Default Food Sources

I went to scout the spot I am looking ti go opening day of archery season. It is wedged between a field, acorn trees, and thick holly trees that run from power lines. It is a sweet set! I have a couple questions pertaining to food sources.

1-The field was tilled and re-planted. Some grass is coming up but it is mainly still dirt with a few good patches. Across the gravel road is a much more mature field. Will deer still feed on young grass? The deer I saw while driving were next to the roads (paved) feeding on grass.

2-Any idea on the mast for this year in the eastern states? Beechnuts are falling but I don't see many acorns. Is that typical?

Thanks for your time!!
