I believe standing beans is one of the best late season crops you can leave for deer. Mix it with wheat and really gets good, anyone else believe in leaving standing beans for food plots? We have left them the last two years and while they are not tearing them up yet, they will be by Jan. I'm sure the farm will be in corn next year which isn't to bad either. The field is only forty acres and is small and narrow, so it almost looks like a big food plot anyway.

Since I lease out my farm acreage, I've never left any. But this year, the farmer left large amounts on the edges as the yields were down and the later rains left them full of grass and burs. My son took one of a pair of does eating the beans during muzzle season. While nothing has wiped the beans out so far, they have been visited off and on all season. Turkeys have visited as well. I would guess they will be hit hard when everything else is gone.

I haven't found anything better in my area. This would be a great year to have them with the low acorn amounts.

I think the value of standing dead beans as a fall/winter food source is highly over-rated.

Muddyboots,

Depends on what other food sources are available. If little else of high-quality is available, deer will really go for standing dead soybeans (the beans themselves). But time and again, I've seen deer with plenty of other high-quality food sources available simply ignore standing dead beans. Again, over-rated compared to what could be provided.
