I have an issue with our best area on our piece of land in central Wisconsin that I just started observing last year
The area I am talking about is about a ten acre thick spruce plantation and around on the north and west sides our best food plot is situatued. The only spot that there is an adequate place to hang a set is on the west side because of the wind conditions around October and November and because of finding trees that are large enough. The first few years the deer would always use two trails that cut from the south of the spruce right to the north-west corner, funneling them right in from of this set. However, in the last year that trail has become cut off because the spruce has covered them up and they go from the south to the southwest and work north in the food plot. Would it be a good idea to cut away some of that over growth to divert the deer in the old direction? Has anyone ever had legitimate success with self-made deer trails?
