1-2 tons of Antler Dirt® per acre in early spring or late fall. (We highly recommend an initial application of 2 tons per acre for best results.) A soil test is recommended to ensure the best results.

Hidey-hole instructions (1,000 square feet):

  1. Blow leaves away with a leaf blower.
  2. Lightly work soil using a rake or small disc.
  3. Spread Antler Dirt® at the rate of 50 to 100 pounds per 1,000 square feet.
  4. Sow seed and cover seed by rolling or raking.
  5. It’s best to plant just before a rain as the rain helps cover exposed seed by splashing dirt that covers the seed eliminating the need for rolling or raking.

“This is a product I have used for years with amazing results. My food plots are planted in typical poor, rocky soil in the Ozark Mountains. With Antler Dirt my plots are as lush and vibrant as plots in the great soils of Iowa or other trophy deer producing areas! Antler Dirt has proven to be a superior alternative to manufactured inorganic fertilizers that I’ve tried.
