Kevin, I have seen the same thing with salts/blocks. Eat them on one property and not touch them on the next..

On a brighter note, I did watch three feed on the rape yesterday evening. A mother and two button bucks. She never came close enough and both fawns were spot free so I would have "tried" to take her. lol

They stayed mainly in the clover/BF oats but did wonder over to the rape before heading out at dark.

We have produced a 200 inch deer last yr and several that are approaching the 180 inch mark this season.

Are those big deer in TN or some other state?

Kevin,.. with as much soybean as you had planted ,you will not see much browse on the buckwheat. Soybean is so highly preferred that they will target it first and foremost in the summer. Buckwheat is great for us plotters that have smaller plots ,.. 1/2 acre to 2 acres. Soybean will be wiped out on plots this size,.. so buckwheat is the best alternative.

The funny thing about buckwheat,.. the deer hammered on my place in the summer,... and are really hammering it on my place when i redisced it back in and sowed it in with my other plots also. Did you turn your summer plot of buckwheat back under for another planting??

no i bush hogged and got an awesome stand of buckwheat volunteer. It looks awesome i hunted daylight to dark a week ago over it and nary a deer.

now it will die in about 10 days or so and they will kill it. butonly the seeds. not the forage.
