Deer at the feeder

At 10:15PM there was 3 doe and 4 bucks at the feeder in the back yard. 1 big wide 8 point, 1 wide 4 point, 1 with only one side with 3 points and 1 with one side with a Y. They are here every night but the bucks usually come a lot later. At 7 PM there were 4 does out there.

Re: Deer at the feeder

Get a camera up and post some pictures of them. You might be surprised what's there that you're not seeing.

The sleep of a laborer is sweet, while the rich man tosses and turns, worried about his possessions.

Re: Deer at the feeder

I have two cameras out there now pull the cared every Saturday.Last Saturday I had 1158 pics. on the one nearest the feeder. I have a feeder at camp also but only put a camera out when I'm there. You wouldn't believe the size of some of those McKean County bucks.

Re: Deer at the feeder

I got my feeder going around Dec 15th. Just got a call from my friend who refills it for me. Will be going on 3rd ton of corn next week. 2 tons usually lasts until March.

Re: Deer at the feeder

Came home at 4:50 PM yesterday and there were 4 doe and 4 buck at the feeder. The doe were chasing each other around and one even fell and slid about 10 on her side. That was the first time I ever seen a deer slip and fall in the snow.

I thought feeding deer corn was the worst thing for them?

Thank God I'm an American, and not a democrat!

Re: Deer at the feeder

I get some around my bird feeder every night. We have English ivy growing up the basement wall to the porch (English ivy stays green all year round) and there is a distinct browse line at the maximum height the deer can reach.
