Well, started planting some open spots in the woods on Wednesday and finished off topping the seed with horse manure around 2:30pm. My son got home from school at 4 and we went back out so he could see what work I did. My fresh four wheeler tracks were covered with deer tracks. Seems very odd to see that in the middle of the day around here.

Ok horse manure has Oats in it. And the deer might like that. If it is that let me know ill move my horse pen to my deerstand and ride my horse to stand in the morning.

A horse will eat about the same thing as a deer will...I know the deer love the rabbit pellets that i get from the local feed store to put in my feeders.

Anytime you turn up new dirt, deer will investigate it.. Was your horse a mare?:wink:

Well, one gelding, an older mare and a young filly. Maybe she was the key? Come to think of it, funny thing is I wore my barn boots out hunting one day last season as my normal ones were still wet. I got my biggest buck that day and I had never seen him before. (200+ dressed) :zip:
