This is my first year to plant rye on my own place. I have one plot that is about 6 or 7 acres and I planted half in wheat and half in rye. The deer will feed while walking across the half planted in rye - on their way to the wheat side. Once in the wheat side, they might feed for thirty minutes. My deer much prefer wheat. Maybe if wheat wasnt available, they would eat the rye just as much. Do deer have to acquire a liking for rye?
