Late season food

Recommended Posts

Took a couple years, but the deer finally started eating the turnips and radishes. They have always eaten the tops but this year they are hammering the tubers. I have some rye and wheat down in addition to clover also. . Considering all the rain we had, the plots are still providing food. I havent put any corn out in awhile and the deer are in it every night.

Some deer wont touch a turnip. 

Others it takes awhile to figure out they can eat them. 

On my place in Illinois, they murder them. 

Dont know why.

i  have said it before  doesn't make sense but deer  eat sweet potatoes by the truckload one place 5 miles a way they won't touch them ... i think deer are just different at least across the state if not the country...

I still have green fields they are feeding off of. I guess over the next couple weeks the freeze will finally brown them

Over the years the US has sent many of its fine young men & women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return, is enough to bury those that did not return. COLIN POWELL

We had the same turnips at our gun club in Clinton and Warren County NJ and the deer never touched them!  A woman at work did like them!
