Arkansas Subsidy Offer Spring 2013

Dear Arkansas Member:

The Arkansas State Chapter Board of Directors is pleased to offer its members the opportunity to purchase seed, and seedlings at a subsidized price. Members are limited based on their level of membership listed on the order form. The Arkansas State Hunting Heritage Super Fund will pay 50% of the products and shipping charges.

All orders are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Quantities are limited on subsidized products due to the dollars allocated to the program. For shipping allow 2 to 3 weeks from the date your order is entered in our system. Additional products may be purchased in unlimited quantities using the non subsidized portion of the order form.

Turkey Gold® Chufa produces small nut-like tubers that turkeys scratch out of the ground. Once birds find the tubers in the fall, they keep coming back. A 50-pound bag of seed will cover approximately 1 acre. Select an open area that receives full sunlight. Sandy or loamy soils are preferred. Prepare the seedbed by plowing and disking. Have soil tested to determine exact amounts of lime and fertilizer to add. If you can not get the soil tested, use 400 pounds of 10-10-10 or 13-13-13 fertilizer and 1,000 pounds of lime per acre. Soil pH should be between 6.4 - 7.2. Broadcast, May through mid July, at a rate of 40-50 pounds per acre and plant at a depth of 1 to 1 ½ inches.

Triple Threat Clover Strut and Rut® Mix is a concentrated, pre-inoculated clover mix including Crimson, Patriot, and Durana clovers. All seeds in this mix are legumes, which means that you will be providing the best quality food and cover conditions for wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife on your property. This mix of seed is adapted to most sites and will stay established for several years with proper maintenance. Prepare the seedbed by disking or harrowing the ground. Create a smooth seedbed. Always do a soil test! Add the recommended amounts of lime and fertilizer. Incorporate both into the soil. Broadcast seed over one acre. Cover seed ¼” deep using a drag or cultipacker to ensure good seed to soil contact. Soil pH should be 6.0 to 7.0. Normally can be planted early fall or early spring depending on location. Check with local Extension Office for proper seeding dates.

Nuttall Oak is a large tree with swollen base and open crown of spreading to horizontal or slightly drooping branches. Important mast producer for ducks, turkeys, deer & squirrels. A strong consistent producer that holds acorns well into January, acorn crop failure is rare. Habitat: Wet clay soils along stream banks & flood prone areas. Also grown as an ornamental in varying soil conditions.

Shummard Oak is a pyramidal tree becoming more spreading at maturity. This tree has been used for reforestation in bottom land and up land sites, including mine spoils. Heavy acorn producer eaten by most wild game species. Beautiful fall color. Habitat: well-drained soils along streams and rivers; also on deep upland sites, with stands alkaline soils with pH above 7.

Every bag purchased results in an acre of quality wild turkey brood habitat being established. This helps the State Chapter address a key issue identified in our state strategy of the North American Wild Turkey Management Plan. Your membership and financial support at our banquets helps make this program possible and allows the chapter to address high priority habitat needs in our state. THANK YOU!
