    difference in hunting native , pines and bluegum stands

    looking for easier areas to take young kids hunting and wondering if anyone has noticed a difference in hunting different types of tree blocks as in do deer stay in areas of bluegums or are they just travelling through same with dense pine forests. are they too acidic for feed without decent sized clearings .have only shot deer in native bush some bordering pines and a couple on farmland. I have seen fallow moving through pines and gums while driving down the road and seen them travel up and down a hunting block my neighbour used to own but they always on the move . deerstalkers are negotiating with rayoneir about managing hunting access to their blocks but a lot of hoopla and a heap of gear has to be carried and I don't know if it is worth the extra or just stick to doc permitted areas. interested to know what sort of ratio people see deer in the different types of vegetation even if there is a difference in farmland bordered by different types of trees.

    Gums dont sour the soil like pine so better feed grows within a stand however deer seem to like an understory and as said above pine is a popular camping ground
