    Land Advice

    Afternoon All

    I have a piece of land which I would like to make more attractive to Deer,it is 5 acres of quite poor grazing grassland alongside a fast flowing river and surounded in farmland,I have seen Roe deer on it on occasion but they are only transient.
    What is the best thing to do to attract and hold some Roe?I have been thinking along the lines of planting a Cider Orchard,what would you do?
    Obviously a solution with a quick result would be most favourable.....

    Thanks

    Martin

    Get some kings deer lawn mix it works a treat, willow is very good too but most effective Iv found for attracting roe along with bleedin badgers is a pheasant feeder full of wheat !

    get a grant and plant trees 3acres
    with a game crop like maize 1 acre
    and a short lawn /meadow 1 acre
    and a salt lick

    It really depends on exactly what you're trying to achieve. Are you hoping to attract them in from over the border with tempting food? or are you trying to create a habitat which will provide great cover for them to lay up in?
