    i have 5 acres. Back borders an overgrown ditch.

    Watched a doe having two fawns last night. They’re wobbly walking on the mowed part of our lawn today. Pretty cool.

    Love it. :D Our front lawn broke out in clover several years ago there was no scaring the deer off it. Boy, they do love clover. So, I disked up a quarter acre by the back fence which is about 100 yards from my box blind, planted mostly clover. Damned hogs came in when it was coming up and did their version of disking.

    I put a feeder in the back yard to help bring in the deer when we first moved here. It brought in the deer, okay, but I looked out there one afternoon and the back yard was fulla pigs. I shot the mama. Decided the feeder needed to move back in the woods.

    Saw a TV show about Boar Buster traps. Looked pretty good but I expect they’re expensive

    I’m using my pigs to prepare my future greenfields, then move where I am feeding them and plant the the area they disced for me. Finally figured out how to prepare hogmeat and my last batch was good. Ow, hopefully this deer season, I will be mixing in some venison off my hog prepped greenfields

    Down at my son's land yesterday checking food plots and puttin' tubes on the new apple trees. Found teeny tiny deer tracks where I had tilled the ground to put in the Red Osier Dogwood. Hopefully they will mature together.

    Just went out to the shop to get something. Little deer is laying in the cut grass

    Guess I’m not mowing the back lawn for a while

    Our deer population in my region took a hit a few years back when we had a long drought. Been seeing more deer this Spring than I have in a long time.
    We'll see how it goes come the Fall.
