Coues Deer Response to wildfires?

Recommended Posts

How do Coues typically respond to wildfires and burn scar regrowth?  How soon after the fire will deer repopulate an old burn to take advantage of the fresh regrowth?  Does the lack of cover in a large burn area deter bigger bucks from coming back in?  Is the regrowth as soon as a year after a fire may be a big draw to them?   If you had a big buck patterned before a fire, will he return to the same spot afterwards?

Thanks for any input!

They only leave temporarily. G&F posted pictures of Coues feeding in the Superstitions in spots that were still smoldering.
