Polk stands I located earlier have already been taken down by the deer..... I am like 156p&y Wish the big companies would develope a type of seed that would germinate and grow!! Noticed the honeysuckle is destroyed too!

If you control your deer density and have lots of small openings or field edges, polk and honeysuckle will be everywhere.

Controling the density is my problem. The neighbors to one track land I have, will not shoot a doe!! Myself, my daughter and a couple buddies cannot legally harvest enough does to put a dent in the problem. Since there isnt any crops being damaged, I would suppose I couldnt get any additional permits from TWRA.

Unit L guys have it made when it comes to attempting to control deer density, and create a ideal buck to doe ratio. Unit L guys can harvest in one day, what I am allowed throughout archery season...

The deer are hitting it pretty hard around clearcuts in the mountains of Cherokee NF.

That is a problem backstrap. But don't think we Unit L hunters have it easy. We suffer from the same "neighbor syndrome." We can kill does until the cows come home, yet by the following season, our places are completely restocked with does immigrating in from our neighbors that won't shoot does properties. It's a never ending battle. It can literally be true that the more does you shoot, the more you have the following year.
