I have barrow loads of windfall cooking apples (and a few eaters) which I am not gonig to use for anything. A few years ago I droped them in one of the woods for the deer etc to eat but nothing seemed to. I have been told that I should have squashed them (driven over them to allow the juices out) and then they would have been eaten.
If we get some cold weather again this year I would like to try to use these up on the deer at home. Have any of you tried apples and am I wasting my time.
We are talking Roe deer in Wiltshire here, small cover belts, large fields. I am not looking to ambush the deer as I very rearly shoot them here it is just nice to see them from the house (sad I know). It might also stop them eating from my hoppers but I doubt it.
Any ideas would be welcome.
