Our deer are big fans of suprisingly- winter rye, corn, okra, beans, clover....and they once devoured our pumpkins. In general, we keep persimmon trees cleaned up for them and plant rye. Though other local hunter swear by a food plot of turnips, clover, millet, and wheat mix for combined deer/turkey plot

The deer around here won't touch a turnip until after a hard frost. My dad sat and watch a doe dig up turnips one evening- said she was very determined to get a really big one exposed and out of the ground.

DH tried to grow black beans out in the field one year - deer ate them before they even got their second set of leaves...
