Bowhunting over soybeans

Postby Bushape » Mon Apr 29, 2019 12:55 pm

Expecting farmers to plant beans on our lease this year and I was wondering if I can expect beans in Sept. to still be drawing deer in? I know at a certain point they start turning bitter.

Usually stay in the beans until the corn is harvested or your neighbors start feeding them.

When beans are planted on the property I hunt, the deer will wear it out until the leaves turn yellow. Then they pretty much leave it alone until the bean pods are dried and ready for harvest, or already harvested and they're picking up beans off the ground.

Deer will hit the beans when they first sprout and through the growing cycle. After maturity a lot depends on other available food sources both agriculturally and natural. When they're feeding on them during early archery don't be surprised to see them standing there feeding and then just drop out of sight while bedding right there. Also once the beans have been picked (dependent on how late in the year) many will sprout laying on the ground and the deer will feed on them.
