This week on the Gamekeepers podcast we welcome a pair of guests to sit between the turkeys and answer a lot of questions about white-tailed deer. Dr. Bronson Strickland and Dr. Steve Demarais of the Mississippi State Deer Lab join us and we talk about change. The change in the physiology of bucks from summer to fall, the change in the native forage and planted plots from summer to fall, and the change in antlers from velvet to hard-horned. We also discuss the importance of the mighty acorn to wildlife. Did you know that bucks will eat the velvet off their own and another bucks antlers? That surprised us. It’s an interesting one as we ask a lot of questions. You won’t want to miss this one. Listen, Learn and Enjoy!
