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.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
