Habitat Podcast #236 – Late Summer Habitat Projects, Hunting By The Road and Using Fence Gaps with David Gage!

Habitat Podcast #236 – In today’s episode of The Habitat Podcast, Jared sits back down with repeat guest David Gage. We discuss understanding deer behavior by strategically cutting trees and planting fruit trees, various projects that hunters can undertake to maximize their chances of harvesting mature bucks, the benefits of hunting near roads and using fences and hinge cuts to manipulate deer movement. We discuss:

  • Strategically cutting trees and opening up areas with sunlight can attract deer and create hunting opportunities
  • Planting fruit trees in a cleared area can provide additional food sources for deer
  • Creating trails and funnels with fallen trees can guide deer movement towards the hunting area
  • Roads and vehicles can educate deer about potential threats
  • Hunting properties that meet all your criteria are rare and often don’t come up for sale frequently
  • Prices in the market are decreasing, making it a good time to be patient and wait for the right opportunity
  • Checking and maintaining open areas during summer ensures that travel corridors are not obstructed by excessive vegetation
  • Careful consideration of crop rotation and planting choices in food plots can optimize habitat for deer throughout the seasons
  • Frost seeding clover in small plots can help establish a consistent food source for deer without sacrificing the quality of existing clover stands
  • Creating gaps in fences to redirect deer movement and create optimal shot opportunities

And so much more!
