But this is more than a photo of a great big whitetail; it also tells a story. You'll note that the buck is walking through a soybean field, one of the premier summer food sources in the region. Due to a late, wet, spring, many ag fields never got planted this year, and those that did grow a crop are behind in normal growth. This is going to have a huge impact on deer hunting this fall, at least for those who hunt on or near farms. Whitetails are never far from food, and if you're hunting a farm that didn't get planted or has a suffering crop, you may see fewer deer than normal and scout harder for the ones you can hunt.
