Remmy, it's unbelievable what I have seen coming out in the last few weeks. They just can't stay away from the beans, it mesmorizes them and they just can't help themselves. I actually tasted one of the leaves the other day and it wasn't that bad, no bitterness at all.

Problem is, that food source will change within the next 30 days, so when the opener comes, there will be no deer there. Time to start scouting what other food sources are in the immediate area that will "ripen" in about 30 days. But its still nice to know there are bucks of that quality in your hunting area-it will make passing up the dinkers that much easier

MTH, I know that most of the bucks will be gone by the opener, but the other evening, I counted NINETEEN shooter bucks out of 21 deer in one specific field. It just amazes me to know that there are even that many that have laid low, so to speak, in order to get to the quality that they are. Hopefully, when the food source changes, a few of them will remain in the area. Many of the famers in this area planted the beans this year instead of corn, but there are still some apple trees back along the edges of the woods and the fields.

- Try the beans inside the pods. They are really good. I used to eat them all the time at my Uncle's farm in PA when I was a kid.

Robin, those apple trees will rippen in Early to Mid September. nock a few apples to the ground on Sept 1, and repeat the process every 3 days. If there are not enough apples in those trees-supplement with deer (bruised/nicked) apples from the local orchard. Keep those trees hot with apples through Mid september, and those big guys will show[up] If you will have access to the property next year too, come mid March 2010, use Jobes "fruit tree spikes" to fertelize those apple trees and prune them back some. Then in fall 2010 you will have loads of apples and tastier ones at that
