Do deer eat pecans? Reason for asking is because I am in the process of buying a sixty-acre tract that is roughly 70% timber and probably half of the trees are native pecans. Located near Chelsea, Oklahoma.
i posted the exact same question at another forum and a few guys stated that deer do eat pecans. I have never witnesses this. I have 160 acres in Lincoln county and have probably 30 pecan producing trees---even a few paper shell trees. I have never seen a deer feeding under a pecan tree but I've got plenty of squirrels.
I dont know about deer but turkeys stay in an orchard just off the coast from me.
Every fall I see big flocks of them under the pecan orchards.
as my 7th Grader says "there is another doe, lets turn-em into meat! "
