The farmer on my land has cut the tobacco and will be sowing winter wheat as soon as we get some rain. It's about 10 acres, I know the deer will hit the wheat, especially this year, but should I add something else? For instance, should I add 2 lbs rape, 10 lbs clover,etc? Or should I just let the wheat grow by itself?

wheat will be fine but if the farmer didn't object I would throw something out with the wheat, like oats, rape, winter peas. The more you have the plot looking like a buffet table (variety) the more you will attract.

i would not think the farmer would object on dwarf essex rape. it will not affect what he is doing , cause it will be gone by spring.

add in about 10 lbs per acre of der.

Wheat is fine, but as others have mentioned, a few more things, like DER and oats could really help.

we raise tobbaco and we sow wheat mixed with rape and crimson clover which builds the ground and deer love it

But to answer your question YES. Every season I put in a small winter wheat only plot and they hammer it.

A 10 acre wheat field will probably be a deer magnet any year, even with acorns. Especially from December through deer season.
