    A 30" x 40' roll for $40.00?


    That calculates to an area of 0.00229 of an acre.

    Which means it costs $17,424 per acre of food plot.


    I'd say that is pretty expensive.


    Obviously nobody is going to use this for a entire acre but it shows how expensive it is for the area you are covering.

    Let’s say you only do 0.2 of an acre that is still going to cost $3,484.80.



    At least it comes with free shipping. ;)

    Think about how small of an area that is. 40' is only 13.3 yards. And it only covers 2.5' wide.



    You would need 435 of them to cover an acre. LOL

    I saw roll out sunflowers. Thought about trying that. Problem is they won't make it past knee high around here.

    The only reason they make this is because in some places you cant bait. Some people dont have the knowledge or resources to do a food plot. So they create this so people can buy a handful and its basically a "legal bait pile"

    What will they come up with next?!!! the deer hunting industry is getting ridiculous. You would be better off clear cutting a half acre and producing 500+ lbs of browse lol . but tecomate cant sell chainsaw fuel for 50$ an acre.

    I actually bought something like this once. it wasn't exactly the same and I can't remember who made it. It was clearance for next to nothing and I think it covered a 20X20 area. I put it out under one of my stands and it actually came up pretty decent. Had clover and some other stuff in it. The clover lasted and stayed until I tilled it up the next fall. I guess if you no other options and have more money than sense I'd would work, but If you are considering this, I'd take a trip over to midwest whitetails and watch his shows on the "poor mans foodplot." He does a about a 1/4 to 1/2 acre with nothing but tools that most people should already have.
