Re: ? on Deer vs. Forest Future
In bald eagle, the enclosures have worked, but not like they thought. Older one are generally small maple, with just the big oaks in there they left for the cut to reseed. Problem is the laurel has come back 3 fold, and pretty much no oak seedling, if there is they eventually get stripped of leaves a few years and die off. Its a shame, but you cant always just blame the deer. If you have a "keystone" plant like laurel, nothing or little is gonna come up through that mess.
Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......
