Hey everyone.  So Saturday morning i planted a 1/2 acre of winter wheat before the rains.  smile I love the little disc i bought for my four wheeler!  Just curious if anyone has ever used winter wheat as a deer food plot before.  I have heard - read good things about it.

I find they hit it hard when it first comes up, maybe because it is the only young greens around, most of the beans are yellowing or turned already ( I got a patch of beans I planted late that are still green, but that wont last long).  When the wheat gets up about 3” they dont seem to be attracted to it as much.

I feel it’s great to hold them in the late season.  Also, the alfalfa goes bitter after the frost but once the winter wheat is up they turn to it instead.  Don’t get me wrong, corn is king (especially when it gets real cold), but I find them steady in the winter wheat too.

Thanks for the input guys.  Guess I can only hunt it and find out, learn as you go.  Can’t kill a big one unless your in the woods if my favorite saying.

Winter wheat is definitely good to plant for deer in the fall,its a good cover crop especially when mixed in with brassicas such as turnips and radishes. I always incorporate some winter wheat in my fall food plots. I usually plant a mixture of wheat, oats, turnips and radishes and some clover in my fall plot. Deer usually hit it very hard in the fall and winter. Another benefit to it also is when it comes up in the spring and heads out the turkeys take advantage of it also.
