This week marks the 44th anniversary of the 1978 Blizzard that shut most of our country down. As a young child that was one of the greatest blizzards I can remember. But as a whitetail I can not imagine how difficult that would have made your life. NE Ohio is getting a bit of an old fashion winter this year and we currently have between 24 and 36" of snow on the ground. In additions to feeders (which are legal in Ohio) there are other easy things you can do to help your local herd. Any tracks you can create will help reduce the energy they use to travel from bedding to food. Any cuttings you can do that get the browse down to face level will help them. These cuttings do not need to be huge just a handful of trees can create a significant amount of browse for them.
