Deer season is over, and most hunters put away their rifle to chase waterfowl or look forward to the spring turkey season. Even though it’s winter, there are still many opportunities for Triangle Pond Management’s Wildlife Management Division to help you make improvements on your property for better deer hunting next fall. Want a shooting lane cleared, a path cut in, or a food plot installed in an overgrown area? With deer season over, winter is a great time for our Forestry Mulching equipment to go to work for you to achieve your goals.
If you have areas of unproductive woods on your property, they can benefit from the removal of unproductive trees to allow sunlight into the understory and promote new growth of natural flowering forage for the deer known as forbs. This new growth is high in protein, makes up a large percentage of deer’s diet in the spring and summer, and provides vital nutrition to lactating does, feeding fawns, and bucks growing antlers. Winter provides an opportunity for us to help you maximize the benefits of the existing and/or potential food plots on your property.
- Disking old fields in late winter/early spring will stimulate growth of new vegetation for your wildlife.
- Get a head start on herbicide treatment of weeds and unwanted vegetation to keep them under control
- Take soil samples to know your fertilizer and lime needs for your spring food plots
You can even call on us for our timber stand improvement expertise! No matter if your needed improvements are big or small, contact us today to allow us to help you maximize your property’s benefits to wildlife.
