   I know it is an audio link but I saw the road sign of the deer crossing on the cover of the link which triggered my reminder.

   Edit: And the whole topic of the audio link is about deer crossing signs.

I will be cutting some wood. But it's in an area of just about all soft wood. Just white pine and red pine.

I've seen deer around here munch on hemlocks I've cut down too. And they are mostly all trimmed up 5' or so also.

Deer are doing fine. I have a steady 30 still coming. When the snow starts to melt,they will slowly taper off and than there will be no deer. There are a few deer out there now.
I am cutting some red pine for the OWB. The deer are coming in there to eat. Nothing like if I dropped a white maple.
Not many bear in this area. My Father hunted this area for years and never saw tracks or a bear. He farmed here too and was outside alot,but never saw one.I had one that came to the feeder a couple years ago. First one I have seen here. Brenda saw one a long ago. I stopped at the stop sign,looked left and she looked right and said,look a bear. By the time I looked right it was gone.

   More road kill deer on the road is a clear sign the economy must be better in your area. :D

In farm country the quickest way to get rid of road kill is to place out in an open field so the buzzards/vultures will land there and stay at it.
