So what are deer doing when it’s 105 degrees and were in the middle of a 100 year drought? Judging from my daily observations on our ranch, during daylight hours you would think the country was void of life. When the sun is high, everything is bedded in the shade. I see a few bucks out feeding before sunrise in the morning, when I try to beat the heat and go for a run or hike. And again from sunset till dark, when the temperature starts to drop.
The deer I do see have all been doing the same thing. Every deer I’ve seen recently have been eating beans off mesquite trees.
