Whitetail have an amazing ability to survive the most severe Winters that mother nature can throw their way. How do they survive? Some don’t. However, even those whitetail are mostly young and weak. Adult deer have proven to survive far past our level of comprehension. For many reasons, creating winter habitat on your land is a far better strategy for helping whitetails survive, than supplemental feeding. Feeding deer during the Winter can prove horribly wrong, unless those deer herd have proven unable to survive, unless supplementally fed. When feeding deer, be very careful using corn, which can actually kill deer that have not already been feeding on corn. Creating Winter cover on your land is by far the best strategy to help Whitetail survive, because Winter habitat not only provides thermal and snow hindered cover, but winter browse.
