Deer up in Orr

2 posts in this topic

Does any body know what the deer are eating this time of year up in and around the paper mill country? Even better if anyone had any information regarding their anual diet changes that would be fantastic. Also where do these deer tend to bed? Thank you for your time.

We were up last weekend and I would say the same food source as always- twigs, tree buds, grass if they can still find it. The logged areas we walked around in had brush with all the bud ends nibbled off already. A few does we seen on the logging roads were grabbing what was left of grasses. Not the best food for grwing big racks, but there must be some around. Where they bed? well, I think its still probably about anywhere they feel safe, but in the coming weeks it seems like they move closer to the swamp and low area edges and in the thicker pine groves.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
