I tend to like prefer soft mass (fruits and berries). There are usually plenty of acorns but fruits and berries are limited. I like a variety of species so something will be ripe at different times throughout the season. The more limited the preferred resource the easier it is pattern deer. I have some different fruit and acorn trees in my tree plot. I got them from http://www.FlatwoodNatives.com.
That’s a neat looking buck! He’s neck merges with his chest at his brisket. His chest sags below where his leg meets his shoulder and his shoulder and ham is well developed. I estimate this buck is four years old and likely older.
