deer exclosers

funny thing i noticed while hunting on state game lands this year,comparing the inside of deer exclosers to the outside of the fencing,i cant tell any difference in the tree or plant growth at all.seems like a waste of money on fencing.

Re: deer exclosers

If you can't see a difference then that means that the herd reduction has worked and that the deer are no longer destroying the regeneration.

Re: deer exclosers

i think there was a post saying it really wasn't the deer, but a boring beetle that was the cause....i have seen those fences with deer inside still at some of them and both outside and inside looked the same ........bob

Re: deer exclosers

we have two pens close to each other that have created a deer funnel between them for the late season ....plus when snow is on ground a buddy and i walk around the pens to see if there are fresh deer tracks in there....then a two man drive is on that give us and the deer lots of exercise .......bob

Re: deer exclosers

They may be needed in some areas, but from what I have seen in 4D in Union county they are a waste of money.

Re: deer exclosers

There's been one area fenced off for, i'm gonna say about 20 years in the Tuscarora State Forest. How long do they keep these areas fenced off? 20 years seems like a long time.
