What should I do to my property to attract deer to it it has some woods on it lots of woods around it and lots of ponds around it also only one hunting area


Deer need sources of food, cover, and water that they consider safe.  I’d start by evaluating the quality and quantity of food, cover, and water where you hunt.  I like to focus on cover as that’s where deer spend most of the daylight hours!  I also like to create something deer like that’s not available on neighboring properties.  For examples, fruit trees can be a great buck attractant if there aren’t other fruit trees within their range.

Enjoy creation,
