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

They look fine for now. Can't hurt to try.

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.
