Habitat Podcast #249 – Strategies For Upcoming Gun Seasons, Planting Trees in Sandy Soil and Spring Prep for Planting Trees with Cory Franceus

Habitat Podcast #249 – In today’s episode of The Habitat Podcast, we sit down with Cory Franceus. Cory is a repeat guest from Michigan who has had a stellar season so far on his home farm. We discuss:

  • Sandy soil can pose challenges in tree growth and food plot establishment
  • Ordering trees in advance ensures availability of desired varieties
  • Focusing on one buck can be rewarding
  • The benefits of enhancing a property with food plots, timber stand improvement, and reducing hunting pressure to attract deer year after year
  • Late-season hunting in December can be productive, especially during the Michigan muzzleloader season
  • Prioritize doing habitat work or cutting firewood to prepare for hunting season
  • Implementing habitat strategies like TSI and grass planting
  • November is the ideal time to order trees for spring planting
  • Gun season strategy includes hunting for does and transitioning to food sources for bucks
  • Implementing small-scale habitat improvements
  • Winter food sources and cover can help recruit deer for future seasons
  • Choosing a property with insulation from roads and subtle terrain changes can enhance hunting potential
  • Cutting down trees on your property can attract deer to stay and feed

And so much more!
