I know absolutely nothing about farming and have a question about soy beans.

Some property I hunt in Macomb county has a 40 acre field that is planted in soy beans. We heard from the farmer that the crop failed. The whole crop is still in the field. I picked one of the pods and it has soy beans in it. He said the month of August was too dry for soy beans and he is leaving the crop in the field.

Even though the crop "failed" is there any reason the deer won't still eat these soy beans?

Do soy beans need to grow to a certain point in order to be edible for deer?

I agree with the poster above. That field is going to be a huge magnet for deer and turkeys.

If there is bedding cover within a reasonable distance, you are golden! Should be a tremendous opportunity! Get out there and keep us posted!!!
