    I know everyone has their own opinions and differences but what do you guys end up hunting more? I always find myself sticking to apple trees. Do you guys have any thoughts on which one is more promising?

    I have no apple trees so.. oaks it is. However, my dad used to hunt an old overgrown apple orchard and it was not uncommon to see 20+ deer a day.

    Depends where you hunt, what time of year, what your main food sources are and quite possibly a deers specific tastes. I have trail cams on both apple and oak trees. And the same deer hit the same tree and not the other.

    Hunt all food sources at the right time. And you'll see deer.
