Of course, that’s not to say the deer are completely ignoring other food sources. Bean fields are yellowing up fast around here, and a number of them are already being picked. I’d say at least half of the corn in this area has been combined as well, and I’m seeing a number of deer—albeit mostly does and small bucks—hitting the harvested fields in search of waste grain. In addition, my food plots are still producing some action. The other day, I pulled a card from a camera that’s been monitoring a ladino clover / chicory plot—my go-to blend—since the first of September, and the late evening activity has been pretty consistent. I even captured a cool sequence of these two bucks locked up during the final minutes of shooting light.
