Well don't complain about the ragweed...it is up to 40% protein and other plants esp in a wet year like this.. are very beneficial for wildlife.

I know if you mow or disk a field that has ragweed about a week or two before dove season it makes for a good dove shoot.. :yep:

I've never actually seen where deer have fed on ragweed that I remember....but I have wondered before how some of the early bow kills would be rolling fat, with virtually no grass around, of course later years corn was and still is put out by the tons...I've seen where deer would just eat the fire out of Poke stalks and briar tops. But never ragweed, my son first learned of this on Growing Deer TV out of Missouri. I really didn't think a goat would eat that fuzzy stuff!!
