Not necessarily true…..and in this case I can verify with certainty that its not. This is where folks commonly make the mistake of assuming that because someone sees “X” number of deer or can’t grow seed “A” in a food plot, etc…..that they automatically have too many deer and need to shoot some or something else is wrong……How about this possibility……Maybe the understory habitat around me is prime and and therefore able to support a very high deer density…..a deer density that has no issue wiping out 2 acres of buckwheat in a field that they frequently visit.

Every situation needs to be assessed individually to determine what’s too many and such. There’s an abundance of prime native understory vegetation pretty much year round on my place indicating that I don’t have too many deer. Just about all of them that I see are really healthy looking too….does commonly with twins.

Well, we have seen some of the pictures you've posted with your plot full of deer. LOL All I know, is everything you read about buckwheat is that it is NOT a preferred food source. I have a good deer density and they don't hammer my 1/10th acre plots. Strange.

Maybe it’s a difference in how concentrated the deer are to my field in comparison to yours. Aren’t you in an area with a decent amount of closed canopy hardwoods? Maybe the deer that are visiting your fields during the summer are using a lot bigger area for their home range during that time than what mine are…..That would mean that the frequency in which they passed through and utilized the field could possibly be less. I damn near have to keep my does shooed off the porch they stay held so tight. I just don’t think they ever go anywhere much other than a short stroll back into the thickets to lay down. That has my field seeing constant activity day to day….week to week….

The hardwood closed canopy was on my mountain property. I sold it. We still have my brothersa property up there. This is on my club that borders the coosa river. It's 20 year old pine with a lot of open area's as well. It has a lot of plant diversity. They haven't even started hammering my 3/4 acre pea patch yet.
