I know it !
Tripple D, The cutting back there just about drove me crazy last year (2020) as it was 24/7. Some of the cutting was pretty close to the back of my property. I have a location that I hunt that way and didn't hunt it at all due to the continuous noise of machines and trucks. They took anything they could get a 2x4 out of. It really disrupted what is a pretty tranquil place around the Camp. I took the bike back this year and yes there are some big clearcuts. Plus, I heard a lot of shots in that direction. >PeteNice video pete thanks for posting.
Spent some time up there this year. Couple big clearcuts on the “other road” . I went in that way and hid the bike and cross the brook at what we call the falls. Can’t get in from my end as the beavers have the road flooded, almost a lake at one point! We saw a lot of deer in there this year.
Thanks. I thought long and hard on the last one.....lol. But, there was still lots of season left and I knew there were bigger ones. Plus, that one would be a beauty next year. He is a backwoods buck so I hope he makes it . >PeteGreat video, some nice looking, up and coming bucks
Cut a hardwood tree down, don't feed them if they aren't used to getting fed. Their stomachs are used to woody browse right now. You feed them they can die with a full stomach cause they aren't used to digesting anything else.Hi Pete
Since I have a nice group of deer hanging around was thinking of getting some feed for them to help through the winter
What do you suggest
That is why I am asking Pete since I know he has a proven blend that doesn't hurt them ands tons of experience in this. I am not cutting trees in my yardCut a hardwood tree down, don't feed them if they aren't used to getting fed. Their stomachs are used to woody browse right now.

Thank you PeteHey Joe, Beaverhunter, I buy in bulk for the winter. Usually 1000lbs because it is way cheaper. It is a mixture of oats, dried molasses, and cracked corn. The Lands and Forrest recommends grains, usually oats etc if you are going to feed deer in the winter. They used to have a guideline on their site. If you want to mix up some feed yourself then I usually mix it 1/3 cracked corn to 2/3 oats. Go to the Coop Farm Store and get 2 bags "oats with molasses" and a bag of "cracked corn" if you want to mix it all at once. If not, then 1 scoop to 2 scoops in a bucket and mix it and put it out. Maybe just limit how much you put out at first. If you have a bird feeder and the deer are eating the seed, then they will eat this. During the deer season I will have some apples out and around mid Nov I will start to throw some feed right on top of the apples so they start to get used to it going into winter. I don't put feed out all year. They usually won't eat it when there is lots of green stuff around, but the bears love it......lol. When the bears show up in the spring, I stop the feed so the bears don't make my camp their home ! >Pete
