I'm going to PA weekend of Sept 14th to plant something. Probably a mix of rye, clover, radishes ect just to get some green up prior to frost.

Few hunters plant oats in OK. Some claim they freeze out but i've never had that happen. Farmers around Amarillo, TX plant a variety of oats called Chilocco; Amarillo has some very bad winter storms.

One place i hunt is surrounded by wheat fields, the deer will walk through the wheat to get to the oats patches.

i agree with you Falcon
The oats stay green all winter , they look better than the wheat and the deer will walk to it ..
we got a 1 1/2" rain last Saturday , and 2" more with the storm moving through today , and still have good chances tomorrow for more
It couldn't be better for the plots we planted dry and the 3 plots i planted last Sunday morning after the rain .
i just cant wait to go see how every thing is growing tomorrow
after the long drought this is a turning point im pumped
