I would hate to do that. What do the deer feed on up in NY. Never been there and do not have a clue what the farms grow up there.

In my area all we have are mostly corn, clover, strawberries, beans, soybeans, that the farmers all plant every year but not in the same spots. I think they do that for soil nutrition or something. And of course the White Oak acorn groves each Sep-Oct is when they start falling like crazy. So basically the deer have an ample food menu throughout the fall early winter.

Sorry Jakestir I must have missed this. NH is a lot like the U-P of Mich but with very low deer densities. Not much in the way of agriculture, a few small alfalfa fields but mainly hay if there is a field. Red oak up here where I am and a few whites down south. Beech nuts and acorns are there main stable when we have them. Browse form clear cuts are a big food source. NH is about 93000 square miles and they estimate the deer pop at 80000. There are some where around 11000 deer harvested on a good year by 60000 license holders. Thats for the state. The winters here can kill 25% of the deer pop if there isn't enough acorns and the winter is somewhat hard. Last year it was hard but the 2 before were mild so numbers were up but we had a bad winter so I'm sure they are down now. we are allowed three deer tags. one bow either sex, one bow buck only and one firearm mostly buck only. some areas have a day or two you can hang it on a doe. the very northern part of the state went to a 3 points one side rule. The rest of the state is 3" one side makes it a buck. I think the state should spend more time working with landowners to do things to help the deer pop and then do the 3 points one side all over the state cause one won't work without the other. the number of deer competing for the little food is a bad deal.
