Canola is a tremendous draw for whitetail deer, particularly after the first hard frost. Being a member of the brassica family, the starches in canola turn to sugar following a hard frost. This reaction makes the plants incredibly palatable and desirable for deer. Best results, Canola should be seeded no later than 45 days prior to the first frost, but it should be seeded after the summer solstice to prevent bolting in hot, dry weather.
