I normally like to plant some winter wheat in September as a draw for the spring turkey season......but was working out of state last fall and didnt get it done.
Does anybody know if I could possibly plant some kind of oats in March and have something to draw them by late April? I have a clover plot and an Alfalfa plot but the turkeys havent seemed too impressed by those in the past.

Any particular type?
I have heard the term "spring oats" is there a difference?
Thanks
Most are a spring oat. There are a couple of varieties that are called winter oats,,but the majority are spring oat. If you go to the coop and buy a bin run oat,,it will most likely be a south dakota spring oat. If you want to spend a couple a bucks extra to get a good clean oat,,go to Orschelns and buy the cleaned whole oat . It will be higher than bin run,,but alittle cheaper than a cleaned seed oat. Cargill does a good job of cleaning there grains and the lack of trash will make drilling or broadcasting them alot easier.
