Now I live in Wisconsin, and I own about 40 acres and over the years it has constantly produced a monster buck with each successive year. I was bowhunting one night when a monster of a buck came out with ghostly white tines, the problem was that it was out of range. I have to agree with you that you need to gain as much information one can get by studying the deer and their movements. I happened to not see that buck again, but just because you don't see him again doesn't mean he left. With age those old bucks get smarter, only until rut they grow denser.
Good Article =)
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
