Default How to bring deer in??

I'm trying to bring some deer onto a property I plan on hunting next year. It's a large acre farm but mostly fields. However, in the back pasture there is a creek that separates nothing but hardwoods. Unfortunatly I don't have permission to hunt the hardwoods. So I'm trying to find a way to bring them to my side of the creek. I know it will be difficult to get them out of the woods to a pasture so I need some ideas. Anything will help. I've thought of putting out corn during the fall and planting a food plot in the spring. Ideas?

You ca plant a foodplot-that will bring them to your property. But if you start shooting alot of deer off your plot they will quickly associate your fields with danger. They mite still come to your side but it will probably be after dark when they do.

Haven't seen any signs. Right now it's tall grass and there aren't any trails, no scrapes, no droppings. I believe i'll plant a food plot. I think it will give me my best option.

numerous food plots and hunt the trails between them and the woods so as not to push the deer away from them and dont hunt a certain trail too much

Put in a plot, for both fall & summer. Be sure to hunt it only when the wind is right. During the rut you may want to try a good brand of Doe in Estrous (Code Blue works for me).

For your fall plot, Oats are especially attractive, however they are not cold weather tolerant. Plant a mixture of winter peas, oats, wheat, some brassicas and throw in a few purple top turnips. This mix will provide some food throughout the winter for your deer. Do a soil test to check PH and see what fertilizer to use. If you can't do that, use 33-00-12 at 175-200 lbs. per acre.

Beans and corn would be good for the summer plot.

When Spring comes, start a mineral lick or 2 on your property and freshen it up every couple of months. Long term I would plant some Persimmon and Crab Apple trees.

Good Luck.

JM.

If you have access, you might want to channel the creek onto your property with a retention pond and a foot plot. Nothing better than a food source and water in the same spot. Provide some thick coverage near this and you will be on your way to having the deer right where you want them. In hunting, you have to go where the deer are. There are many ways to get them to come in - but they don't always stay. Give the deer a reason to stay on your property. If you build it - they will come.
