I purchased some acres and it is just row crop land but I seen couple of deer on a mission running across my acres. How do I attract them back? Can I just set up a feeder and they will find it? I've never seen any in this area and I travel this same highway for 15 years to and from work. Guess I'm just blind?

Build them green acres, and they will come.

Anything changed on the acres or near by properties lately? like new feed crops put in or property clearings? or maybe a portion that has grown up and been untouched for a good while?

Ok thanks. Nothing has changed. I just never lived on premises. I just traveled the highway. I live pretty close to town and still debating on letting my acres grow wild or keep it leased to farmer.

Deer range continues to expand into areas that have not held deer in the past.

Collin county is a good example of this.

I 'd say depending on how many acres you have whether its worth letting it go fallow or not. If it is 100, then letting up to half go would be good, 50 acres of growth and 50 with some kind of ag, think paid for food plot each year..
