The deer herd in my area I think has shrunk. On my neighbor's property about a mile north of me, I went out shed hunting over a month ago and seen a few tracks in the snow, that was it. Real different compared to last fall when that property was a deer hotspot. I think they herded up tight for the winter and moved a few miles away close to a stream and a good size cornfield. Hopefully the deer will move back in during the summer. The land I live on is looking ok. I saw some yearlings that survived the winter, Last summer was a huge year for twins and triplets out here. Neighbors are planting corn this year, I hope that helps for hunting next season.
I only hunt on days that end in ' Y '.
