Seeing any does

Postby fasteddie » Mon Oct 06, 2008 4:01 pm

I was down in the Mendon area Saturday and saw a total of nine doe (3 locations -not all nine in the same spot)  . It was between 11 and 11:30 am . I hadn't been seeing any doe in the late afternoon and thought they had gone nocturnal .
My sister in law in Geneseo said she had 7 doe cross her horse pasture lot in the middle of the day . She hasn't been seeing any bucks .
What are you seeing in your travels ?

None of the corn has been cut around here .
There are quite a few deer on River Road up around the Abbey . I think they are getting fat on the Monk's Bread !  I almost joined the Sportsmen's Club in Cuylerville but there was too much BS with that .

I have never in my memory seen so much corn planted. I truly believe it is affecting not only deer sightings and behavior but other wildlife as well
