creating deer bedding area

Im on 13 acres the front of my property has about 2-3 acres of about 15'-20' cedars. i am considering hinging a number of these trees to creat beds and allow more light onto the ground. could i also plant other trees and bushes to help thicken area up or just let nature take its course?

Hi Arthur,

Thanks for your question.  I would recommend checking out these two videos by Quality Deer Management Association's expert Matt Ross:

We also have some good resources on attracting deer that might help as well.  You might also consider talking with a local wildlife biologist who can evaluate your land, the surrounding deer habitat and make recommendations specific for you and the deer in your community.
