Default Protecting sappling pines

I planted about two dozen white pines last summer and when the cold weather hit late in the year the deer mowed them down to just a twig. Well I bought 100 more and planted them in what was a corn field along with a bunch of other trees but Im not realy worried about the deer eating them. Can anyone tell me what is the best thing to use to keep the deer from eating them. I dont want to use any repelant because Im wanting to hunt the field this year, so some kind of fence would be preffered.

You could make teepees out of chicken wire. As I said on another post the salt in the nursey fertilizer seems to attract the deer and other creatures. Try putting a salt block away from the tree planting until the fertilizer wears off.

I'm not sure how big your sapplings are but these might do the trick. I use this company extensively for my Christmas tree Farm, There great to deal with.
