Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) says food plots are not just for deer, turkeys, and doves.
In fact, various food plot mixtures are as beneficial for pollinators as expensive wildflower plantings. Mixtures of certain annual and perennial plants, including various clovers and chicory, that provide large amounts of high-quality forage for deer and turkeys also provide a continuous source of nectar for pollinators from mid-April through August.

Washington, D.C. – This afternoon, Tuesday, November 26th, 2019, U.S. President Donald J. Trump continued a cherished White House holiday tradition by officially pardoning the National Thanksgiving Turkey.
