Encouraging Natural Growth

908 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  east lake hunter
I hunt on a timber lease in an area where building a "meaningful" food plot is out of the question and feeding corn, etc. is getting too expensive.

I'm thinking of ways to improve the natural vegatation around my stands.

I'm looking for suggestions.

Currently, I have a few berry bushes (not enough), some grasses (not sure what kind), some small volunteer pine trees (about 12 inches tall), some muscatine vines and some other green vines.

I'm thinking that I need to promote "green" growth for as long as possible during hunting season.

At one of my stands I have a ton of these green bushes about shoulder high that produce little purple berries. I never saw the deer eating the berries but they love the leaves of these bushes. Any body know what these bushes are called???

I think they are called french mulberry at least that is what I have always heard them called and deer love them where we hunt and I believe they eat the berries, but you shouldn't they are poisonous I believe.
Are they elderberries? :confused:

I saw an 8x16 storage building for $995 and wondered if you found one.
I'm still looking for a storage building. Where did you see that building???
Found it in the Big Nickel ad says 8x16 portable storage building , shingled roof, double doors 3/4 " plywood floors, $995 Call 24/7 , 417 475-3402

good luck
Deer seem to like this plant. I've had them stand in my clover and strip a limb or two. We've always called it French Mulberry though.
I wonder if the stuff would grow better if I put some triple 13 on it?

Cause I got a whole bunch of the stuff around one of my stands.
