I found the forest floor covered in this plant/weed. It looks like it sprouted not too long ago. It was wierd that this plant low to the ground in this thick woods area where I found it. Can it be a food source?

Another question, found green briar everywhere. I plan on doing some late season hunting in this spot. When do they hit the green briars?

They will eat green briars all year long.
Even when there is plenty of other food, they will still nibble on them.
Diversity!

Not sure what that is in the pic, but if its green and newly sprouted there is a good chance the deer are eating it...

Green briars are some of the best winter deer food sources. If you can find a Japanese honeysuckle thicket near an opening or old home site around your house, that would be another great late season food source the deer will be pounding.
