How much do you think cows effect deer hunting? explain what you have noticed over the years! I lease a smaller tract, around 50+ acres and most of the farm has a herd of cattle on it. there is a section that is fenced off that they cant get to and its the best hunting on the whole farm. if the cows werent on the farm, a cover crop could be planted on several old tobacco fields, it would increase the hunting tremendouly... im curious what i should do to increase my chances of killing a good deer! thanks for your insight!
