I'm not sure Pinetree. One year I planted corn very close together thinking it would help keep weed competition down. There wasn't many weeds, but very few ears of corn. The next and every year since I've made sure to allow space both between and within the rows and had that issue.

That sounds like my plots. The peas have been ate down to ground level and all the corn ears the Deer can reach have been eaten. But the Deer I've seen and gotten pictures of look health.
