Default Soy Beans???

I was wondering if anybody used soybeans rather than corn? I heard that you can take some soy beans and put them in a bucket of water and sour them for a day or so, then go pour them out and the deer will tear them up and coon and other animals hardly touch them. Has anybody ever done this or heard of anybody doing this?

No never heard of it, but If there are any hogs in the area they will eat them too.

I have fed them in my trough before, and they ate them pretty good. As far as them souring I have seen the deer eat them like that as well really good at first then not so good. Don't know why.

Don't know about souring soybeans. I've seen them browsing for beans on the ground after
all the plants are dead from first frost, so I know they like the beans.

I'm sure the deer would like them, but it will cost you a lot more. Right now corn is a little over $3 a bushel, but beans are around $8.

I have never heard of that but I used to attack hogs using a 3 liter coke bottle with holes in the top. I would pour corn into it and put water inside and hang it from a limb. Eventually it would get ripped down if you didnt have it high enough. Of course it smelled so bad you couldnt hunt around it but it drove them nuts.

About 6 years ago, we leased 3 of our fields to a farmer down the road. He planted all of them with soybean. Unfortunately/fortunatley, the fella told us he wasnt going to pay us (after he planted), so we didn't let him harvest his crop. We let the deer take care of that . Every morning and afternoon, I would always count atleast 30; many nice bucks. IMO, the best deer plot.
