I have a 5 acre plot below my house that sees nightly deer use, and there's some quail around too.
Currently the plot was fall planted to wheat/oats, peas, brassicas, etc. I'd like to offer something that will tempt the deer, as well as provide cover and food for the quail that around. I'm training a pointer pup, so I'm more concerned with the birds. I'd like some wild birds to play with, and some cover for training birds as well.
Anyone ever mixed the milo with beans? Friend of mine suggested adding beans for the deer. The rest of the farm I live on is planted in commercial corn this year. So I know we'll get some deer bedding in the corn and eating in my plot if I can provide them anything attractive.
