Do deer like horse hay bales? Or what can I feed them?

(Using the Yanmar site because that's where the smart people are. Besides, I'd dump the food out of my Yanmar bucket.)

They are mighty tasty if you feed them some lead Smile

Sorry, could not resist! Mine eat the berries and everything else that grows around here. Some cracked corn may work for you.

If we get many more deer I can sell the lawnmower. They will eat anything a cow will eat plus the garden vegies, flowers from under the front window. We sure don't need to feed them here to keep them around, we could almost call them domesticated, they just stand and look at you instead of running off anymore. In the last three days there are two dead ones along the road by our mailbox that cars have hit.

They for sure love young cedar seedlings. We planted 100 a couple of years ago and every one has been eaten. Now they stand and stare at us through the kitchen window until we toss out a few apples.

If the idea is to attract them a salt lick should do the job.

A couple of years ago we had one huge buck wandering around. Wife walked out the front door to go to work and it was standing on its hind legs eating the berries off the mountain ash. She screamed. Thought it was a prowler Smile

the deer around here can be found in grass feilds and alf. feilds so if you have some land a would plant some in alf. to keep them over there. there is a lot of people that make deer food out of auto feeders as well.

I'm not a hunter but my buddies are. They tell me Michigan has a law against "baiting" deer as there is a widespread problem with Chronic Wasting Disease. Foot plots are still allowed but are frowned upon by the Feds. And since no one wants to get busted (big fine I hear), fellow hunters are very cautious and guarded about exactly what they are doing to attract deer even on their own property.

Edit: The law applies to deer and elk in the lower penninsula. The fine is $60-$600 and up to 90 days in jail.

They do try to eat everything, especially when the grass is snowed under, which is why I wondered if something like hay would help keep busy and out of the garden.

My deer salt lick they can take or leave. The deer corn I put out is low-quantity for them but a feast for the squirrels. That's why I wanted to know if they like hay.

Having a long-gun in Canada is almost like owning an atom bomb in the US.

Does anyone have info on "Wasting Disease"? My guess is that deer keep moving, and if you feed them in a limited space, disease can more easily spread. So I could spread the bales out.

In my first post I forgot about the new evergreens we set out a few years ago.
We set aprox. a humderd, by the next spring there were maybe four or five that weren't destroyed so we replaced the dead ones, next spring maybe eight or ten survived the deer, we just gave up.
I'm not much of a hunter so I have very limited knowledge of the Iowa game laws, but I think it is illegal to salt deer.
We have about seven or eight seasons, everything from teenage bow, to regular shotgun with slugs, and still the deer population is getting far out of control, the hunters all want the trophy buck but in reality they need to shoot more does.
