I plant the same clover,it does good in all my plots but to tell truth one of the biggest reasons is the blue dye so I can see where im sowing the dang seed lolI've tried different clovers etc without much luck. Then I bought North American Whitetail Institute seed and they are doing well. I take soil samples and follow their instructions. I've planted Imperial Whitetail Clover in one plot and Imperial Whitetail Fusion in another. Both have done really well, I see rabbits feeding on it all the time, I planted in the Fall. Getting ready to plant another plot of Fusion because I had some extra seed. Will see how spring planting goes. Be sure to take soil samples and tell them what you plan to grow. North American Whitetail Institute offers this for around $14. Good Luck.
jmeyers, best thing you can do is drop any saplings you have. Rabbits do better if nothing is over 5-6 feet high. They need thick thick ground cover, and you won’t have that if trees are shading it out. When the sun hits the ground, weeds and briars will come (unfortunately also with more saplings). If you have trees around the perimeter of your 7 acres, they will continually reseed your ground with new saplings, plus they will give hawks and owls a perch from which to hunt your ground. Drop all trees of all sizes if you can. Rabbit farming requires constant attention and a lot of labor.Has anyone tried planting honeysuckle. I have 7 acres that is brush but in the winter time dies amd thins out. I was thinking of trying to do a stand of honeysuckle in some dead ash saplings to try and create a good winter area for feed and cover it will also but up to a clover food plot
If there is a lot of black berry plants at times it is good to cut out spots so they can regrow with new shoots. Its like clearcutting popular woods. JMOLet the sunlight shine and nature does the rest. You can throw out some blackberries from another location to help.
