The deeper the snow the more the deer and moose are in the way!! from my experiences they like Yellow Birch tops best of all. Don

I see more deer on my tractor than walking. They know the tractor is food for them, Most times I am cutting wood. last year I was cutting in the bog. I would haul a twitch out,maybe 500 feet,with in sight of the bog,drop it and go back. By the time I got back,the deer would be where I was cutting. They would take within sight of me and wait for me to leave again.

1270d  are you cutting in the King lake area?
If it can't be nailed or glued then screw it

Loggers feed wildlife and improve habitat for many species. The chain saw is a great deer call during the late bow season. ;)

Here in my area the deer seem to love the soft maple buds, they are pretty big. I have seen them standing and watching you cut down a tree and the minute it hits the ground they are eating the buds. I have had many hunters yell at me that I am scaring all the deer away with the sound of the saw and skidder. I just look at them and shake my head. They allow these people to vote also. lol
