I believe standing beans is one of the best late season crops you can leave for deer. Mix it with wheat and really gets good, anyone else believe in leaving standing beans for food plots? We have left them the last two years and while they are not tearing them up yet, they will be by Jan. I'm sure the farm will be in corn next year which isn't to bad either. The field is only forty acres and is small and narrow, so it almost looks like a big food plot anyway.
