Deer

Test
Mar 2, 2021 | 12:28 1 With the heavy snow that came in early Nov. and then melted a little from underneath and then froze hard. Really hard crust under two feet of snow makes it tough for deer.
First time I see then clean the cedars trees in the yard! Reply With Quote
Mar 2, 2021 | 12:48 2 Be alot of winter kill here. Dog had carcasses dragged in from every which way. That deep freeze was not kind. Reply With Quote
Mar 2, 2021 | 14:21 3 Yeah they’ve been gathering in the boneyard where I have a feed bin of oats open. Finding piles of sheds. I think now that they’ve made it this far they should survive ok. Reply With Quote
Mar 2, 2021 | 15:01 4 My better half hit a deer on the way home from work during that cold week and did $8,000 damage the next day her aunt hit one and did $12,000 damage. A friend narrowly missed a moose that same week. If it were rats or other vermin we would attempt to eliminate the threat. I wonder if society would allow the repopulation of bison on the prairies. I mean, what could it hurt? Reply With Quote

    Mar 2, 2021 | 15:28 6 I have had nightmares about hitting a herd of bison in our civic. Yikes. Reply With Quote
    Mar 2, 2021 | 15:46 7 We have a really high population around here also so this winter might thin them out some.

    My wife used to like watching them walk into the yard in the evening but now that they have chomped down almost all her cedar's she has lost her fondness for them. These are all white tails and they don't bother me like Elk. Reply With Quote

    Maybe not. One tough year not too long ago they were still tipping over with plenty of bare ground showing Reply With Quote

    Yeah, I’ve seen that too. I think they can end up so depleted and can’t recover. Just realized something kinda funny. I’m eating a honey garlic stick right now from one of my kids deer from the fall. Take that, deer! Reply With Quote

I'm sure theres some ammo that's damned near past the best before date? Its friggin wild here. White tail like I've never seen! Gonna be doing alot of "shed picking". Reply With Quote

    Last year he took one down all on his own, this year he gets all the wild meat he wants and doesnt have to work too hard for it. Reply With Quote

    We bought 4 of these.
    Solar powered.
    Lites flash..loud screeching sound.
    Sensors detect at night.

    Oh ya..open season on these bastards would be better.

    You either have freaky small deer or one hell of a dog! Reply With Quote
