I've planted Bob Oats for years here in West Tn and my deer have loved them. They are alot cheaper the the Buck Forage Oats. Another problem I had with forage oats were they seem to have a bigger husk on them and would clog up in the spreader easily and frequent. I never saw where the forage oats were ate on any better then the bob oats. Bob oats are a lot cheaper too. I think I paid $12 a bag for them at our farm supply. I think the key with any foodplot is to fertilize them. If you don't then your wasting your time and money.
I have planted the Buck Forage Oats in the past and the deer on our place seem to like them more than the mixes. I saw that Plot Spikes Oats at TS and I think we are going to give them a try this year.
