Default Gravity Feeders Coming Down

Taking them out, hoping it will make the deer move better during shooting hours.

Trying to decide if I want any spinner feeders. If I do, they will be very limited.

I'm not some great white hunter or anything but it's my opinion that mature bucks will not get killed with any regularity over feeders (and the majority of the ones that do will be during the rut looking for does)...

Get rid of them feeders!

I've had them come in to feeders but in a very low pressure area.

I will probably have one or two, well away from any stands and away from the buck woods.

I've been a guest at a Walnut Hill club managed for very mature bucks. When those feeders go off, it's a dinner Bell and they come running! But their pressure is low and they've been doing it for 15+ years. Three of the bucks on my wall came from there and shot at a feeder!

Feeders can be useful to keep deer around. But hunt off of them if your wanting a big buck. They will wait till you climb down if they know your hunting over it. They stage themselves in the thick stuff till after dark!

Going to try some summer plots. Iron Clay peas and maybe sunflowers or something.

Try and plant them this week and disc them under in late September.

On small plots, if you've got many deer, you'll need something to keep them out of the peas until they leaf out. Otherwise, all your hard work will be gone in a night or two and you won't have to worry about discing them in.

Really? The deer are thick around these small fields, saw 3 while breaking it up yesterday.

This is my first time planting summer plots. Relying on TP's expertise.
