Daytime movement: As mentioned, I'm seeing large winter herds of does hitting field edges in the evening right now. I checked a few of my brassica food plots over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised at the amount of deer sign I found (left). Typically, brassica plots get little attention around here until the final weeks of season in January, and sometimes not until the season closes altogether. This year, though, all of my turnip plots have been grazed to the dirt. Most have been hit so hard that they've not developed actual turnip bulbs, but the young greens keep growing back. Green stuff in general—be it turnips, wheat, or even clover, which has bounced back during this warm spell—is all getting deer attention right now.
