Any of you guys ever planted them for deer? My local feed store is stocking them now I bought a pound today to plant. Guy said the plants got huge and deer love them.

I been wondering the same thin Chad. I have used the "the Crush sugar beet powder" and the deer seem to love it. But I have had anyone in our area that has seeds for me to try... Keep us posted of the progress.....

The sugar beets didn't last long enough to find out ES. The rye was doing great but the deer and the 7° weather have taking toll on it.
