THF I am the new independent territory rep for Texas for Tecomate Wildlife Systems. I wanted to give you guys first notice that we will have a limited offering of golden millet available this year! For you waterfowl hunters this is as good as it gets. This will go fast so If you have questions or want to pre-order shoot me an email from my signature below.

As the ITR I can work some deals with you so go directly through me for all your ordering. I can also help you with any other seed or food plots questions. I will give a special deal to THF members so let me know how I can help!

I don't know the cost yet I should have that in the next day or so. These will be 50lb bags. It's from Pinnacle out of MS. Given the interest in this especially in the delta regions I just wanted to get the word out as quick as I could to my Texas guys to get a list going as this will sell out quickly.


I can have it delivered wherever you need it to go and can also work a bulk/pallet/truckload deal if you have friends/neighbors that want to purchase also to help everyone with costs.

ive heard a little about it, was going to try some once but heard five oaks quit supplying it. Itll supposedly grow in standing water like jap, has about a 70 day maturity time. How is it any different or better than Japanese?

kinda what I was thinking. Why I want to know what is better about it. be interesting to see what it is. local co-ops are normally in the low forties to low fifties for fifty lbs of Japanese that is that growing seasons seed. hard to beat that, especially if you're a co-op member and get the returns. browntop even cheaper

The difference in this and jap is golden is much more prolific and robust. It produces much more food/tonnage per acre. The seed heads are larger and hold on longer giving you a longer window of attraction and more food to attract and hold more birds for a longer period of time. It can also tolerate higher water levels when established due to it growing taller than jap and often produces a second or third crop.

So if the ultimate goal is more food for birds this produces far more pounds per acre and a more attractive stand to bring in and hold birds

What I see online is a yield of roughly 3,000 lbs per acre for both jap millet and golden. What makes you say that golden produces much more?

I believe Golden re-seeds itself as well. Which is nice

Field experience from some of our senior guys and the outfitters in the delta regions that have been doing this for a long time. That's why we know this is a better option than other millet varieties. And you are correct about reseeding. You might get 3-4 stands out of golden which overall if your looking at cost per acre also makes it a much better option.

There's still a couple moving parts they are working on finalizing before we get pricing. I should know any day now. If you can shoot me an email I'll get you on the list and as soon as we get pricing I'll send it out

I thin I am missing something about golden millet...if you are flooding your golden millet specifically for duck hunting how does the re-seeding and 2nd and 3rd harvest come into play?
