No Thanksgiving table is complete without a huge, roasted-to-perfection turkey. As Americans, we love turkey so much that many of us will roast one numerous times throughout the year just to savor that Thanksgiving feeling. But the grocery store turkey that’s probably on your table is a far cry from the one that’s out in […]
Just like a great menu has a lot of options, so does PlotSpike. Our brand of forage seed, which we source, pack and produce ourselves, is nothing like a bad wedding offering of meat or fish.
A food plot is a must-have for hunters and wildlife enthusiasts. Planted in the spring or fall, these areas full of grasses and seeds like forage oats, clover, rape and chicory, that attract wild game like deer and turkeys. Plots can range in size from as small as a garden to as big as an […]
Duck hunters, too, are under a pressure of their own. The number of days left in duck season are numbered–and so are the chances of bagging a bird or two. That said, it’s not over until the proverbial woman of generous proportions has warbled her last notes–and it would appear that roasted duck is a […]

At Ragan and Massey, we get a lot of questions about how to fertilize for food plots: how much, how often, when to start, what to use. In an ideal world, you would have plenty of time to test your soil before planting, but this is rarely the case for most people, who often don’t […]
Another hunting draws near and with it hot coffee, a ready truck, and the long wait for sunrise. Those of us longtime hunters have learned a lesson or two from the blind and tree stand. Here are seven we thought of this morning.
It’s the time of year when we start fielding a lot of questions surrounding the best ways to establish and maintain a food plot. Most of our customers are surprised at how easy it can be to prep, plant, fertilize, and grow.
One of the best rewards in the fall is being able to trade early mornings in the tractor for early mornings in the treestand. We know we’re not alone as we gladly switch our work jeans for camo and blaze orange; harvest-turned-hunting season is one of our favorite times of the year.
