Im in a Weed ID class right now but am just learning so take this for what its worth. If you can find a spine on the stems near a node then I would call that spiny amaranth. If no spines, then redroot pigweed. Again, just my guess.

if its pigweed, you need to dig up plant and haul it away, the pigweed in west tennessee is resistant to roundup and is taking over some areas, approximately 200,000 seed per mature plant

Redroot Pigweed doesnt have spines so rules that out. Do a google image search of spiny amaranth.

It is spiny pigweed (Amaranthus spinosus) and is one of the worst culprits in my garden. Get rid of it quick, it will drop thousands of seeds.

Pigweed and Amaranth are the same thing...

Edit: here is some useful info - http://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/BP/WS-44-W.pdf

it deserves the name Pigweed in my garden, it's like wild pigs and you can't get rid of it. You should see the carpet of it in the spring after the ground has been tilled and millions of seeds are turned up....

You would be correct!

we have been able to kill some of it in the fall with gly, at the same time its now a mature plant, I wonder what the seeds will do

the seeds will come up in the thousands next spring, I guarantee it, unless you use a lot of pre-emergent or something. If the ground is tilled it's even worse because every time you till it will turn up new seeds.

My food plots, especially the better soil ones, are taken over every summer by Perilla Mint, also known as Beefsteak Weed:

Deer rarely eat any plants in the mint family.
