This idea makes sense Badger. Deer are edge habitat animals and creating thicker fencelines like this promotes this type of environment. On some of the small farms that I hunt, we have always left the branches from trees cut for firewood piled up. The opening from the tree removal allows denser underbrush to grow and the branches add to the cover and deer pile into those areas. But I have also found that when hunting open woods, deer do not like to travel through them as much. Have you noticed the same? As a fellow turkey hunter, your tactics are appealing but I would be careful about cleaning up the woods too much. Love the idea of preventing road "hunters", damn poachers really, from shooting your deer with this method.
