Yes, only because one field by the lake has some thick weeds

I plan on trying the broadcast method. Anyone ever mix soybeans in with your sunflowers for a dual purpose field?

Not specifically but Whitetail Institutes "No Plow" and Pennington Seeds "Spring/Summer Deer Mix" do both contain a vine soybean and sunflowers and I've planted a fair amount of both companies version of this same planting. I've never thought of the sunflowers as beneficial to deer though as they are in this mix more as a structure for the vine beans to grow up on rather than to be eaten. Birds generally eat all my sunflowers in the end. Regardless of what eats them, I like to grow sunflowers just to look at the big colorfull blooms

some years at Chaney if its dry enough and I am still hooked to planter I will plant leftover sunflower seed on the road sides, as soon as the plants make sunflower heads the deer will destroy the plants by eating the entire head off of plant

My sunflower planting will not be for hunting. Figured I'd try and throw some soybeans in there for the backyard deer.
