Mushroom Food Plots can be used to attract, guide, and influence deer behavior to help your hunt, while also quickly improving soil quality on your hunting land.

MycoHabitat Mushroom Spawn, wood chips, and straw are the only ingredients required to create your mushroom food plot, which will create multiple pounds of food per square foot once established. 

Each Mushroom Food Plot Packs are for the following areas:

Starter Pack (1 five lb bag): 50 sq ft

Double Down Pack (2 five lb bags): 100 sq ft

Honey Hole Pack (5 five lb bags): 250 sq ft

Detailed instructions will be sent along with your MycoHabitat Mushroom Spawn and can be viewed below, but here are a few details on what to expect.

Local sawmills and tree trimming companies will often provide wood chips for a very reasonable price, otherwise they can be obtained from your local lawn and garden center.  It is just fine if the wood chips are mixed with pine needles, small sticks, or other natural debris as long as the load is at least 50% wood chips.  

Pick an area of your property where your bed will be created.  The best locations for mushrooms are areas where moss grows, this means there is adequate moisture and the proper amount of shade.  

It's best to create your mushroom food plot just prior to rain or when the forecast is calling for a rainy period and the soil is above 50 degrees fahrenheit.  Create multiple layers of wood chips, presoaked straw, and spawn on your mushroom bed, alternating between wood chips, soaked straw, and MycoHabitat mushroom spawn similar to making a lasagna. The finished bed should be 4"-6"+ thick.

The amount of growth depends heavily on the amount of rain your area receives and the season.  Expect to see mushrooms anywhere from a few months to the following year after mushroom bed planting.  They will continue to grow as long as temperatures stay in the 50-80 degree range (when above or below this range, they go dormant and will reemerge when the temperature goes in range).
