Those nuts are for the birds and squirrels....dont believe the deer want anything to do with them. Too many other options available this time of year anyway.

I have noticed, over the years that whitetail will try to avoid an area that has walnut trees. I think the smell from the green outer casing of the nuts is so strong it screws up their sniffer.

I dont think they like hickory nuts either......look how long it takes a squirrel to cut open one.
But they dont mind the trees.....I used bow hunt in a creek bed that was lined with walnut trees......a good straight tree for your climbing stand and the leaves drop early to give you a good view.....I saw alot of deer under them.

wife had a big bag of shelled walnuts that were kinda old, and was going to throw them out, so I took them and threw them out for the squirrels at the edge of the woods, Day later a deer was out there milling around all day trying to ever one of them. Am I on to something?
