I had a land owner that tilled part of his pasture and planted red clover. Cows would eat it but the deer would utilize it as well. I wouldn't dump a lot of money into it unless you could fence it off.

Fence it off and use a hit wire. Cattle will drill anything a deer will. Dont waste your money till you know you can keep em out of it.
