Default Pears...do they eat em?

One of the first places I plan on bowhunting this year is along an orchard. I know there are pear trees by the dozens in this field...is a pear on the list of favorites?

We have pear trees in our yard. Deer love pears, as do skunks and yellow jackets. I usually spend my summer trying to kill the latter 2.

Deer cant get enough of them. my brother inlaw had a pear tree at his last house. right before dark deer would come out of the woodwork and huddle around that tree. the ground was kept clean

A guy in my town has about a dozen pear trees on the end of an apple orchard. The deer will pick the pear trees clean before they start on the apple trees.

We have pears on the property I hunt. The only sad part about watching dozens of deer is the fact that I am not allowed to shoot the owners wifes "pets".

My wife and I got married in November 05 and bought a log home out in the country. Its only 5 acres but has a pond (3/4 acre) and 2 pear trees, two apple trees, and two persimmon trees. I have seen does in my yard standing on their hind legs getting to the persimmon and apples, but never seen them hit the pears.

I see tracks around my pond leading to the fruit trees and notice that there are never any fruit on the ground. I guess since there are dogs and stuff around they only come to eat in the middle of the night.

Maybe this year I will put a tree stand in the fruit trees and see what happens. All my cameras are being used on my hunting property. I guess I will spare one and set up by my trees!
