Goose, I would probably shy away from soybeans given the size of plots you are planting. If there is any amount of deer, they will keep those beans from growing. Depending on the equipment you have/have access to, you will likely need to get RR soybeans and spray to keep weeds under control. This especially becomes important if they are subject to heavy browse as they will have trouble shading out competing vegetation. We plant 2 acres in Shawano county and with few bean fields around us we get browsed heavily. We will be expanding to 4 acres next year.
For the turnips that you planted, did you buy a commercial brand or did you get them from a mill? I mix my own turnip/brassica blend and have had great results. Our neighbor has been sending us pictures of up to 20 deer a night pawing through 10" of snow to get at the bulbs in our big turnip field. We planted about 6 acres total and had some with leaves as high as knee high despite the dry weather and the deer had all of the vegetation pretty much gone by the end of deer season. Now they are just working on the bulbs and any remaining sprouts they can find. If they are not hitting turnips, either you don't have many deer or you have a seed/soil issue. They are a huge draw by us. We watch deer walk through lush clover fields just to go to the turnips first.
