The collaboration with Grandpa Ray Outdoors owner John O'Brion will bring the puzzle of soil, seed, and habitat to life in simple concepts that you can implement today.

Grandpa Ray's specializes in providing the best nutrition for the whitetail deer on your property starting with the soil. We do this with offering a full line of high-quality food plot seed, plant foods and minerals.

We go the extra mile by helping you understand the best way to use our products with our consulting services.

We have field staff who have many years of planting food plots and developing habitat on their own properties. There are over 45 research plots across the US. We also have an educational plot in South central Wisconsin that hosts events and is also open to the public. We even have an organic education plot in Southwest Wisconsin.

Our approach goes beyond attraction; we offer a year-round program of nutrition and food plot education that is natural and innovative. Your bucks will grow larger racks but also your does and fawns will grow strong and healthy which helps winter survival as well as handling yearlong stresses.

Together we can help you achieve the next level in whitetail deer management.
We are not about a fancy name or package. We work with you to give you specific recommendations for your own properties.
