I have some questions about rye grain thought I could get them answered here. I hunt a chunk of private land that sits between 2 corn fields. The owner never let me plant anything before but this year the gasline easment that runs through the middle of the property had a leak. So it was dug up and the woods hinge cut on both sides. Its about 30 ft wide by 80 yards long. The owner told me if I wanted to plant it for deer go ahead but he didn't tell me this till early september. With little time I went to an elevator and bought a 50lb bag of rye grain seed and just threw it out by hand. It now is around 6 inces high and looking nice n green. 1st question is how high does this grow? Does it have to change into seed for the deer to start eating it or maybe sprout? Will it come back again next year or do you reseed? Is this more of a late season food for deer rather then right now? Any help would be appreciated thanks ahead of time.
