Default cherry trees

I just noticed a couple cherry trees on the land I hunt. Never knew they were there. Is this a fruit tree deer would go to like oak trees?

not usually - but I've seen times when Turkeys will really relate to them and their fruit dropping.

Assume you are talking about Wild
Black Cherry

The only activity is often from wood thieves trying to score some primo woodworking material.

Lets knotforget good smoking wood also.

My cherry tree has fruit on it in June, not what I would call deer season.

I shot a 10 pt. in ohio on a rainy day.I watched him lick the water running down a cherry tree ,around and around the tree he went,this lasted a long time befor he moved to a scape. He worked it over befor entering my shooting lane.Maybe the tree sweetened the water or something .

Hard to say. You would have at least thought the deer would use a sugar maple. Even deer like the real stuff.

In my experience, the Birds will have the Cherries gone before they are even ripe!

These trees are real close to a doe bedding area. Thats what made me wonder if it was something they liked. Thanks for all your responses.
