Mast producing trees that don’t drop their fruits during the fall and winter can be overlooked by land managers, and that’s a real bummer. We like to establish spring dropping (late May – June) mulberries along wide roads leading to our favorite deer hunting spots. 

Think about it- why would you want to concentrate deer that will hear/see/smell you while walking to your stand? By establishing summer droppers like mulberries or black cherry in areas that are used for deer season access, you’re less likely to bump bucks off their bed when entering that area. Mulberries are superfast growing wildlife trees that will attract and hold just about all walks, including our friend, the wild turkey. 

Check your state regulations, but red mulberries really attract the egg eaters, which provides a no-brainer spot to place traps in a time of year when hens can use all the help they can get. For woodworkers, these trees develop beautiful, rot resistant yellow heartwood in no time that turns orangey-red with age. About half of the seedlings will prove to be males and not produce, which can be used to make turkey calls, fence posts, birdhouses, bowls, bows and more.
