Some more info on my deer pics.this is a 40 acre hay meadow.last year i decided to mow a 4 foot path across this field to see if deer would follow the trail.it worked!now the problem.they don't come out in daylight.i have a few this year in daylight,mostly a doe and 2 fawns.any idea's?i'll post a few more pics from this year.
that does seem to be a problem,,,i hope by leaving standing corn and milo along with the 3 ft tall native grasses,,the deer might come out durring the day ,,,,from the ground you cant see any thing,,,time will tell
Delbert, have you thought about giving a decoy a try?
I recently saw on outdoor TV a show about using decoy deer to draw deer out into the open and by george them decoys worked like a charm. one tip is decoy direction. if you use a buck decoy keep him pointed towards the field and dont make it look like he's heading back into the woods, his direction could trigger a response to other bucks that the field is safe to enter into but if he's heading back towards the woods the other bucks may think the fields are not safe to enter into. I hope I explained that so it makes sense.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
Catch them during the rut...they will get stupid sooner or later. Another idea is to find were they are coming from. Set up in the woods and catch them coming to the field...maybe thats easyier said than done?
