    Had a logging project going on, so 1 camera and the feeder went out last night. Apparently the bear likes the area. The forester and loggers saw it a few times so I will probably get him/her on camera. Good chance it will stay close with the tops down, may winter over. The loggers said they counted 9 buck. While that may be true, a chainsaw in PA woods is a dinner bell for deer.

    So I should have something to post in a week or so.

    More fighting.


    The buck is being REAL spooky.  Does not like to come into the open.

    Dude, I’m a FIRM believer in cotton seed now!  We started feeding it this spring and it’s kicked EVERYONE into high gear!

    Cotton seed is going to put some urgency into shed hunting next spring, best Easter Egg hunt EVER

    I just found this about feeding cottonseed from https://springcreekoutdoors.com/blog/cottonseed-the-good-the-bad/

    cottonseed creates a condition called gossypol toxicity.  Gossypol is a chemical found in the seed that will actually render all male animals sterile.  Yes, sterile, as in no babies made that year.  However, the gossypol will leave the animal’s system once it stops eating the cottonseed, and fertility will return.  So, ranches that feed cottonseed MUST remove the feed, or stop feeding it, as the bucks remove the velvet from their antlers.  This timing gives the gossypol time to pass through the buck’s system and leave before he begins producing live sperm.  Remember: the only time a buck produces live sperm is while he is in hard antler.  I have seen several ranches that either didn’t believe it or forgot to stop feeding cottonseed before hard antler and they actually had zero fawns produced that entire year.  Talk about hard on a deer management program!

    Our deer had never had it before and wouldn’t touch it at first. I had into mix it 50/50 with protein feed. Once they started eating it, I put less and less protein until it was straight seed. Now they eat it like candy.

    Have not heard that. Will have to check with the state biologist in that.

    No worries, I was looking around for cottonseed locally and found it. I have no dog in this fight, just found something I found interesting and thought I'd pass it along.
