Default RE: Turnips or not?

I tried turnips in Mid Mo. a few years back with no luck at all. In other parts of the country, turnips and rape are a preferred food for deer especially newly planted and after a hard frost. I had little luck with either on my farm. I actually think the deer need to learn to eat foods that they are not accustomed too. Wihtout the need to try to eat anything that is green to stay alive, they may never try new plants. This year is worst then others because of the large acorn crop that exist in my area. I have great looking plots of clover, and rye, oat, soybean mix with little activity in any of them. You can hardly walk in the woods this year without stepping on acorns.
