Got started on the food plot for the 2019 season. Weeds were so tall you could barely see the blind at the end of the field. Going to spray it and kill it then plant buckwheat. I've never planted buckwheat before. Planted soybeans last year in this field and they came up about 6" high and got murdered. Tried turnips for late season and that didn't work.

We gave up on soy-beans;deer eat them as fast as they come up.We planted field corn,sorghum,sun-flowers,cow-peas;late planting will be millet,winter wheat and brassicas.

Re-sprouting weeds following being mowed down is about as attractive as anything. Diversed plants can help, as deer are disimating one type by over-grazing,other types are able to grow. One of the best deer magnets I've seen was created by accident. A hunting pardner borrowed a brush clearing machine from the utility company he worked for. He cleared several shooting lanes that happened to have lots of honeysuckle in them. In Tx,honeysuckle is evergreen so there was plenty of new growth from the clearing operation.
So,I suggest you plant 2 or more types and mow areas in addition to those that are being seeded. Last but not least,take a kid hunting.
