Last year after the deer cleaned out my soybeans I had planted, I asked about what to try to get me into late fall early winter. Most people suggested winter rye. Well It worked out great and the plots held the deer and turkeys even after the snow fell.

Now with spring here it's growing taller and I would think it will seed out. Is that right? After it seeds out what do I do? Once the rye grew enough this spring the deer have seemed to stop eating it. Maybe it's not as soft and tender as it was in the fall. After it seeds out will it die off or do I have to mow it and till it under?

Thanks.

You are correct on all fronts.
the deer like it when its young green shoots and lay off it the older it gets.
Disk it in and you have a nice green manure for your next planting.
