we had a few big trees in one area fall this late summer/fall and opened up a nice canopy in the woods near the river, where I see deer all the time and where my daughter just found a dead 9 point hit by a car, (how he got that far in is beyond me) that come January we are going to clear it out and haul the wood to my house and get it ready for planting next year... Our goal is to get them the nutrition they need to grow better horns and a good place to sleep and keep improving on it

just do like we did, plant about 50 acres of corn and soybeans right where you hunt. I have never seen fatter deer or nicer racks than I have this year.

sounds like your problem is overhunting, not lack of nutrition.

wrong its me and my daughter Charlie and his son (who almost never comes out and hunts behind Charlies house) and Bob who today was his first day and might hunt 5 times a year... and the neibor and his bro who hunt once in a while on almost 600 acres between the 2 places

problem was the brown its down of the neighbor and Charlie until we all agreed to let them grow this year

I hear that. about 6 years ago we kicked all other hunters off our patch. this summer I counted 47 deer in a 15 acre soybean field, 11 of them bucks.

we keep it up next few years should be good
but so far we have seen a few nice 8 points and one dead drop tine 9 point and the neighbor said he passed on a 7 point and didn't have a shot on a 10 point so were not that bad off for this year, just the bucks haven't started chasing the does yet for some reason, must be the warm ass weather

Too many unpicked fields of corn out by us in Dansville. I have seen at least 2 does every time I've gone out. Last year on opening day from 4:30-5:30pm I had 19 deer within 75 yards of me. They are just hiding out in the corn for now. Plus we the apple orchard got frosted and killed the blossoms this year, so no apples on the ground to pull them in.

That's the first I've heard this year of a bad apple crop... the frost must have been fairly localized. Everywhere I've heard there's been a banner crop of apples. The old apple orchard at our cabin produced the most I've ever seen this year.

There are a couple corn fields around me that never got much taller than 5 feet this year, DNR paid the guy who owns them to just leave them alone. Seems they are offering to pay a lot of farmers with bad crops to leave them alone for better feed plots or something.

How did you tag 2 bucks during gun season? I thought we were only allowed 1 buck legally with a firearm.

My bad, I didn't know a combo tag was legal for all of gun season. I screwed up and only purchased the firearm license instead.
