  • I have seen different studies on "home range" of whitetail deer. I hunt in southern Wisconsin where is it huge crop field, one

    I have seen different studies on "home range" of whitetail deer. I hunt in southern Wisconsin where is it huge crop field, one after another. When the crops are up, the land could support many deer and keep them in a relatively small area. After the crops are picked, there are very few places for the deer to hide. How is the home range affected after all the crops are gone? Will the deer come back when the fields are plentiful the following year?

    decoy hunter and sangcoacc have shown they know about the whitetails habits in open country, YEARS ago I spotted a doe go into a sinkhole in the middle of a barren field late one evening.Without taking my eyes off of her spot I slowly approached thinking how easy this was going to be.She never came out,I hollered ,threw clods of dirt,nothing.I backed off quietly and sat down till it got to dark.As I finally gave up and walked away,I heard the thud of a running deer and seconds later she blowed again and again as she ran through the darkness.
