Plant Tecomate® Perennial Chicory to grow the stuff deer naturally crave! Chicory makes a superb Fall attractant! This highly digestible forb provides protein and energy to the diet while stimulating the rumen to work more efficiently. Chicory is adapted to most regions of the US and has a deep tap root that contains stored carbohydrates which allow the plant to go dormant during extreme winter or summer stresses. Chicory is also very drought tolerant. And because its root helps aid in digestion, deer will frequent chicory plots when overfeeding on corn and acorn crops. Plant alone or combine with other species.
