    This video popped up today for me on YouTube. Looks pretty killer at first glance. What are you guys thoughts? I have several areas where this would be great as a "quick fix". Maybe it's been on the market for awhile and I'm just living under a rock.

    I couldn't locate the product on their website as I was trying to found out the seed blend.

    Interesting, but it would only get to two feet tall at my sand farm.

    Yeah, I could see the sorghum in there, just couldn't really tell what the other stuff was.

    Here’s my take.
    Everyone is now selling a screen. And most of them really don’t make much sense (IMO) as far as the seed choices go. And this is a perfect example. During the video, the gentleman mentions its doubles as a food source for deer. Well, if your planting along a road to discourage poaching or shining, it really doesn’t make sense to offer food. If your trying to use the screen to get to or from a stand, food is not what you want in a screen.
    Most companies are adding sun hemp, buckwheat, grain sorghum, sunflowers, corn, even climbing peas or beans. That may be fine inside a plot, or on strips used to break up the interiors of plots (compartments), by not a good idea when your hiding things.
    Just my opinion.

    The other thing to consider is weed control. We use Simizine with our screens. I don’t think beans, sun hemp etc. would make it if you used Simizine. And weed pressure is a major cause of screen failures.

    Was thinking the same thing. I don't want deer eating my screen.

    Sure glad I brought it up. Lots of good input. I do have a couple spots within food plots where I planned on putting in taller strips to break up line of sight for the deer and provide more security within. Seems like this could work well for that, but could have unintended consequences in other areas.

    Sorry for the plug..
    But we sell screens that have zero food in them. And most of ours are still standing today. Pretty tough stuff.

    What's the difference in your Egyptian Wheat and your food plot screen?

    I think I planted your Egyptian wheat this year and it worked awesome!!!

    No need to apologize. I’ll vouch for the Northwoods food plot screen. Worked as advertised for this first time food plotter. Got over 12’ tall in some spots and was still serving its purpose tonight when I was out for late antlerless. No doubt that I’ll be planting more next summer. Thanks for a great product!

    The Screen contains about 10% Egyptian Wheat. The rest is a hybrid sorghum. Some folks as for straight Egyptian wheat so we offer that separate as well.
    Glad it worked out for you guys.

    I would like to see some current pictures of the above screens. Mine were ok , until the early freeze and snow. They were knocked right down during the gun season, as they turned to a marsh grass color.

    I checked on it Saturday, still standing. I’m shooting a video in the next day or two showing how strong it still is yet.
