Should I hunt this plot of turnips? They are starting to turn yellow and looks like rot a little. Will they still eat them?

Yep, late season = food plots. Deer have to eat.

They were killing the turnips on one of our plots. I put a cam on it and got over 100 pics in the last week. Primarily hitting them early morning and late evening. Deer will be feeding trying to replenish there energy spent from the rut so I would either hunt the plot or try to setup where they are entering from.

If there were snow on the ground ..I would say yes..they seem to like them much better after a snow.
They will dig and eat the turnip as well as the top.
That golden hour ,the one before Dark ..everyone on here knows what that is.Set up to where the breeze does not bite you.
A great evening for something big to happen.

Considering the limited food sources available now it sounds like a good plan to me .
