Deer love beans, Roundup ready or not...

If they aren't eating beans during daylight hours, they have another preferred food source that they are hitting...This time of year, it's a good chance it's white oaks or even grapes...

Just about every bean field for years has been round-up ready, the deer will be in there as long as they're green.
