About Shiitake Creek
We're a family run business, that has operated a mushroom farm and hunted for many years. We noticed deer loved our mushrooms, often times going for them over agriculture fields, vegetative food plots, forbes, mast or pretty much any other food source. This was incredibly irritating as mushroom farmers of course, but it got us thinking, can we use the deer's love of mushrooms for our advantage while hunting?
We got to work and soon learned that yes, you can attract and significantly improve the health of a herd by planting mushrooms, and it's usually easier and requires less maintenance than other types of food plots.
Deer target mushrooms over other food sources because of their unique nutritional makeup that provides deer with a diverse offering of amino acids, vitamins, micro and macro minerals and the protein needed to support lactation, body and improved antler growth. We're excited to share our love of mushrooms with you, and hope to help your hunting ground become even more bountiful.
