Thinned afew; My work property

After having the deer on our work property chased off early due to the amount of coyotes in the area an them kill a young buck an a doe before New Years. Decided it was time to take them out as fast as possible. So far to date I've taken 15 off of 600 acres. 8 males an 7 females.

Most of them have fallen prey to my traps that I've got set around my bait. Because they just weren't showing themselves in daylight. The game camera we setup showed them coming in between 7pm thur 5am. So shooting wasn't an option so out came the four coil traps with the mild weather an melts they actually continued to work most of the year without many problems.

20, wow, thatís a lot. Hope itís putting a dent in the population, itís hard to tell as Iíve read that others simple move in as you thin them out. But heck, it canít hurt.

Well if more move in you just cull them next season. The hides help pay for the traps and the deer get a helping hand.
