I like a mix of brassica's. I like rape, radish, sugar beets and purple top turnips. They will readily eat the radish, rape and sugar beets, but will wait until later after frost to sweeten up the turnips. I like that about the turnips because it gives them something to eat late season.

It feeds a lot of mouths. But it's held up fairly well. Half of it will get sun hemp plus buckwheat and ICP this spring. Other half gets prison millett

Guys, those are some fine looking brassica's. I wish I had larger plots. I'm hoping to make them bigger next year. They have eaten mine down to the dirt.

Did they start hitting it after the first freeze.

The same for me on the radishes I planted this year they started eating them soon as they came up. However when the weather turned cooler and they quit growing they were wiped out pretty quick. If you have a good many deer and plots an acre or smaller I don't think you will ever be able to plant them and gun hunt over them. Now if you have some 5+ acre plots of very few deer. I think they would be awesome to hunt over. The deer love them.

If you have small plots and lots of deer you're wasting time on about anything getting growth. Just a fact

Ive had problems with deer turning their noses up a different things the first year I plant. They didnt even eat all their corn the first year I planted it, I guess 4yrs ago. But I planted a small spot of daikon radishes this year just to test the water, they tore em up. I will be planting more of them next year, or might try the sodbuster. Call me stupid, but I didnt realize they would eat radish leaves, I assumed they just ate the radishes like me.

I wish I had videos from this season. I've watched deer gorge themselves on leaves and on the root too.
