Question of The Week – Rub

Posted by romeethredge on January 13, 2012

Yes, it was a deer rub like the one here, in the photo. Deer do this to rub velvet off their antlers and also to announce their presence to other deer.  Here’s a link to a UGA Publication concerning Wildlife Food Plots http://warnell.forestry.uga.edu/service/library/index.php3?docID=419&docHistory%5B%5D=13

Here’s a useful publication concerning plantings for wildlife in Georgia.

Here’s a link to a publication concerning Deer Tolerant Plants you can use where they are a problem, http://www.caes.uga.edu/publications/pubDetail.cfm?pk_id=7872

Here’s a link to some of the Deer research at UGA http://www.ugadeerresearch.org/

This week I want to ask what this is we saw last week in the water and why did we witness this?
