    Thoughts? The app suggests flowering dogwood or persimmon.[​IMG]

    My first thought is persimmon. I compared it to a pic of a known persimmon from my place and the bark looks the same.

    My guess would be flowering dogwood. I have quite a few of those with similar bark in a thicket that I can’t check during the season.

    Mark it and look for wavy leaf edges and these red berries around the deer season opener

    Persimmon bark is darker than that, normally. Look at a branch, dogwood has opposing branches, not staggered, like persimmon.

    Flowering Dogwood...absolutely.
    Years ago I was in my stand and I could hear a barely audible sound like a muffled "snap". "What is that?" I finally looked straight down and there was a doe...I had no idea how she snuck in on me, but there she was...vacuuming up Dogwood fruits. The snap sound I was hearing was the hard seed in the Dogwood fruit popping between her teeth. Flowering Dogwood is a good browse species here...both the fruits and the twigs. Decent rub and scrape species, too.

    Thanks everybody!
    Tap, good to know. I've seen quite a few of them so I'll have to pay attention to browse pressure when the season rolls back around this fall.
