In this blog post I detail a large selection of plant species that one could plant to create a highly diverse and resilient "food plot" or what I call a Wild Game Meadow to provide great year round forage for game animals. These plant species are mainly geared towards the climate of the northern rocky mountain region with cold wet snowy winters and hot dry summers, however many of these plants would do very well in other regions as well. I'm always open to suggestions so if there is another plant that you think would fit into my list or just a general comment, question or insight let me know. I'm all ears.

Does chufa grow near you?

Here's a few related sites, mostly for turkeys but also other game.

Thanks for the info.  I believe my property is probably too dry for Chufa based on what I've read, but I may be able to grow it around the edges of a pond.

I am familiar with Craig Harper and have bought his book on early succsessional habitats. He is a great resource.

I do have quite a few turkeys in my area so this is some really helpful info thanks.
