About August Drop Chestnuts:
The hybrid Chestnut has become known as the #1 food for big bucks. Hybrid Chestnuts, similar to the Dunstan Chestnuts, provide the nutrients the deer need to become trophies. The Chestnut Trees produce a sweet nut the deer can not pass up. You can bet the deer herd will be back time and time again where ever you plant a Hybrid Chestnut Tree.
These specific genetics are perfect to start inviting deer onto your property in August, a month or two before bow season is getting started. This also allows you to decide WHEN AND WHERE the wildlife eat.
