I have been hunting where I planted 7 acres of a mix of wheat/oats/DER/Chickory/Clover. The wheat/oats are looking like a finish mower has been working overtime. The warm forecast and rain may give me a boost on growth, but where I am hunting I have to walk right past my tractor and the spreader is still hooked up. Is there anything I can sow this month that will extend the winter feed for these deer?

maybe wheat, maybe cereal rye.
but if youve got a fairly thick stand, just mowed, i wouldn't. the dirt may be putting out forage as fast as it can, overseeding might do nothing more than making more stems and less leaflets. a good product for adding a boost to your forage growth is IW impact its a liquid nitrogen product which is absorbed through the leaves to give that extra little something.

With the warm and wet weather, I fertilized my plots and anyplace else that had a lot of fresh green weeds.

Adding ammonium nitrate to the soil now would certainly be a help. Nitrogen (what you get from ammonium nitrate) is a very volatile chemical. It literally evaporates into the air. It needs to be added to grains about every 3 months.

Not much, although rape usually does better with a little nitrogen mid-season.

Actually a hit of nitrogen on the chicory is very beneficial. In tn,. you can make the chicory survive and grow in a food plot in the winter with a adding of nitrogen. Chicory needs lots of nitrogen,.. which is usually produced by the clovers,. but in the winter adding the nitrogen will keep it going and growing.

The air you breathe is about 79% nitrogen. Just put a box fan outside to blow across your fields.
