Is it worth hunting where they are logging trees? The people that live across from there have seen some deer and one monster. Is it worth going in there to hunt?

Yes. Apart from bucks traveling for the sake of the rut, deer tend to remain in a limited home area, even with disturbances. Deer adjust quickly and they aren't going to move out of the woods just because some loggers are working.

Deer love the browse and brush piles. I agree with PY Antlers.

Yes, they will eat the buds and tender leaves on the tops of the trees. Easy meal.

Not too many leaves or tender buds this time of year, at least not here in WI, it may be different in your area though. I'd get in there and hunt it, and especially next year if you can, with all the new growth the deer will be in there like crazy. Good luck! We had one of our best years hunting at my cabin up north the year following some extensive logging, both clear cut and selective cut.

That could be some of your best hunting yet. The neighboring property to us logged a couple years agao, left massive brush piles. I thought it would have killed the hunting in that area. It brought in more deer than I imagined. I watched one mornign about 9 deer walk down a hill to a huge brush pile and they all climbed up and into the brush! They bedded there till about noon. You wouldn't believe the racket they all made getting up in there but they had a great secluded spot, with a great vantage point to see for a long ways. I see tons of deer in there now.
