How soon after cutting down trees will deer use an area a lot?

i havent noticed deer eating the leaves from downed trees... because they have plenty to eat all over, and i keep alot of corn out.
but all my Sheep and Donkeys come running when they hear the sound of a Chain Saw... they love to get right to eating those leaves.
sometimes in my way.. while im trying to cut them down.
so... im sure Deer do they same.

My suggestion to you would have been to hinge cut the trees instead of just cutting them down. With the hinge cut you will get vertical growth from the horizontally laying trunk and shoots coming off the stump. It is an immediate bedding area and a long term feeding area that way. FYI- a hinge cut is a cut about three quarters of the way through the trunk and pushing it over so it doesn't snap off.
