the 80 acres above, all the fields surrounding last year had standing beans , would you plant corn in the food plots and leave it up during deer season?

suggestions??

You don't need grain, you need green. You don't have enough acres for corn. Spend your money on soil test, lime and fertilizer as needed, and quality seed blend

White Dutch clover grows good in low, moist places, but it doesn't produce the volume of some other clovers.  It also holds up well to clipping and reseeds itself well.  It the kind of clover you see growing in your yard.

I would no doubt go green doug cause the deer will be looking for something green and tender. If they plant the fields around you and harvest them they will leave some behind that gets thrown out of the combine and the deer can eat it if they wish so planting corn wouldn't really do you any good plus when the corn is gone its just gone but a winter plant will continue to grow and provide plenty of food.
