I don't have a clue but what I noticed on our clover field this year was they started using it the most after our first frost for about 3 weeks. I shot a nice 9 on it during that time period, and now they've been using it again. There are potmarks where the deer have been digging it out of the snow.
Guy's this could all be true but the one thing that you may be forgetting is that soybeans and corn may have a much higher protein value and therfore are a much more suitable food for these deer in the winter. It was once said that a deer could starve to death with a full belly of hay.
Actually the Alfalfa has more protein than the corn but the corn has more carbohydrates.
