Good story you found Ca_V! Thanks for sharing! I hope I can get out into the woods and go hunting at that age after going thru what he has endured. I believe he had some help from above with that deer. Congrats to him and his son!
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.
