They are looking great! I am getting pictures of does eating in it
and they are keeping the peas cleaned up. They are just now really fixing to start making heavy amounts of peas! They are full of blooms!

looking good...I tried clay peas last year and the deer hammered my 3 acre plot. I thought about getting an electric fence or plot saver system for next year. Are you leaving it stand for hunting season?

Yep.... is this the 1st year planting them?

I'd be willing to bet...one day soon you'll go back and you'll just see stems left.

j-bo, this is my first year to plant them. Its not but about 2 acre plot so I am surprised that they are not already gone!
I think the only thing that is keeping them from eating them up yet is
that I have 2 pear trees and an apple tree that they are hitting real hard!
I planted these trees when I was a kid and they are all 3 making real heavy crops most every year!

This is not my only peas! I have about a 350 yard power line planted and they are almost doing as good as this plot.

Yep.. 1st year luck! I had it too, till I went back 1 week later one time and had nothing but stems left. This year, I didn't get a good growth at all as they just about wiped them all out at 2 leaf stage. I do have some plants, but they only have a leaf here and there.

Once they know what they are.. it's over. ;)

Before, and they were like this for 6 weeks or so:

After, one week later than above photo:

That's crazy how fast they killed that plot. That's the only issue I have with peas and soybeans. The eagle beans regenerate when they eat them I've read but I hate to spend that kind of money on the eagle beans and have them demolish them or have them not grow. Guess it's good that they are at least eating them.

if u have the TIME and acreage, thats y its always good idea to plant that kind of stuff at different times....plant one section/plot right now, one section one or 2 weeks from now then plant another section 1 or 2 weeks from now etc.......it allows different sections to mature at different times which makes for more food for the deer for a longer period of time...

I looked at my peas this morning. I took lazyghost with
me to look around at my place. The deer are hammering the peas hard! It is big enough plot so they have not eat it to the ground. Peas and blooms still all over the plot!
You can see the ground now and before you couldnt because they were so tall! We re set some game cams
so now maybe i will get more than a bunch of does on them!
I didnt think to get any pictures, but I will see how much will be left when I go back in few weeks!

Has anyone ever tried the Austrian Winter Peas, they are about Ten Dollars cheaper than the Clay Peas.
