Deer tore up my plot!

    Pulled up to the food plot Saturday to retrieve my feeder, and found what looked like cow trails going into both plots. The rear plot looked like hogs had been in there and plum tore it up. The purple top turnips finally came up and they were hitting them hard. Of course I forgot the camera at the house. :banghead:

    Woods - without pics we can't either verify or acknowledge your claim? :D:D

    I've been there done that! In fact, I did that last Friday, got all the way out to the farm and forgot my camera.

    I'd be pissed if I were you. I'd go out there with all your friends and poach all them deer so they'll quit eating them food plots.

    Sounds like a good problem to have actually...

    I hunted the plots and had my cam out most of the season and didn't see a deer. Of course they wait till after the season to come and feed on my turnips. :stickfight:

    Guess I better go and check my turnips. As of about 3 weeks ago, they were just heaved up on the ground begging to be eaten - and being ignored.

    This was a bad winter for brassicas plots, far too mild as far as I'm concerned. Also I wouldn't be too concerned if they don't eat the bulbs, sometimes they will and sometimes they won't. The greens are what you should expect them to eat, or at least hope that they do.
