I'm just 20 miles west of you. Posted this a couple weeks ago. I just get the mixed seed bags at Tractor Supply and it works great every year:

I have a place in Fannin County and agree with everything said above. One thing though -- disk in a 15-15-15 fertilizer before you spread the seed. I've had good results with wheat, oats, clover and peas. But the fertilizer makes all of the difference!

I personally think its hard to beat wheat or oats. Maybe mix the 2, and throw in some winter peas. I have planted the deer blends many times, and cannot see where the deer are more attracted to it, than the grain.

I am in Lamar. We started planting last season. So far what has done well with no till and little effort has been Austrian Winter Peas, Oats and Crimson Clover. This is a no till plot. I have bought my last bag of corn. Personally I prefer to go to a seed store so I know what I am getting.

Nice, Greg. Proof is in the the pudding. Nice looking plots and deer.
