Saw 2 little bucks right in the street this morning coming in to work, about 5 blocks off the bluff. Both were a bit smaller growth wise than the first buck photo, but even in the low light one could easily tell they were bucks. I'm thinking they were both last years buck fawns that were recently chased off by momma in anticipation of this years new fawns.
Had 14 different bucks on game camera these past 2 weeks on our home 80 in Missouri. Can't tell you how many doe's and fawns. But one camera had over 1,100 pictures of them in and out of our clover patch. Deer everywhere!
I don't have as many deer as you, but I am seeing the same thing in the clover right now. Also, they are devouring the chicory, which looks like it is too tall to be very tender, but apparently not. I have become a believer in chicory for my area. They also hit it very well in the fall last year.
Nobody around here has chicory seed. I want to incorporate it into my perennial plots but I'm not buying buck on a bag seed. I think I'm gonna buy my grain seed local this yr then have the
OL mobuckchaser ship me some chicory an clover seed this fall?:rolleyes:
I like the Chicory as well. But I am starting to leave some common ragweed grow in some plots. The deer have been browsing that, dam near as much as the clover in both MN and MO. Anyone else seeing that?
Yep, I don't think those boys are related since they look so different. They are running together, but the tall boy is the boss monkey. I got some good pics recently of the tall one running the wide one off the mineral lick.
