Default Perennial Peanuts?

Anyone have experience with Perennial Peanut foodplots...particularly in central Florida? I would be interested in your observations on them and how they compared with other crops--growing season wise, game usage wise etc..

there is a large plot on US 19 south of Chiefland.I go by it every morning durning hunting season and have never saw a deer on it.

it spreads like wild fire , so if you plant it make sure thats what you want.
I have heard deer love it,but have yet to see any on this plot.

One question. Are these peanuts cold hardy? It seems that it is only for where frost is quite rare. Just wondering if planted in a small plot in a timber that the leaves/Pine needles would tend to control its spread. Where I'm at temp can reach 0° once every 2-4 years and have stretches of below freezing weather. I would assume that would cancell out any chance of using them here.
