View Full Version : Deer in the fields

My buddy who has hunted much longer than I says all the deer he is seeing are in the fields eating acorns all day long. Fields around here are NOT crop fields. He is seeing quite a few deer all in the fields. He believe in our area when the acorns dry up and weather turns colder may be better in the woods.

Guess I might need to suck them in with some corn.

If there is good food in fields they will find it. also your buddy may have some big oaks scattered around his fields. that will definitely draw them in. also could have persimmons or such scattered along field edges.
fields are great but they have to enter at some point from cover. find that point that they are entering the fields and you will have many more opportunities.
