Some of these warmer winter days are an ideal time to hinge cut trees.  We hinge in the winter to put food on the ground for our deer, and to enhance our hunting experience in the fall.  As part of an overall plan, we hinge at differing heights for differing reasons, and here is a short list.

Bedding/Feeding Hinges – Hinge at neck height so the deer can easily walk around underneath the canopy you create.

Blocking/Funneling – Hinge at hip height to impede movement.

Plot Edge Feathering – Cut at knee height to impede plot access, cut at neck height to encourage plot access.

Hinge cuts are an important part of most comprehensive property plans, and when done properly can dictate deer movement.  Always wear your safety gear, and enjoy these warmer winter days when your hinged trees are more flexible and less prone to snap in half when you cut.
