I was scouting my hunting property this afternoon and came upon an area with fruit on the ground. The fruit was green, about the size of an apple, and were shaped like pears. The thing that confused me was that this tree was larger than I would expect a pear tree to be and it was loaded with more fruit. It forked about three or four feet off the ground and each of the branches were at least ten inches in diameter and the tree was probably sixty feet tall. Some of the fruit had been eaten on. I've never heard of pears being on a deer's list of preferred foods but I guess they are opportunity eaters. It would probably be silly of me to ask if this would be a good site for a stand. The great thing about it is that this tree is on a field corner that sticks out into a field of alfalfa.
