I have planted apple, pear, peach, blue berry, paw paw the pear are staring to produce this year.....I  have seen deer eating pears before but its to early for my trees to be productive.  I wish I had planted everything ten years ago.

Excellent!  Just be sure to keep those trunks protected from the bucks.

Crab apples and persimmon are always a good choice. I am also familiar with the sand pears. Once they start producing they put off a lot of pears.

I have an active scrape/licking branch for the last few years. seems odd, but the boys need to mark their territory. looks like you have some mature bucks to target

I have a lot of native mulberries here, but surprisingly the deer don't seem to eat them much, same with wild cherries.  The raccoons on the other hand love the mulberries.  Knocked five out of one tree in about a minute a few years ago.

Saturday I just planted two pear trees and a crab apple tree in my favorite hunting spot.  It is supposed to rain all week.  Just maybe one day i'll get to hunt around these trees when they bear fruit.
