Whats doing this??

Post  kyhunter123 on Sat Jul 04, 2015 10:17 am

While checking cameras yesterday i started noticing this in one field. Then as i went into the next one, It was destroyed. i didnt go around the whole field but what i did go around was like this all the way around it and as far as i could see into the corn was like this. I was at first thinking coons. But there is 300-400 yards of this all the way down this field. And i dont think coons would do that much damage. idk though. As i was heading out i was thinking maybe it was the bad winds we had and started looking at the other fields and none of the other fields were like that. Would deer do it??

Did you happen to have hail in a strong thunderstorm?

I'm not sure. Maybe earlier this week. But it's only this field that is like that.

Black bears are hell on a corn field, if you have some of those around I would bet that is what is tearing your field up

I got to hunt a farm that hadnt been hunted in a while once. The edge of the corn field facing the woods looked like the top half had been bush hogged about 10 yards deep by 100 yards long. I dont know if the deer were eating it or what but they destroyed it. So it could be deer, if there are a bunch of deer tracks. If the damage is minimal coons will sometimes climb the stalks and break leaves off like that.

I have to say coons also. I have seen bears destroy a field , not only eating corn but then they get upset at the stalks and just knock them down , roll around like a kid playing and so on. If you had a 10-20 foot circle , I would say a bear then.
