Harvesting Whitetail Deer in NC, SC, & GA

Harvesting Whitetail Deer

Did you know there are approximately 32 million whitetail deer in North America according to the Boone & Crockett Club?  That sounds like a lot of deer until you find out that 11 million hunters go out chasing them every fall.  You have competition.  The best way to overcome too much interaction with hunters on public land is to buy your own piece of hunting land.  If you’re searching for the perfect hunting land for sale in North Carolina, South Carolina or Georgia, you need to check out the Elliott Recreational Properties’ website.  Helping you find the right piece of hunting land is their game.

To attract and grow huge whitetails on your hunting property, use a good nutritional supplement like BB2 Food Supplement and Attractant from Big & J Industries.

A mixture of di-calcium phosphate and salt will benefit deer digestion in the summer months and will help restore calcium for bone and antler development.  There are many recipes for di-calcium phosphate/salt blends online.  Be sure to check local game laws before utilizing food or supplement products on your land.

Providing good nutrition in the way of year-round seasonal food plots is one of the most important things a landowner can do attract, grow and hold giant whitetails.  Late winter and early spring nutrition are key to growing true Boone & Crockett whitetails.

Good fawning areas planted in native warm season grasses near escape cover will attract deer to your land and improve fawn recruitment.

Planting cedars in rolling terrain and rougher areas will provide sanctuaries for elusive bucks, to keep them on your land.

Controlling coyotes and feral hogs will also make your land more attractive to all wildlife.  In some areas of the United States, coyotes take down 50-75% of newborn fawns.  According to the biologists at the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA), the best time to implement a coyote control program is just prior to fawning.  Check your local game laws for legal take of coyotes and feral hogs.

Wolves too are impacting deer and elk herds in many of our western and northern states.  In Yellowstone it is estimated that the elk herd was at an all-time high in the 80s with 19,000 to 24,000 animals.  Today the population could be as low as 4,000 to 6,000 animals as a direct result of the wolf reintroduction and the protected status given.  The northwoods of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan are experiencing significant wolf challenges with their whitetail deer herds.
