I found for the area I hunt that soybeans work well especially after the farmers harvest all the surrounding fields. Also, tried putting some rows of turnips in with the beans. Found out the critters liked those too well. Planted the first round at the beginning of August. Plants came up and got eaten back down to the ground in only a few weeks. Reseeded in mid to late September and plants came back up but only to the same fate before bow season started. Think I found something the deer in our area really like. Now if I can only keep them out of it long enough for season during the late summer. Hopefully, next season's planting gets better.
