How is the thick layer of ice over the snow affecting deer’s ability to eat?
When I walked in my area the deer were hunkerd down not wanting to move much with a light crust on the snow. A few days later it seemed like every deer on the Mt was down off the mt and in the lowlands and surrounding areas doing better than before.
I think the cold temps and wind is going to have some impact but the deer around here NE went into winter fat and happy. It depends how long it last. Days no problem, weeks not so good. Waugh!
AR is only a pacifier.You will never grow if it's not in your genes.
Up here the deer are doing just fine. I get 6 bags of cob corn every Saturday from my local sportsman club and dump it out back. They have no problem getting to it. They polish off all of it every week. Our feed program runs from the day after flintlock til the end of March.
