This is the year of antlers so it makes shooting those bucks we don’t want very easy. If he can’t grow a quality set of antlers this year, he almost certainly never will so whack and stack accordingly.
I have a ranch near Richland Springs and have planted a 5 acre cool season food plot with Oats, Wheat, Clover and Turnips. Neither deer nor hogs are showing any interest in the turnips but are feeding heavely on the other items. Do deer eventually learn to eat turnips?
Great question and yes, once they LEARN what it is, they will eat them. They will, however, wait until the turnip is grown and mature (late winter)before consuming it. So the foraging lasts only one week or so before they are all gone.
I also live and hunt in northern San Saba, less than 15 miles from you. I always throw in a handful of turnips in my food plot mix and they do very well in the loose deep sand.
