    I bought 25 acres this summer that borders my farm , and it was heavy logged about 4 years ago. It is thick and by thick I mean u can step off the logging roads because of the 8 foot of regrowth and thorns! I know deer use it but almost seems that it is getting to thick. What should I except in the years to come? Is it going to thin out or just get thicker? Deer goin to use it more or less? Should I look into controlled burns or just let it do its thing?
