    Found these while harvesting some persimmon from scat. Kind of thought black cherry seed, but seem really red in color. About 1mm in size. Any clues?

    Maybe for cover...can’t think of anything else they would use it for.

    Hackberry is WORTHLESS! I have a ton of it.....it feeds birds....migrating black birds love them. I don't see deer browse the smaller ones or even rub them....

    Know a guy who likes to run coons with hounds. He said there are times when a coon's feet never hit the ground (weeks at a time). Den and eat in large hackberry trees.

    In doing some additional research, it looks poor for deer, but good for birds, including quail, which our land is in quail region in ohio.

    I give Hackberry a pass when the saw is out for this very reason. I like the diversity and they are good for other critters.
