Default What are they eating.

I went squirrel hunting today where I deer hunt. I found alot of deer poo. And most of the time it was runny. What is it that they eat that makes their poo like that?

Jalapeno nuts? mostly nuts branches and twigs. among other things, diet changes cause it to be runny.

I saw 4 doe's sucking up dry brown leaves like a bunch of vacuum cleaners on Friday. They eat what ever they can find from now till spring!

I'm not sure about the runny part.

I know now that the snow is melted and probably for a week before it snowed, all I've seen them eating is grass. They have been loading up on grass.

I've got a white oak, a persimon tree and a food plot all with in sight of the front porch and all I've watched them spend hours right out in the lawn where I mow, eating grass.

It must be the ' low carb" diet they put themselves on as a New Years resolution.
