In addition to deer, I'm trying to do some feed for the turkeys and grouse where I live. I used part of my foodplot for my potato patch this year. The remaining 4/5 I was going to do sunflowers for a summer crop, bush hog them about Sep, then put in a winter crop. Plowed it, disc'd it, planted with black oil sunflowers. They came up great, I was stoked. Over the last two weeks, the deer have absolutely decimated them. Ate them off right down to the ground. Anybody else on the board ever tried sunflowers and have any advise?
