I wouldn't want to stretch it to much later than that. Get 'em planted by June and you'll be fine. It's the corn that you're really rushed on, not the soybeans. I've personally seen soybeans planted much later and the deer tore 'em up but the corn won't ear with a later planting.

Soybeans will "make" here in NC as long as you plant them by the 4th of July...
Most farmers in Eastern NC haven't even finished cutting their winter wheat and the beans are planted in the stubble after that...

Planting for deer, you could go even later then that...

Try planting a few soybeans very late, since you are not trying to harvest them for production, just for deer feed try around end of July or first of Aug and they will be green when the farmers are harvesting theirs , thus the only foodplots in the "neighborhood"...... Corn you might need to plat by middle of July for the same effect.

If you are just planting for Deer maybe you should consider something else. plant something in that will attract the deer when you can hunt em. let everyone else feed them untill then.
