2021 Deer Hunting: Check out the Bucks Feeding On Native Browse!



Recently while hunting, Daniel spotted a group of deer, including a nice buck, feeding on native vegetation. We used prescribed fire during the late summer in this area to set back saplings and encourage native forbs to grow. The new growth is very palatable and nutrient rich and a great food source for critters! Have you worked to improve the native habitat where you hunt? #TeamOutdoors

After removing the cedars and using prescribed fire, the native habitat released its potential! Now there is a diversity of grasses and wildflowers, which are not only beautiful to look at but many species offer critters great cover and quality browse this time of the year. If you’re interested in a more in-depth look at the wildflowers and native browse that have been restored on our hunting property, watch this video, https://youtu.be/nBG2q70V7Cw
