Reminds me of hunting along the Koyukok & Kateel Rivers before TV Videos attracted every yahoo from Anc and lower 48--one year three of us traveled 1300 mi by boat to get there and back-- took three moose in the 220 range after turning down somehwere around 50 bulls--Now a days you'd be lucky see no less shoot one over 50" and then have to cut rack in half.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
