if you are surrounded by AG, once their beans or hay or whatever are yellow and gone you have new green the deer will flood in the start of Oct. I personally would keep some of that clear cut and let those popples grow back. they will be 5-6 ft by Sept. They will be in there destroying that new growth. I have done this, leaving some of that clear cut will be more beneficial that putting all food. just my opinion though.
Apples are fine, but they are not a plant and forget thing. you'll need proper fencing, water the hell out of them at least the first year. mulch and fertilizer and keep the weeds out of the fences. make the fences big enough as well or you'll lose all the new growth. they will get to em. leave at least 3 feet around and you'll have to readjust each or every other year for growth. if you don't, any gains will be eaten.
As far as activity on property and food plots, you'll do no damage in the summer months. those deer couldn't give a crap. Doe especially and 9 times out of 10 those bucks you see on cam may not be there anyway come fall. you can get away with murder until the velvet comes off, then you have a different animal all together. they go from food, to living and breeding midset in a couple weeks time. even if you have a mature buck, you go in to spray twice over a summer, then a day to plant, you won't run him off ...contrary to popular belief. if you don't go rolling around in the bedding areas you are fine. summer deer are a totally different. I plant the last week in august, I have deer on cam walking across brown dirt hours later. I had cams go off on other plots while i'm out planting.
I believe many people think you'll scare off deer in the summer because the hot shots on the video's want to make you think that. They don't tell you that they are in there loading up corn piles every week for 3 months also. In Ohio it's a common practice....but they don't tell you that on the video's. 90% (and that may be low) of the time you see a video from Ohio, it's a food pile influenced kill. it's legal there, everyone does it. they just don't tell you cause they want to sell video's and act like they are legends. that was a vent, but true.
