    didn't hurt my hunting when they cut mine.....killed several of the biggest deer ever killed on my property when it was cut. as soon as the crew left out, the deer came in to inspect

    Deer like cover and water. After the first frost a lot of cover dies but it still leaves the brush they can bed down in. If you leave them places to go and hide, especially when the pressure of hunting season starts, you’ll have better luck.

    the second year is when it sucked and all the dang weeds and brush was head high! to low to hunt under and too tall to hunt over

    the deer will still follow the same paths, only difference is now you can see them without the trees in the way and you'll realize how close they've always been

    Deer turned the area where the trees where on the hunting property into bedding area when the weeds took over, the deer will change their patterns but might stay around
