Habitat Heros #99: Important Winter Habitat Management Projects

This time of the year is not the time to slack. Many states have closed deer season now, but you should still be in the woods, but now you should be improving the land. Trade in the bow for a chainsaw, it's time to give back and put some trees on the ground.

Over 80% of a deer's diet is woody browse. Do you have enough woody browse available on your property to keep feeding deer? We are about to enter the most stressful time period for whitetails, food should not be limited on your property at this time. Put a hold on shed season and do work that will produce a return for you and your hunting for seasons to come. If bucks come out of winter healthy, they grow larger antlers the following season based on improved body conditions.

In this podcast, we discuss the importance of woody browse and other winter-time habitat management projects like bedding area thickets, TSI, dormant season discing, and prescribed fire. Find out how these habitat improvement techniques can make your property more attractive to wildlife! Enjoy.Learn.Share! #ForLoveoftheLand
