Pursuit is labeled for use in both alfalfa and clover. It is active on many broadleaves and some grasses. There is a 30 day interval between application and harvest or grazing

would it hurt deer if they ate it before 30 days

Difficult question. I doubt it because Pursuit has a very low acute toxicity to animals. l suspect the 30 day interval is on hay in order to prevent residues of the herbicide showing up in meat or other products from the animals that consume the forage. Pursuit was widely used on soybean which dear and other animals browse on without any problems that I am aware of.
