    Deer love oats.

    Especially when the plant is less than 4-inches tall. They line-up in a field and go lockstep, up one side and down the other like a lawnmower!

    Well, I followed all your advice. I got oats disced in yesterday. How long does it take for them to usually germinate?

    Seven to ten days. Maybe as long as long as 14 days. Depends on moisture and soil temperature, but probably not an issue right now.

    Both plots were small. One had almost as much rock as soil and the other had dormant weeds. I disced each pretty heavy, broadcasted seed, lime and fertilizer and used a drag harrow behind my 4 wheeler. Hopefully I get some growth to disc in for summer annuals in mid May

    Awesome!
    How long have they been in the ground?
